Circuit board inlet

SCHURTER has developed a new IEC C20 appliance inlet for efficient printed circuit board mounting. The GSP4 appliance inlet can be easily sandwiched between split enclosures and tested before installed in the equipment. Stabilizing posts provide a quick, snap-in assembly to the PCB. A version with screw mount stabilizers is also available. Used in power supplies and IT equipment requiring a 20A plug for solar or wind power projects, the new GSP4 appliance inlet offers a compact solution for IEC C20 inlets in applications where power components are board-mounted. Equipped with PCB terminals for L, N, and E, and a 6.3 mm x 0.8 mm quick-connect or solder tab for additional grounding to the chassis, the GSP4 can be securely snapped in or screwed onto a printed circuit board before soldering. This is achieved by means of robust stabilizing posts, which also serve to absorb withdrawal and insertion force.
