Front adapters for error-free connection of Simatic S7-1500 modules are now available in the Interface system cabling range from Phoenix Contact.
Wiring is reduced to a few easy steps, as the front adapters are simply swivelled into the digital or analogue I/O cards and connected to the Varioface termination boards via pre-assembled system cables.
They are available as passive components with various connection technologies including knife disconnection. The active components with relays and opto-couplers switch loads of up to 250V AC/10A or handle inrush currents of up to 130A, which is particularly suitable for lamps and capacitive loads.
Thanks to the Varioface products, the I/O signals of S7-1500 modules can be easily amplified or conditioned without much effort, while also saving space. The connection between the controller and termination board is fast, safe, and guaranteed to be error-free, thanks to the tested components.
