Cumming, GA – AutomationDirect introduces Zip-Port™ multiport junction blocks, that provide time, cost and space savings by allowing multiple sensors to be wired to a single block with one cable connecting to the control panel.
Zip-Port junction blocks are available in field wireable or five-meter cable versions, feature four and five-pin M12 connectors in four, six and eight-port models, and offer a choice of one or two I/O per port. The blocks provide 24 VDC and 120 VDC/AC operation in temperatures ranging from -20°C to +80°C (-4°F to +176°F) and also provide an IP67 degree of protection when all ports are either connected or covered with recommended protective caps.
The five-meter integrated cable series come with three 18-gauge wires for power connection and four to sixteen 22-gauge wires for I/O connections, depending on the number of ports. The field-wireable junction blocks allow the installer the option of using his cables of choice and only the I/O necessary. All Zip-Port models are available with or without power and signal LED indicators.
Prices for the Zip-Ports multiport junction blocks start at $39 and include two spare port caps. Additional caps can be purchased in packs of five for $2.50.
