The special hygienic design makes the cordsets and connectors particularly easy to clean. The use of stainless steel ensures complete protection against corrosion. Additionally, contamination can be quickly detected due to the light-colored molding and cable jacket.

The demands placed on cordsets and connectors can vary depending on the area of application. Therefore, Phoenix Contact offers versions for the three zones in the food processing industry: product contact zone, splash zone and product-free zone.
