PLUSCON Field | Sensor/actuator cabling


A one-stop-shop for the entire range of solutions for field installation. 

In distributed connection methods, passive distributor systems connect the peripheral devices and the PLC controller. Phoenix Contact offers the most comprehensive range of sensor/actuator cabling on the market. Passive M5, M8 and M12 cabling, complete with distributor boxes, cables and connectors for assembly, is available from stock as standard. The ½" and 7/8" range for the North American market is available in the E-Shop.


Sensor/actuator cables

Phoenix Contact offers, not only for the machine and system engineering field, assembled M5, M8 and M12 sensor/actuator cables in 3 to 17-pos. versions depending on the design. A rugged, halogen-free PUR cable is used as a standard cable. Various other cables are available for your specific applications. For especially harsh requirements and increased EMC capability, these cables are also available in a shielded version. In addition to the standard M12 product range, the 100% compatible SPEEDCON quick locking system is also available. This allows assembly time to be reduced by up to 90%.

Sensor/actuator boxes

Phoenix Contact has replaced expensive parallel wiring in the field with a flexible and cost-effective cabling system compliant with the IP65/IP67/IP69k degree of protection. Components like the sensor/actuator boxes contribute to a great extent in reducing error sources and installation costs. A master cable is used to connect the control unit to the sensor/actuator box installed in the field. Sensors and actuators are then connected to the box in the field using standardized sensor/actuator cables and thus bundled decentrally. Sensor/actuator boxes are available with 4, 6,8,10 slots. In case if a double-occupied version with 8 slots, up to 16 sensors or actuators can be connected to the control system.

Sensor/actuator connectors for assembly

In mechanical engineering for small lots or special purposes, practical, economical and flexible solutions are needed for quick wiring. The user prefers components that allow different cables to be connected quickly and without error. This is achieved with M12/M8 circular connectors as a straight and angled version. Flush-type connectors in sizes M12/M8 and M5 are available for the device-side connection. Versions with punched individual wires or solder contacts as well as M12 THR contact carriers for machine-capable processing are available. All connectors offer a consistently good signal transmission and, when plugged in, the high IP67 degree of protection, even under harsh ambient conditions.

Sensor/actuator cabling for the food and beverages industry  

Phoenix Contact also offers a universal range of sensor/actuator cabling for the food and beverage industry. Hygienic safety is indispensable in the food and beverage industry. High-quality high-grade steel is used to rule out all risks. Smooth surfaces do not offer a foothold and breeding ground to micro-organisms. All metallic components are made from high-grade steel 1.4404 in order to fulfill these requirements. Plastics used must be toxicologically harmless, they should not migrate and change the appearance and taste of food stuffs. Plastics used (PVC cables and handle materials) are listed in American FDA Guidelines (Food and Drug Administration). All articles are compliant with the IP69K IP degree of protection.
