DIN-Rail Mount Adaptor Kits for Panel Mount 1- and 3-Phase Filters
SCHURTER now offers DIN-Rail mount adaptor kits with metal clips . The kits provide a simple solution for converting panel mount block filters to DIN-Rail mount for use inside control cabinets . Simply affix the clip to the filter using the screws provided in the kit , then snap the converted filter onto the DIN-Rail .
Panel mount block filters are commonly used in equipment to filter interferences that are potentially harmful to the operation of the equipment and other equipment nearby . With more applications using intelligent devices
emerging in the industrial market , the need for EMC filters is also increasing , although identifying and sourcing DIN-Rail mount types for use in control cabinets can be a challenge . Like other DIN-Rail adaptors for other types of products , SCHURTER ’ s DIN-Rail adaptor kit addresses this need with a simple design for quick and easy installation . Sustaining a good ground connection is carefully considered in the clip design , which uses heavy-duty metal to ensure a constant ground connection of the filter housing to the rail . The DIN-Rail mount adapter kit fits with SCHURTER ’ s compact range of EMC filter series : FMAB NEO , FMAB HV , FMBB NEO , FMBB EP , and FMAD CP . It is also suitable for use with other panel mount filters , provided the mounting holes are the same .
Pricing for the DIN-Rail mount adaptor kits start at under $ 4.50 in 50-piece quantities . Packaged in 20 pieces . Link to DIN-Rail Clip Data Sheet . For sales and product information , contact Savannah Lee at ( 800 ) 848-2600 or by email at info . sinc @ schurter . com .
