Connectivity is an essential part of your automation solution that ties everything together. TURCK’s solution provides a solid foundation for your application with a high standard for quality and a fast and flexible approach, allowing you to make the right connections. TURCK products have some of the highest tolerances to environmental extremes on the market. These parts are able to withstand the spraying, cleaning and humid or moist environments often found in food and beverage applications.
TURCK’s broad line of ReelfastTM Bulk Cable leads the industry in offerings, approvals and durability. Agency approvals suited to the application including UL, CSA, MSHA, IEEE, IEC, ABS and more. Compliant with NEC, CEC and other governing bodies. Bulk cable is sold per meter, no minimum or maximum, allowing you to order the exact amount you need with quick delivery.
TURCK additional components to fulfill your connectivity needs. TURCK offers a large selection of accessories for operation, mounting and protection of connectivity products.
Single and dual ended cordsets and panel mount receptacles for carrying power and/or signal to your components and processes. TURCK shielded cordsets with the shield tied to the coupling nut offer complete shielding for the entire length of the cordset. A metal sleeve inside the molded body connects the braid/foil shield of the cable to the metal coupling nut with no loss of shielding potential. TURCK armored cordsets are the ultimate in shielded connectors. A TURCK patented process allows the interlocked aluminum armor to be connected directly to the coupling nut offering the same protection as running conductors inside metal conduit.
A full selection of TURCK field wireable connectors in a variety of shapes and sizes to solve those applications where a pre-molded cordset is not readily available. Standard features of TURCK connectors are coupling nuts constructed of nickel plated brass, stainless steel or nylon. Mating pins and sockets are gold plated brass. Injection molded connector bodies are made of polyurethane (PUR) and injection molded to the cable jacket to provide strain relief and seal connections from hazardous environments. In terms of performance, the pin and sleeve ratings for the minifast, eurofast and picofast are 9, 4 and 1.5 Amps respectively.
The inductive coupler of the NIC series is designed for contactless bidirectional transmission of power and data. The devices consist of two components, the primary part NICP and the secondary part NICS. The primary part supplies the secondary part with power via the air interface. In return the secondary part provides data to the connected sensors and actuators.
TURCK junction boxes distribute power or consolidate signals from multiple sources to a single cable. TURCK Junctions are passive hubs. Some have short-circuit protection and voltage monitoring. Short-circuit protects the power on the trunk and allows use in Class 1, Div 2 locations. Junctions are made from two different materials; die-cast aluminum with a powder coated enamel finish or polyurethane PVC overmold. Both housings are available with either Nickel Plated brass or 316 stainless steel connectors. Junctions are rated NEMA 1, 3, 4, 4X, 12, 13 and IEC IP 67. These ratings are conditional, requiring a cordset or cap to be installed on all ports. Although the aluminum housing is rated 4X (salt-water spray test) TURCK highly recommends the polyurethane or fiberglass housing for aggressive environments.
TURCK splitters consolidate signals from two to four sources to a single cable. TURCK splitters can be used on photoelectric controls, power distribution, cylinders and other dual-Input applications. Tough TPU body resists oil and abrasion. Their compact size saves space. Eurofast Connection features Anti-vibration Coupling Nut (main leg only).
