Stainless Steel Junction Box Connects Up to Eight Signals in Harsh Process Environments
Turck introduces its new stainless steel process junction box. With the ability to consolidate up to eight individual, localized analog or discrete signals into a single device, this junction box was designed to streamline connectivity requirements. For greater simplicity, the signals are then routed to a control unit through a single homerun cable.
The boxes also provide a robust connectivity solution in harsh environments such as oil and gas exploration, offshore drilling platforms and pharmaceutical plants. The junction boxes feature FM approval for Class 1, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D hazardous locations and ingress protection of IP67—including the junction boxes receptacles as long as the ports are covered/connected. Additionally, the boxes have cast 316 stainless steel electropolished housing to ensure optimal performance in areas that present severe environmental conditions including water, salt spray, gases and other corrosive materials.
Turck stainless steel junction boxes utilize Turck minifast (7/8”) or eurofast (M12) port connectors and include a multifast (M23) homerun connector.
