Controller-specific system cabling

Controller-specific system cabling

Our control-specific system cabling was specially developed to allow quick, error-free connection to the I/O modules of a wide range of automation devices. Thanks to simple pluggable front adapter, system cable, and transition modules, you save up to 90% time in comparison to complex conventional wiring, which is also prone to error. VARIOFACE system cabling available for all conventional controller manufacturers.

Overview of controller-specific system cabling

The VARIOFACE controller-specific system cabling consists of the following components:

1. Front adapter:
The front adapter patches the signals so that complex wiring with single wires is not necessary. Simply plug the adapter into the correct input/output card of the controller. Solutions are available for the following controller manufacturers: ABB, Allen Bradley, Emerson, Honeywell, GE Fanuc, Phoenix Contact, Mitsubishi Electric, OMRON, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Yokogawa

2. System cable:
The signals are transmitted from the controller to the module via a pre-assembled system cable. Different versions are available, depending on length, number of positions, and shielding.

3. Termination boards:
The termination board transmits the control and field signals. You also benefit from our varied product range in this case. Termination boards are available in a wide range of connection technologies, overall widths, and different functions.

Conventional wiring with single wires

Conventional wiring with single wires

Wiring the I/O devices with single wires is very time-consuming and prone to errors.
Features:

  • Time-consuming, because many work steps are necessary – such as cutting the wires to length, stripping, marking, crimping, and laying them
  • Each single wire connection is a potential error source
  • The combinations of cables are confusing
  • Arduous troubleshooting
  • Maximum flexibility, thanks to single wires
