MOTION CONTROL: TURCK announced the 1 inch -16UN and 1-1/8 inch-16UN minifast® explosion-proof feed-through receptacles, which install directly into standard 3/4-inch conduit entries without requiring additional conduit or poured seals. These quick-disconnect B-size (1 inch) and C-size (1-1/8 inch) receptacles expedite installation while maintaining the explosion-proof ratings of instrument housings and explosion-proof enclosures in Class I, Division 2 hazardous areas.
Designed with high quality 316 stainless steel housings, these receptacles are fully potted and withstand 6,000 psi of pressure. To reduce wiring errors, the 7 and 8-pole B-size and 9, 10 and 12-pole C-size connectors are specially keyed in a way that ensures the connectors cannot be improperly mated. The receptacles’ connectors are compatible with TURCK’s FM approved cordsets and provide NEMA 1, 3, 4 and 6P, as well as IEC IP68 protection against liquid ingress when a mating connector is attached.
