Distributor boxes product range overview

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 with IDC displacement connection

Save time and connectors. With the QUICKON IDC displacement connection, you connect the open cable ends directly to the distributor without stripping the insulation.

Fully molded distributor boxes

The fully molded distributors offer comprehensive protection for the PCB even against corrosive influences.

Distributor box with double assignment

By using Y distributors, up to two signals can be connected per slot. This saves space in the system and reduces cabling costs.

Distributor box with pluggable master cable connection

A pre-assembled master cable simplifies installation. The plug-in version enables the box and cable to be replaced separately during servicing.

Shielded M12 distributor box

With 360° shielded sensor/actuator boxes, cables, and connectors, you can transmit signals reliably even in EMC-critical applications.

Distributor box for outdoor 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.

Stainless-steel distributor box for the food industry

The food industry places the highest 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.
