This distributor box makes connecting actuators easy

With the universal M12 distributor boxes (photo), actuator connectors (such as those for solenoid valves) can be connected quickly and easily. Thanks to the full wiring of the M12 slots, both the switching wires, as well as the PE connection of valve connectors, are safely and easily connected to controllers and relays in the central control cabinet. The wire cross-sections of the permanently connected master cables (1.0 mm² for the supply wires and 0.5 mm² for the signal wires) are sufficiently large and have low cable resistances. If even larger wire cross-sections are required, these can be flexibly connected to sensor/actuator boxes with plug-in screw connections or spring-cage connections. LED status indicators, as well as the M12 Speedcon fast-locking technology (which reduces installation time by up to 90%) can also be added to the products. — Phoenix Contact, Blomberg, Germany
