Courtesy: Phoenix ContactPhoenix Contact's M12 power distribution boxes are designed for field-based power supply voltages of 24 V. These distribution boxes, in combination with standard M12 power cables of 4x10 AWG conductors, are designed to eliminate voltage drop that occurs across long cable runs. The distributor has four T-coded M12 receptacles with a current load of up to 10 A per channel. Each of the eight channels is equipped with a plug-in fuse. Devices are connected directly via T-coded M12 power cables. Power to the distributor box is supplied via a Heavycon Compact plug-connector. LEDs make it easy to check the status of the input and output sides. An M12 diagnostics port, which can be connected to the controller in the control cabinet, provides further evaluation data. Accessories such as factory molded cables, field-attachable connectors, and Y-distributors, are designed to ensure reliable power distribution in the field.
