Installation connectors and installation cables

Installation connectors and installation cables

Connect cables easily and flexibly with our installation connectors and installation cables. Depending on the application, choose between simple cable connections, convenient power distribution or compact device connections. Robust housings and high degrees of protection up to IP69K enable reliable power transmission outdoors and in wet environments.

Installing installation cables in industrial systems and infrastructure facilities

Widely branched industrial systems and infrastructure facilities place stringent requirements on the installation connectors and installation cables in use. Our IPD, QPD, and PRC installation systems provide flexible and robust solutions for continuous power distribution. Connect the installation cable quickly and without any hassle or the need for special tools – whether with fast IDC contact, easy Push-in Technology, or proven screw connection. Depending on the application, choose between simple cable connections, power distribution, or device connections.

IPD installation connectors Panel feed-throughs with Push-in connection

The pluggable IDP (Installation Power Distribution) panel feed-throughs feature a device connection that can withstand harsh conditions, as well as field and device-side Push-in connections that do not require power connectors. The power connection allows the use of wiring robots on the device side and the use of 3- and 5-pos. cables up to 2.5 mm² on the field side. The installation cable conductors are fed through the sleeve and connected directly, without having to open the device. Then, simply snap the sleeve into place and establish strain relief using the nut. This allows convenient connection, even in hard-to-reach areas. The IPD installation connector is based on established industry standards, and is intended for applications outdoors and in wet environments.

QPD installation system with QUICKON fast connection

Industrial power distribution does not have to be time-consuming or complicated. The robust IP68/IP69K QPD installation system for capacities up to 690 V/40 A is proof of this. With the QPD cable connectors, power distributors, or device connection, you can connect installation cables to cables up to 5 x 6.0 mm² quickly and without any hassle or the need for special tools. Thanks to the convenient IDC QUICKON fast connection, you save up to 80% on cabling time. Depending on the application, choose between fixed and pluggable connections with up to four outputs.

With the QPD installation system, you can pre-assemble installation connectors easily and connect them on-site without opening the device. This means that the delicate electronics in the power connector remain protected from environmental influences.

QUICKON Secure connection of installation cables in just a few steps

The QUICKON fast connection is based on IDC insulation displacement connection technology, and is designed for applications where round and AS-Interface cables need to be connected efficiently on-site. The connection can be disconnected at any time, which means that components can be reused. This connection system allows you to connect multi-position cables in just a few steps! The fast-connection technology automatically provides contact and strain relief when tightened.

  1. Strip the installation cable and prepare the PE conductor.
  2. Insert the wires into the nut and snap into the marked wire guides.
  3. Cut the ends of the litz wires flush.
  4. Push the union nut onto the contact carrier and tighten it as tight as it will go. You will feel the connection snap into place when the optimum tightening point is reached.

QPD product range overview

(1) Panel feed-throughs
The panel feed-throughs are cable glands that can be connected from the outside. As a result, devices no longer need to be opened for installation cable to be connected. This ensures that the manufacturer’s specific protection class is maintained.
(2) Cable connectors
The cable connector can be used to lengthen or repair installation cables. Combined with the installation connectors, the cable connector can be used as a flexible coupling connection.
(3) Installation connectors
The installation connector with leading PE contact is ideal for quick device replacement in service situations or for installations with pre-assembled cables. It is coded to prevent mismatching.
(4) T-power distributor
Installing a branch line for consumers is easy with the compact T-power distributor.
(5) H-power distributor
The H-power distributor is a compact, robust junction box that can be connected quickly. The four connections are connected in parallel to each other, which also allows them to be used as a 4-way distributor.
