TWINSBURG, OH — Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded and enhanced their family of AS-Interface Flat-to-Round-Cable converters and Flat-to-Flat adapters by introducing AS-Interface Flat-to-M12 adapter cables. These M12 adapters are available in straight or 90º M12 head angles with single or dual flat cable configurations in lengths of 0.3m, 1m, 2m or 5m.
Flat cable is a significant feature of AS-Interface, and these cable accessories greatly simplify and speed the connection of I/O devices such as intelligent sensors, emergency stop switches and modules to AS-Interface. They also facilitate the simple connection of junction boxes and panels to the trunk line, as well as power supplies and AS-Interface scanners to the bus.
Because of its simplicity, AS-Interface is an ideal wiring solution for machines that are built, tested and broken down for shipment before being reassembled at the customer plant. Typical applications include general conveyor and specialty machines. Safety solutions using AS-Interface Safety at Work also benefit from these timesaving adapters.
Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality factory and process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs pioneered the development of proximity sensors 45 years ago, and has set the standard for innovation and quality ever since.
