System cables with D-SUB and FLK connectors

System cables with D-SUB and FLK connectors

System cables with D-SUB or FLK connectors are the quick, error-free 1:1 connection between automation devices and termination boards. Select from a wide range of pre-assembled system cables with different numbers of positions. They can be connected with single wires and pin or socket strips. Our service for you: Alongside standard lengths between 0.5 m and 10 m, we can supply you with system cables in the length you specify.

Your advantages

  • Comprehensive service: standard lengths from 0.5 to 10 m as well as custom lengths
  • High current carrying capacity due to the large conductor cross-section of each single-core wire
  • Flexible due to free cable end with single-core wire marking
  • Halogen-free versions for increased fire protection requirements as well as PVC versions

Halogen-free cables for Siemens SIMATIC® ET 200SP HA

Halogen-free cables for Siemens SIMATIC® ET 200SP HA

For increased fire protection requirements and a fast, fault-free connection between the I/O card and field wiring

With the new halogen-free (HF) splitting cables, increased requirements can be met, especially with regard to fire protection. The HF cables complement the existing Plug and Play solution (front adapter, HF cables, and relays) for the Siemens SIMATIC® ET200SP HA process controller. This ensure a fast, fault-free connection between the I/O card and field wiring.

These are the advantages

  • Cable: halogen-free
  • Connector: 1x D-SUB 37 to 4x (2x) D-SUB 15
  • Available lengths: 1, 2, 3, ... 10 m
  • Conductor cross-section: 0.14 mm²
  • Amperage per single-core wire: 1 A
  • Operating temperature up to +70°C

These are the main features

  • Suitable for higher fire protection requirements due to no halogens
  • Fast, clear, and fault-free wiring thanks to a plug-in system solution
  • Clear signal assignment due to byte-wise marked plugs
  • Simple Plug and Play connection between I/O cards and field level thanks to the modular solution (front adapter, HF cable, and relay)

Color coding of free cable end

Flexible due to free cable end with single-core wire marking

With a user-friendly color and number coding system, the wires can be assigned directly. Clear assignment of units and tens with the simple color coding system allows clear marking. For example, brown always represents the digit “1” and yellow the digit “4”. So the wire with the brown-yellow marking is always wire number 14.
