Field Wireable Connectors
TURCK Inc. has announced that the NEW IDC Field Wireable Connectors are now available for industrial automation applications that use eurofast® (M12, 2 to 5-pin straight or right angle style) or picofast® (M8, 3 and 4-pin straight style) field wireable connectors. Simple, tool-less, installation is made possible by twisting the field wireable connector ends together. This forcing the un-stripped conductors between terminating connector blades, providing a gas-tight connection.
Insulation Displacement Connection technology has proven to be an effective alternative to stripping and soldering wire terminations. Used in the telecommunication industry for over 30 years as IDC blocks, this technology offers an easy, cost effective method for field wiring multiple conductors. IDC connectors offer many advantages over screw terminal or soldered contacts because they allow for a gas-tight connection without the additional steps of stripping cable insulation, therefore saving time and money during installation. The solid IP67 connection can be re-used or reconnected through multiple cycles. The IDC Field Wireable Connectors are now available.
