Exclusive Innovation: ESTOP Distribution or PT100 3 or 4 Cabling Junction Box
RICHMOND (July 3, 2002) - Weidmuller is introducing the SAI 1:1 (patent pending), a highly flexible junction box which solves emergency stop loop wiring problems or for PT100 3 or 4 cable initiators. The SAI 1:1 (One to One) contains the same great modular features of the standard Weidmuller SAI passive modules. In typical e-stop wiring with door guards or safety switches, for example, it is necessary to isolate the contact inputs from the DC Control circuit via a safety relay, it becomes necessary to integrate more than 2 "floating" contacts in an M12 connector. The SAI 1:1 is a four-port junction box with standard screw-type M12 connectors with 5 floating contacts. Each connector pin is rated for a generous 2A per contact and a total current of 8A. It is supplied with a field attachable hood with a protective cable glands for control cabinet wiring with screw
clamps that can be custom configured to fit your application. And if your application requires isolated supplies, the SAI comes complete with color-coded jumpers.
The system provides full protection under IP 68 or NEMA 6p for harsh industrial environments. Cables and cordsets are available, as well as field attachable plugs and sockets for making low cost quick connections. Professional printed marking using standard size marking tags adds a professional touch for a crisp finished product. The product lists for $75.00, and is the only product of its kind in the industry.
