Exclusive: I/O modules with pluggable wiring
KS Series bus-terminal I/O system from Beckhoff Automation now includes pluggable connections.
Pluggable connections in the KS Series bus-terminal I/O modules from Beckhoff Automation add flexibility and simplify installation.
KS Series bus-terminal I/O system from Beckhoff Automation now includes pluggable connections. Equipped with the same wiring procedure as the KL line, the KS Series gives end-users, system integrators, and OEMs a choice of a one-piece I/O module with integrated terminals or a two-piece design with removable connectors for maximum installation and maintenance flexibility.
KS Series bus-terminals allow wiring to be removed as a plug connector from the I/O housing face without tools. Connector is removed from the bus terminal assembly by pressing an unlocking tab. New I/O component is then inserted and the connector re-plugged in with the wiring. Procedure is designed to minimize installation time and the risk of wiring errors.
New connector adds about 3 mm to the housing width; bus terminal dimensions are only slightly changed from previous versions. Maximum bus terminal height is unchanged. KS and KL Series bus terminals can be mixed and matched on the same I/O node without restriction.
