Schaffner upgrades power entry modules to meet IEC IEC62368-1 for AV equipment

For use in audio/video (AV), information and communications equipment, Schaffner has announced that the FN 9280 and FN 9290 IEC power entry modules (PEMs) are now approved to IEC62368-1. This certification enables customers manufacturing AV, information and communications technology equipment to comply more easily with the requirements of the new technology-independent ‘hazard-based’ standards approach.

The additional approval will be beneficial to development design times of products for these markets, says Schaffner, to integrate the IEC PEMs in new equipment designs.

Key features of the Schaffner FN 9280 and FN 9290 families of IEC PEMs include a removable front flange which offers 4D (front, back, horizontal and vertical) assembly, snap-in mounting and various performance versions including single or dual stage and reduced leakage current levels. The FN 9280 and FN 9290 simplify panel design as all versions have the same cut out size.

According to Schaffner, the PEMs’ best-in-class performance-to-size relationship enables the most demanding applications to shape electricity, even in small form factors.

Both the FN 9280 and FN 9290 families of IEC PEMs are available from stock all over the world through the Schaffner distribution and sales network.

Schaffner specialises in the fields of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and power quality. The Schaffner Group contributes to the promotion of technologies for the generation of renewable energies, ensures the reliable functioning of electronic devices and systems in compliance with quality and performance standards, and meets the requirements for increasing energy efficiency.
