Junction Boxed For Sensors, Actuators

Sept. 15, 2005
IP 67/68-rated sensor/actuator junction boxes, designated the 757 Series, are said to safely extend control cabinet functions out into the field and locally on the machine or process.

The 757 Series is available in 4, 6, or 8 ports/box with either four or five poles per port (five-pole versions allow two signal lines per port). The master cable can be configured via an M23 connector or preinstalled (precabled version). The M23 connector version lets the master cable connect/disconnect and offers an IP rating of 67. The precabled version offers an IP rating of 68. All cables, master or sensor/actuator, are a PUR Halogen-free type and meet the requirements of UL 94 V-0. Likewise, the junction boxes, made of polyamide 6.6, are halogen-free, silicon-free, and rated to UL 94 V-0. Additional features include a spacer accessory that eases installation via a modular manifold mounting concept; LED indication, for power and signal status; and marking tags/holders for every connection point, for easy circuit identification.
