CONEC Hybrid Connector series B12, B17, B23, B40


For conventional cabling of electric motors, servo drives or power supply units or linear units/drives, a great deal of wiring work is required. Separate lines for power and data/ signal transmission are used for different, separate tasks.

This wiring concept is not only expensive, but also needs a lot of construction space and is expensive to install and maintain. Due to the constantly increasing cost pressure and the miniaturization of end devices, in combination with an increasing data volume and high transmission speeds, new solutions for more efficiency in the field of wiring are in demand.

Wiring of the power supply and the control of motors and servo drives is exemplary. Until now the conventional approach, each individual motor is wired separately and elaborately to the control cabinet, with the decentralised approach, many consumers are linked with standard connecting cables via a “daisy chain”.

With the newly developed CONEC Hybrid connector series (B12, B17, B23, B40), a compact hybrid connector system has been developed which combines and transmits the power supply and data transfer to CAT5 via a specially developed hybrid cable. This one-cable technique corresponds to modern connection and interface wiring technology and saves space, time and costs.

With the angled B23 hybrid receptacle, it is possible to equip servo drives with an output of more than 20 kW with a one-cable solution. By turning the cable outlet in 18 steps, the receptacle can be adjusted to the respective installation situation in the machine and allows a stress-free connection of the cable regardless of the assembly situation.

Locking of mated connector is secured with a bayonet fastener, so that a time-consuming screw connection by means of a torque wrench is no longer necessary. A quarter turn ensures a secure connection and IP67 protection class. It is important to note that the bayonet can only be locked, if the hybrid connectors are completely mated in.
