|THROUGH PANEL CONNECTIONS WITHOUT THE HASSLE|
Minneapolis, Minn. ? TURCK?s new M12 eurofast? junction box saves installation time by mounting one junction box instead of punching eight receptacle holes for through panel signal connections. This innovative design was inspired by numerous customer requests to consolidate wiring with inside panel cable or lead home run options to lessen the number of parts required and simplify the purchasing process. The junction box is available with nickel plated brass or stainless steel insert threads.
|BL ident CONFIGURATION SOFTWARE BY TURCK|
Minneapolis, Minn. ? TURCK announces new configuration software for its recently introduced BL ident RFID system. The free software aids in RFID equipment selection by quickly simulating an application?s parameters and values, and it is available at www.turck.com.
|12-PIN eurofast? CONNECTORS: MORE PINS IN A SMALL PACKAGE|
Minneapolis, Minn. ? TURCK Inc. has expanded its line of M12 eurofast connectors to handle even more applications with the addition of a 12-pin connector in a compact molded body. Twelve-pin connectors are commonly used in motor environments, material handling and safety industries.
IP 67 ANALOG INPUT STATION FOR DEVICENET?
Minneapolis, Minn. ? TURCK Inc. has added an analog input station capable of supporting four analog inputs on the DeviceNet network to its expanding line of fully encapsulated DeviceNet I/O stations.
The analog inputs may be configured for either analog current (0 to 20 mA or 4 to 20 mA) or voltage (0 to 10 V or -10 to 10 V). A rotary switch or DeviceNet configuration software may be used to configure the station for all analog current inputs, all voltage inputs or any combination of the two per customers? specifications.
