TURCK has introduced a new overmolded M40 powerfast connectors, delivering durable power connectivity in demanding environments. Offering more durable connectivity than field-assembled versions, overmolded M40 powerfast connectors are 100% factory tested to ensure optimal performance in harsh industrial automation applications.
The connectors feature power and signal capabilities within the same connector, and are capable of up to 35 amps. The M40 powerfast line offers male or female, straight connectors, standard and custom lengths and pigtails or extensions. For a complete system, the powerfast line also provides mating receptacles, cordsets, splitters and a jumper plug.
“In comparison to traditional field-assembled connectors, these provide a more cost-efficient, tamper-proof solution with ingress protection in demanding applications, including automotive, conveyor OEMs and material handling,” says Jay Bartsias, Turck Product Manager.
Allowing for a discrete or distributed power system, the connectors are ideal for power applications, including applications with motors, lights, and heaters. The connectors feature a protection rating of IP67 for optimal protection against dust and water ingress.
