Irving, Tex.— The new Interfast product line from Entrelec is a family of prewired cables and connectors that simplfies interconnecting field wiring to PLCs. Individual wires are traditionally hand-connected, point by point from the PLC to the field terminal block or interface board. Using standard prewired and pretested cables and connectors, Interfast can increase wiring speed up to 20 times, cut costs, and reduce errors. Interfast supports PLC digital and analog signals from Siemens, Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, AEG, Modicon, Telemecanique, and Cegelec. The product line comes in three solutions, Interfast 1, 2, and 3, for different PLCs and applications, but for all three the usual field screw terminal is replaced by a connector interface board or terminal blocks that accept Entrelec's Omniconnect plugs. These allow the addition of LEDs, relays, optocouplers, test points, or special components. Interfast also fits virtually all systems applications, such as I/O voltages of 24, 48, 115, and 230 V, and output currents from 0.5 to 2 A and up to 5 A using relay or triac output cards.
