Phoenix Contact has added Speedcon, quick-locking, M12 connection-system technology to its line of sensor/actuator boxes (SACBs).

A simple “half turn” makes a secure, watertight and vibration-proof connection between cordsets and devices, reducing installation time by 90%. Compatible with all standard M12-connectors on the market, Speedcon requires no special adapters, making it backward and forward compatible.

The new SACBs integrate a metal threaded slot and are potted to help with the IP65/67 rating for harsh industrial environments. Boxes are available with 4, 6, or 8 slots and with or without LEDs, providing multiple design options. Additional features include preassembled master cables and pluggable screw connections.
