A new generation of M8 sensor/actuator distributors have been introduced by Murrelektronik, represented in Australia by SICK . The new light, compact distribution system, the MVP8 M8, is easy and quick to assemble and disassemble for transportation, conversion or servicing.
Individual supply lines can be accurately connected to the MVP8 at low cost on site without soldering, even in cases where space is at a premium. The basic housing is screwed to extruded assembly profiles or directly to the machine, which saves time, and the plug-in connecting cap with convenient screw-in/plug-in terminals is separately manufactured with a cable.
The product range is extremely light, which also allows components to be fitted to moving machine parts right where the process is located. LED indicators and clearly marked identification signs at each plug-in position make commissioning and maintenance child's play.
Self-connecting sensor/actuator boxes with rapidly and conveniently connecting spring clamp terminals are also available. These components have excellent resistance to vibration and are maintenance-free.
MVP8 with M16 plug-in connection and appropriate M16 and actuator/sensor cables from Murrelektronik are suitable for serial machines. Continuous plug-in capability from the process to the controller allows repairs to be made without the need for special skills if cables are defective, which also reduces the downtime of the system.
The distribution boxes with securely connected, universally deployable PUR cables keep installation effort to a minimum, since the only connections that have to be made are in the switch cabinet.
