TURCK, represented in Australia by Micromax , has released a four-pin picofast junction box with dual I/O per port.
Users can consolidate wiring when using four-pin sensors or connect up to 16 three-pin sensors. The four and eight-port fully encapsulated junction boxes are available with a snap lock or M8 threaded connection. The top mount home run connector or side exit integral cable provide easy access in small areas.
The picofast connectors are oriented to allow right angle cordsets to mate and provide a low profile for efficient wire consolidation of sensors and other devices. Picofast junction boxes provide a convenient way to maintain, identify, and consolidate machine or panel wiring from multiple I/O points. An available splitter allows for two three-pin devices to be connected to each port.
The top mount junction box, offered in four or eight ports, is available with a quick disconnect M16 homerun connector or a side exit integral cable. Homerun connector options include 14-pin M16 cordsets in straight or right angle configurations. The four-pin dual output per port offers an operating current of 3A/port and 4A/total. Operating voltage is 10V-48V dc and the industrial nylon housings offer an IP 67 protection rating.
