New ecolink cables for field mounted sensors

ifm electronic is now offering a range of ecolink cables for use with field-mounted sensors, said to be suitable for use in a wide range of applications, including those in hygienic and wet areas

The new cables are claimed to reduce wiring time for sensors and also provide long lasting functionality. Key features of the cables in ifm's new ecolink range include halogen and silicone-free construction, together with integrated profiled sealing rings that provide effective protection against moisture ingress and a special sawtooth contour screw thread for the retaining nuts. The latter, says ifm, makes them resistant to the effects of vibration. Additionally, the retaining nuts are contoured for enhanced grip and need only be tightened by hand, meaning that the cables can be quickly and conveniently installed or removed without the use of tools.

Ecolink cables are available in M8/M12 versions with an M8 connector at one end and an M12 connector at the other. These are offered in lengths from 0.3 m up to 5 m. Also available are versions with M8 connectors at both ends, which are offered in lengths from 0.3 m up to 25 m.  Both versions can be supplied with straight or right-angle connectors and, in selected configurations, with an integral LED indicator.

Standard ecolink cables are suitable for use at up to 50 V AC or 60 V DC, while types with an LED indicator have an operating voltage range of 10 to 36 V DC. The nominal current rating for all types is 3 A.
