PCB connection technology for Ethernet APL
Phoenix Contact provides a comprehensive product portfolio of PCB terminal blocks and PCB connectors for Single Pair Ethernet, with which intelligent field devices can be integrated into switch-based Ethernet environments.
The PCB connection technology satisfies the requirements of the “APL Port Profile Specification (Draft 0.3)”, and is therefore ideal for applications in process automation. Moreover, versions are available for the Ex e type of protection in accordance with IEC 60079-7 for use in potentially explosive areas.
With horizontal, vertical, and angled conductor connection directions, the PCB terminal blocks and PCB connectors are suitable for a variety of device designs. Color coding and identification prevent incorrect connections, thus ensuring easy wiring.
