Connectivity is an essential part of your automation solution that ties everything together. Turck’s solution provides a solid foundation for your application with a high standard for quality and a fast and flexible approach, allowing you to make the right connections.TURCK products have some of the highest tolerances to environmental extremes on the market. These parts are able to withstand the spraying, cleaning and humid or moist environments often found in food and beverage applications. TURCK cordsets and junction boxes allow you to do this.
Single and dual ended cordsets and panel mount receptacles for carrying power and/or signal to your components and processes. TURCK shielded cordsets with the shield tied to the coupling nut offer complete shielding for the entire length of the cordset. A metal sleeve inside the molded body connects the braid/foil shield of the cable to the metal coupling nut with no loss of shielding potential. TURCK armored cordsets are the ultimate in shielded connectors. A TURCK patented process allows the interlocked aluminum armor to be connected directly to the coupling nut offering the same protection as running conductors inside metal conduit.
TURCK junction boxes distribute power or consolidate signals from multiple sources to a single cable. TURCK Junctions are passive hubs. Some have short-circuit protection and voltage monitoring. Short-circuit protects the power on the trunk and allows use in Class 1, Div 2 locations. Junctions are made from two different materials; die-cast aluminum with a powder coated enamel finish or polyurethane PVC overmold. Both housings are available with either Nickel Plated brass or 316 stainless steel connectors. Junctions are rated NEMA 1, 3, 4, 4X, 12, 13 and IEC IP 67. These ratings are conditional, requiring a cordset or cap to be installed on all ports. Although the aluminum housing is rated 4X (salt-water spray test) TURCK highly recommends the polyurethane or fiberglass housing for aggressive environments.
