M12 Junction / Bus systems
Cost effective and practical M12 wiring system for sensors and actuators which meets IP67 and open field bus systems like Profibus
Y junction boxes from CONEC with 5 pin connectors enable you to lay two incoming signals together at one E/A socket. This means that you can double your connection options for one actuator/ sensor box.
You can connect up to 16 initiators using one M12x1 junction box with 8 E/A sockets. ONEC overmoulded components are also available for the output connection to the sensor. This provides a cost-effective and practical wiring system in the field for sensors and actuators with a cabling system that meets protection class IP67. Junction boxes are used anywhere sensor and actuator signals need to be extended quickly and easily for connection to their superordinate control systems. Individual signals are either connected directly to the superordinate system via a homerun cable or via a connection interface. Optional LED displays for signal and power reduce the effort required to track down errors.
The CONEC product portfolio of passive distribution components has been expanded to include some new variants. In addition to the previously existing versions of Duo-splitter, i.e. T-splitter, a new Y-splitter line has been developed. This series provides a cost-effective and practical wiring system in the field for sensors and actors with a cabling system that meets protection class IP67. Junction systems are used anywhere sensor and actor signals need to be extended quickly and easly for connection to their superordinate control systems. Individual signals are either connected directly to the superordinate system via a homerun cable or via a connection interface.
Bus technology has advanced in industrial automation. The connectors required for data transmission are very BUS-specific. To access the complex world of Bus technology, Conec offers connectors for Profibus DP and Industrial Ethernet.
Profibus is a manufacturer-dependent, open field bus system for a variety of applications in manufacturing, processing and building automation.
Industrial Ethernet is the general term for all applications that use the Ethernet standard to network devices used in industrial automation. In industrial applications, networks must operate without interruption under extreme conditions, e.g. electromagnetic interference, very high constant temperatures as well as high mechanical specifications. Industrial Ethernet closes the circle, as it were, and creates a complete infrastructure, which stretches from the office to the machinery or even to the sensor.
For both bus systems, CONEC offers special M12x1 connectors with corresponding coding which meets the guidelines of the PNO (Profibus User Organisation) and the IEC 61076-2-101 Ad. 1. The coding used for these products (B and D coding) prevent incorrect connections using standard M12x1 components.
Both 4 and 8 way splitter boxes are available for the Food and Beverage Industries which have a stainless steel housing with a single incoming M23 connector or a factory fitted home run cable leading to either 4 way/4+ground or 8 way/4+ground M12 I/O ports.
