These IP67-rated connectors are manufactured to handle high-current applications for machine power distribution, while delivering resistance to vibration commonly associated with conveyors, motors and material handling applications. A-Size powerfast connectors are available in cordsets with tray-rated, exposed run PVC flexlife® cable, which provides durability and high performance on fast-paced production lines. These cordsets are additionally offered with or without STOOW rating and feature 14 AWG wires that allow users to replace hardwiring with a robust, quick disconnect system. This design saves significant installation time and money versus traditional conduit systems. TURCK’s A-Size powerfast line offers male and female, straight connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions.
