TURCK Inc., represented by Micromax Pty Ltd , has released a new 8-pin M12 eurofast connector that was designed specifically for use with "Kübler by TURCK" incremental encoders.
Kübler by TURCK encoders are used in strenuous factory applications such as material handling, conveyors systems, process control and web control.
The E-WKC 8T-PX3-930-* was designed to provide quick and easy connectivity in demanding environments.
The E-WKC 8T-PX3-930-* cordset has three LEDs housed in a translucent moulded right-angle connector for indication of channels A, B and Z. Green LEDs indicate channels A and B, while amber is used for the index channel.
The LEDs can also be used during machine set-up for home position indication and provide operational status of the encoder output channels. The cordset allows the use of 5-30Vdc and draws minimal current for proper operation.
The E-WKC 8T-PX3-930-* cordset is manufactured with an extremely rugged, PVC flexlife cable that is designed to withstand over 2 million flex cycles.
They are available with nickel-plated brass or stainless steel coupling nuts and provide protection that meets the following standards - UL, CSA, NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P and IEC IP 68.
