Appliance sockets integrate light pipes for status indication

November 08, 2017 //By Julien Happich
Schurter's wide range of IEC appliance sockets now allow for the installation of light pipes that allow the light from LEDs mounted on a printed circuit board on the back of the socket to reach the front of the unit.

The light pipes are always positioned precisely above the LEDs in injection-moulded guides. The direct integration of the light pipe into the appliance socket has several advantages: the light indicator is located close to the socket. This means that the signal can be assigned quickly and unequivocally, even in large power cabinets with a large number of sockets and cables.
