Reliable cable connections

(Steinenbronn) At the SPS IPC Drives fair, Telegärtner is presenting the new, highly compact VM-Pro 8-8 Class FA. It features a very compact and stable structure with IP67 class of protection. The round shape is also new. This enables fixed wiring for AWG 22-27 cables types without impair­ing the transmission properties. The extremely robust design with a die-cast zinc housing is 360° shielded and insulated. Users can extend, repair or relay cables with it without having to relay the complete line.

"The new VM-Pro 8-8 is insensitive to electrical interferences and safely protected against water and dust," Marcel Leonhard, Product Line Manager DataVoice at Telegärtner assures us. The new connection module for transmissions up to class FA (1.000 MHz) connects or extends elec­trically shielded and unshielded installation and patch cables with solid and stranded conductors of the AWG 22-27 type safe against manipulation. This allows EMC-secure connections in the quality of permanent wiring.

Water-tight, dust-proof EMC-secure connection

The manufacturer has placed great emphasis on user-friendly handling. The wires can be contacted simply by screwing for example. The connection is then reliably protected against water, dust and interference. The die-cast zinc housing also protect assures mechanical stability. This makes the connection module interesting for use in the harsh environment of industrial communication networks and the connection of machines and plants.

The two ends of the installation cables are connected by IDC insulation displacement contacts. The wire pairs can be fed to the IDC terminal with the wire twisting retained. Colour coding makes connection easier.

Connection module saves rewiring

In addition to the new VM-Pro 8-8 Class FA the long proven VM 8-8 Cat.7A connection modules in IP20 class of protection for connecting solid AWG22-26/1 conductors are still in the programme. -The Telegärtner connection modules are used whenever lines need to be extended or laid. Damaged cables can also be reconnected without having to re-lay the entire cable segment of a structured wiring. "This saves uses time and costs," Leonhard promises. You can connect 8-wire cables securely and safely virtually without impairing the transmission properties and without restricting the maximum link lengths.
