As a completion to the product portfolio ERNI Electronics offers cable assemblies for the connection of sensors/ actuators or other automation systems devices such as I/O distribution boxes. The standard product range covers pre-assembled, over-moulded circular connectors of sizes M8 and M12 either as interconnection of two circular connectors or as a cord set having an open end of line. In addition, the portfolio comprises field-attachable connectors for tool-less cable termination, T-coupler, panel feed-throughs and adapter for quick and cost-efficient connection in the field.

ERNI extends the variety with different cable qualities that meet the most versatile industrial requirements and therefore are applicable for a wide range of use. PVC as a competitive and economic solution or PUR (UL/CSA approved), halogen-free and UV resistant, for highly demanding applications in drag chains and harsh environments - where operational reliability is crucial. Innovative product features like the self-securing screw locking guarantee vibration-proof and secure connection. The coupling nut additionally combines a knurled surface with a spanner flat suitable for standard wrenches. Different configurations, designs and codings are available from stock. All parts meet IP67 requirements (IEC 60529) to ensure protection against dust and water immersion.
