Splitter boxes are used where several sensor signals are collected to forward them via a common cable. Splitter boxes are available in several versions.
Type M12 with 4, 6 or 8 signal connections, with and without LED signal display, with field cable connection or with M23 connection.
For reliable signal transmission the splitter boxes must meethigh requirements.
High protection against moisture ingress and high material resistance to aggressive liquids are important requirements for high machine uptime even in the case of high shock and vibration stress.
Benefits of the ifm Splitter boxes are:
An integrated end stop reliably protects the O-ring against excessive pressing.
Correct mounting possible without an expensive torque wrench.
Materials adapted to different application requirements.
High shock and vibration resistance.
For every application there is the right solution:
Splitter boxes of the ecolink series with the order numbers EBC are the first choice when reliability and quality are required.
Thanks to an integrated end stop the O-ring is protected against excessive pressing. In combination with plugs and jumper cables of the ecolink series with asymmetrically acting vibration protection, these versions are especially suited for applications of high environmental stress.
High-quality materials, adapted to very different conditions guarantee the user that the signals are reliably transmitted.
Due to well-selected technology and materials these products are perfectly suited for the following applications:
Hygienic and wet areas (food and beverage)
Tool and engineering industries
DBI Control have recently used the EBC026 in one of our control systems, as you can see in the photo they were identified and numbered before installation using Cembre labels.
