New series of passive junction boxes

 

New range … TURCK passive junction boxes

TURCK has extended its range of passive junction boxes with two active IO-Link variants.
 
This complements the company's current product line, which includes standard junction boxes with 4, 6 and 8 input connectors and a multi-pole cable output. 
 
The IO-Link junction boxes combine 16 switching status elements in a 16-bit IO-Link signal, bringing 16 switching signals from the machine to the control cabinet via a single standard cable.
 
Instead of assigning each signal to the individual wire of an M23 master cable, terminating and routing them into the control cabinet with expensive multi-pole cables, the IO-Link junction box only requires a single standard M12 cable. 
 
The signals can come from proximity switches, pushbutton actuators, optical switches or temperature sensors with a switch output. 
 
These junction boxes are optimal when a large number of signals have to be routed from the machine to the control cabinet.
 
Like TURCK's standard passive junction boxes, the IO-Link junctions are provided with LEDs that indicate the switching status of each individual input. 
 
The junction boxes can be connected to PNP or NPN LED circuits. The passive junction boxes are available as 4, 6 and 8 channel versions. 
 
The outputs of the devices are available with a straight female connector, side female connector or fixed cable output in 2m or 10m lengths.
