A complete package for decentralized power supplies

| By Mary Page Bailey

This company now offers a fully comprehensive M12 Power product portfolio in K, L, S and T codings. Besides the already available overmolded M12 Power cables, the M12 Power range now also includes field wireable male connectors, receptacles and junctions, as well as adapter cables (photo) for M12 to 7/8-in. connections. In addition to the connection technology, the company is also offering M12 Power technology in robust I/O and RFID block modules, as well as power-supply units with IP67 protection. The wide range of possible combinations enables simple and efficient solutions for a structured and decentralized power supply — from the power-supply unit to the control cabinet through to any end devices. Users benefit from high system availability, as well as time and cost savings thanks to the safe and high-performance power transfer — even at high ambient temperatures. The four- and five-pin L-coded, as well as four-pin T-coded, M12 Power connectors, are specially designed for use with d.c. power-supply units for up to 63 V d.c./16 A. The 5-pin K coded and 4-pin S coded variants were developed for power supplies up to 630 V a.c./16 A and are particularly suitable for the power supply of a.c. motors and drives. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co.
