Schurter 6080 IEC Appliance Inlet C14/C18 Connectors

The Schurter 6080 IEC Appliance Inlet C14 and C18 connectors, available from Mouser Electronics, are screw-on, panel-mount appliance inlets that meet IEC, UL, and CSA requirements for appliance couplers.

Available in black and white, these connectors are designed for use with the SCHURTER 6080 power supply cords.

They are suitable for appliances with protection class one or two according to IEC standards 61140. The V-lock cord latching system prevents accidental removal of the power supply and allows for IP54 protection under load.

Both C14 and C18 connector variants are available with and without seal. With the seal, the connectors provide IP67 protection towards the housing. Without the seal, they provide IP20 protection.

With multiple industry approvals and certifications, these Schurter connectors are ideal for a wide array of applications, including medical devices, manufacturing equipment, maritime equipment, and robotics.
