PROVERTHA is expanding its comprehensive Profibus bus connector portfolio with variants especially developed for the usage with Siemens S7 PLCs. The new Profibus Smart 7 bus connectors with special form factor are ideal for the Siemens PLC control units S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500.
Within the Profibus Smart 7 products PROVERTHA offers Plug&Play M12 variants as 100% tested solutions for fast deployment. In addition variants with internal cable clamp (IK) are available. The Plug & Play M12 variants provide function and failure safe connections with secure shielding and enable a reliable and safe data transfer. The assembly time takes only a few seconds. The space saving form factor with optimized assembly length ensures an easy and comfortable cable connection to the PLC units.
The product variants with internal cable clamp (IK) provide easy and comfortable Profibus connections in the field. In addition bus connectors with external cable clamp are available to connect special cables with diameters up to 10 mm (14 mm on request).
Additional variants include 360 degree EMI/RFI shielded crimp flange / crimp sleeve bus connectors. These enable deployment in railway, industrial and other harsh environments. The crimp flange / crimp sleeve system based on a hexagonal crimp also provides functional safety in applications with high requirements regarding cable strain relief and shielding. In configurations with crimp flange and crimp sleeve, the hexagonal crimp with its non-detachable crimp sleeve acts as sort of a seal, because the assembled bus connector cannot be modified without damage.
