-- 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.
