SCHURTER launch first IEC standardised 400 VDC connector system

SCHURTER has launched the world's first UL approved IEC TS 62735-1 standardised DC connector system, the GP21 rewireable plug connector and the GS21 panel mount socket-outlet have been designed to enable efficient DC power distribution in data centre power distribution strips and UPS.

In the digital age, vast quantities of DC-powered devices are in use: consumer electronics, industrial IT, communications technology, and electric vehicles to name a few. New technologies are beginning to emerge to enable direct current at the source of supply, which in turn is driving the establishment of standards.

Using Direct DC current improves the quality of the power being supplied. Problems with harmonics and harmonic distortions are eliminated and phase compensation is also not necessary. Furthermore, coupling synchronization to different sources and networks is no longer necessary. The reduction of steps to convert power also results in reduced power loss and simplified cooling systems whilst operational reliability and efficiency are improved

IEC TS 62735-1 is the standard which has been established for DC power distribution up to 2.6 kW. These products require a more complex design and must be designed considering the potential for arcing associated with disconnecting the DC power supply. The cable mount SCHURTER GP21 rewireable plug accommodates a cable cross-section of between 0.75mm2/18 AWG and 1.5 mm2/16 AWG and is rewireable and therefore suitable for field wiring. The corresponding GS21 panel mounting socket-outlet is designed for front panel thicknesses of 1.5mm or 2.0mm with a standard panel cut-out of 39.6mm x 22.6mm. The panel mount connectors are available with the option of Quick Connect 6.3 x 0.8 mm or PCB terminals for ease of installation.
