Minneapolis, MN—January 30, 2013—TURCK introduces a new 6-port M12 passive junction box, designed to easily integrate multiple devices into a single unit. Featuring a compact, low-profile design, the 6-port model allows simple installation in diverse factory automation applications, ranging from packaging and automotive to material handling and mobile equipment.
With one or two discrete signals per port, the 6-port junction box is capable of providing up to 12 discrete signals—ensuring reliable connectivity for multiple devices. The junction box consolidates several discrete devices in an area to one device, which is then connected to a controller via a single cable. This eliminates each device requiring its own individual cable, delivering a more cost-effective, streamlined connectivity solution.
“Offering flexible integration capabilities, the new 6-port M12 passive junction box offers our customers dependable connectivity performance in virtually any industrial or factory automation application,” said Jeff Schoenberg, Connectivity Product Manager, TURCK. “Plus with a compact, fully encapsulated housing, the junction box ensures easy installation and superior strength and ingress resistance in harsh environments.”
The 6-port model provides 2A of current per signal and up to 9A total current per junction box. For durable performance, the M12 passive junction box features IP67-rated ingress protection and reliably operates in temperatures ranging from -40C to +85C degrees.
