With Industrie 4.0 actively moving into machine and plant automation, quick and reliable data and information exchange is even more important—it is now mandatory for successful decentralization of production plants. Many different data interfaces are put to use on the control and sensor/actuator level. In addition to fast information transfer, these fieldbus and Ethernet connections also have to fulfil the requirements of challenging industrial environments.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers a complete portfolio of industrial components in degree of protection IP67—from ready-to-use cables and field-attachable data connectors to device connections for Industrial Ethernet and all common fieldbus types.
Our selection of Ethernet cables comprises M12 and RJ45 components for support of EtherNet/IP and PROFINET applications. Due to their PUR sheathings, these assembled or field-attachable data connectors feature a high mechanical strength for use under harsh ambient conditions. Additionally, their electromagnetic compatibility and vibration-proof latching ensures safe operation at all times.
For setup of fieldbus networks based on PROFIBUS, CANopen, or DeviceNet, we offer robust M12 connectors. Additionally, we also provide you with T- and Y-splitters for passive connections. Integrated terminators for bus connections are available in M12 and SUB-D design.
