Connection of 24 V DC Power Supplies in Harsh Environments

Weidmuller 3/27/2018

In the automotive industry, connectors are exposed to severe conditions. This applies in particular to the cabling of industrial robots, where strong acceleration forces are generated. Therefore robust connectors that can be easily connected but still strongly fixed are required.
Weidmüller PushPull Power connectors are standardised for 24 V cablings according to the PROFINET specification. They allow the connection of conductor cross sections up to 2.5 mm² and can hold sheath diameters of 6 to 13 mm. To guarantee a fast and simple installation they are assembled of only two parts. The PushPull connectors are also equipped with a twist protection against mismatching for safe and reliable connection solutions.

Your special advantages

• Large connection area for conductors up to 2.5 mm²
• Quick assembly thanks to simple two-piece design
• Integrated smart twist protection
• Extra secure locking mechanism
• Firm fit even when subjected to strong forces, such as those generated by industrial robots
