Electric drive systems and automation solutions can be interconnected with a one-cable solution from Intercontec, with power ranging up to 44 KW. Rather than two separate cables for power and signal + communication, it is possible to combine both into a one cable-connector-unit using the new Series 740 htec® hybrid connector system, that is now available in addition to the smaller Series 723 htec® hybrid connectors Series. This innovative connector utilizes the speedtec® quick connection system and accommodates power conductors up to 6 AWG.
The tri-functionality of power, signal, and communication in one circular connector housing can be configured individually. In addition to different pin layouts and codings, the user can choose from a number of separately shielded Ethernet Elements with one, two, or three wire pairs. Where space is tight, resolver and fieldbus connectors can be eliminated completely, as the Series 740 htec® combines three connectors into one.
The advantages are clear: besides saving costs for cable and connectors it is possible to reduce the space requirements on the machine and also the control cabinets. Cabling, maintenance, and cleaning become a lot easier with the htec® connector. The htec® connectors are available with a traditional metal housing or a manipulation-proof plastic coat over the metal housing.
