Save on costs and installation space
"For conventional wiring of motors, servo-drives or linear units/drives, time and costs for cabling, maintenance and diagnostics are very high.
Separate cables from the switch cabinet are used for the power supply and control of every single motor. This procedure does not only require much space, but also causes high costs.
With the new CONEC SuperCon series, a compact hybrid connector system has been developed, combining power supply and data transmission in one single connector. This technology is equivalent to the modern connection and interface wiring technology."
CONEC has introduced patch cords in its product range that are manufactured with an Industrial Ethernet cord with a stranded wire cross-section of AWG22. Low losses are realized it allows for long transmission distances.
In industrial environments, the ProfiNet cord with PUR insulation can be used. With all RJ45 connectors, the cable shield is connected through the internal strain relied to the...
CONEC is extending their range of DT and Superseal valve connectors with a double cable outlet version.
These would mostly be used by those who require Y-distributors for distribution of signals and power. This allows the possibilities for making systems more compact and reduces installation space, for example in a DaisyChain application with multiple cascaded connectors.
