In addition to fully molded distributors with M8 threads, distributors with M12 metal or plastic threads are also available – depending on the application. Various versions of the master cable connection are available.
Distributor boxes for signal and power applications
Use distributor boxes for quick and clear cabling in the field. Distributor boxes bundle several cables into one master cable that is connected to the controller. Thanks to the status indicator, you have an overview of a large number of signals.More information
- Flexible cabling with a wide product range and various master cable connections on the distributor boxes
- Increased machine availability with easy diagnostics
- Molded housing and high degree of protection ensure safe use in the field
Passive distributor boxes for every application
In decentralized connection technology, passive distributor systems connect the I/O devices to the PLC. Phoenix Contact provides a series of sensor/actuator boxes that are specially tailored for every demand. Examples include different thread sizes, various connection technologies for the master cable, and products where the specifications go beyond the scope typically found in industrial environments.
Effective bundling and distribution
Save time and connectors. With the QUICKON IDC displacement connection, you connect the open cable ends directly to the distributor without stripping the insulation.
The fully molded distributors offer comprehensive protection for the PCB even against corrosive influences.
By using Y distributors, up to two signals can be connected per slot. This saves space in the system and reduces cabling costs.
A pre-assembled master cable simplifies installation. The plug-in version enables the box and cable to be replaced separately during servicing.
Distributor boxes for special applications
With 360° shielded sensor/actuator boxes, cables, and connectors, you can transmit signals reliably even in EMC-critical applications.
Outdoor M12 cabling is constantly exposed to extreme conditions: UV radiation, ozone pollution, extreme heat, extreme cold, and sudden changes in temperature. In addition, the cabling must withstand strong jet water, various types of oil, vibrations, and shocks.
The use of high-quality materials ensures that corrosion and extreme environmental impacts are not a problem for our M12 cabling for outdoor applications.
The food industry places high demands on components and materials with respect to the degree of protection, corrosion resistance, and hygiene. Phoenix Contact provides a complete solution for applications in this sector. The special hygienic design means that the distributor boxes are particularly easy to clean and the stainless steel ensures comprehensive corrosion protection.
