VARIOFACE system cabling connects the controller to the field - easy and error-free.
The VARIOFACE system cabling is a wiring concept that has been specially developed to allow connection to the I/O modules of a wide range of automation devices. Plug-in components are used instead of the conventional costly and error-prone single wiring. This means that you benefit from fast, clear, and error-free wiring.
The VARIOFACE system cabling consists of the following components:
1) front adapter
Marshals signals so that costly single wiring is not necessary. These are simply inserted into the matching 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. They are available in different versions (length, number of positions, and shielding).
The module forwards the controller and field signals. You also benefit form the varied product range. The modules are available with various connection technologies, overall widths, and different functions.
Conventional wiring with single wires
Wiring the I/O devices with single wires is very time-consuming and prone to errors.
Use the VIP power cabling universal front adapters to couple all signal types to your SIMATIC S7-300 controller modules via plug and play. The adapter versions with COMBI connector or open cable end are suitable for signal and power wiring. Implement applications with different switching requirements safely and flexibly. The connection to the CLIPLINE complete terminal block range on the field side means that you can also benefit from the full scope of functions of the terminal block.
The system cabling adapter allows fast and error-free connection of relay modules to the control level. This solution combines the product features of PLC-INTERFACE and VARIOFACE system cabling. The input and output block allows a channel-specific assembly depending on the switching requirements, thanks to the modular structure.
