Chicago, Ill. - Phoenix Contact introduced many new products at the recent National Manufacturing Week Industrial Automation show.

Variosub RJ-45/IP67 connector brings industrial IP67 sealing to Ethernet Cat 5 RJ45 connections. The housing is made from an impact- and temperature-resistant, UV-stable polyamide, is resistant to chemicals, oils, and greases, and is built to withstand impacts and vibration. No tools are required to assemble the housing to the connector.

A universal strain gage/load cell signal conditioner, MCR-Strain Gage, is said to amplify and condition all varieties of strain gage and load cell sensors. It includes 1,000 V three-way galvanic isolation between power supply, input, and output circuits. The module provides DIP switch selectable sensor style, filter/frequency response, and amplifier gain and supports sensors with resistances from 120 to 20,000 ohms.

Four distribution blocks have been added to the FLKM-PVB family offering spring cage terminals as an alternative to screw cage.

The company has expanded its Factory Line Ethernet installation kit to include FL-Switch, a stand-alone Ethernet/Fast Ethernet unmanaged switch. The device permits connection of up to five twisted pair segments and supports both 10 Mbs and 100 Mbs transmission rates through autonegotiation. It also provides an alarm output that can be used to externally monitor a redundant power source.
