The Lumberg Automation product range from Belden Australia has been extended with the addition of new M12 receptacle connectors, which can be used to connect control units to ProfiNet/Profibus networks via bus modules as well as to transmit analog data at field level.
These receptacle connectors are available with assembled control cables or with printed contacts for PCB mounting.
In printed contact versions, integrated shielding ensures optimum flexibility for shield continuity.
With the assembled connectors, and depending on the port assignment of the control units, a diagnostics interface can be implemented outside the switch cabinet using an Ethernet connection, practically eliminating disruptions resulting from repair or maintenance work.
Easy to install due to standardised M12 connection technology and colour-coded bus connections, these receptacle connectors also feature:
- industrial protection class IP67
- high shock and vibration resistance; and
- a wide temperature range of -30º to +80ºC.
