Product Spotlight: Field-Termination Assemblies

Nov. 7, 2008
Varioface Professional field-termination assemblies (FTAs) and cables manage wiring from field connections to process or motion controllers.

The FTAs come in ribbon, D-sub, OEM-controller-specific, and power-distribution versions. A metal mounting foot moves along the length of the product, making it easy to mount and disconnect.

Overmolded cables offer error-free connection for controller cabling, come in 90 and 180° for all ribbon sizes, and provide strainrelief and flexible inkjet labeling on both ends of the connector.
