Easy and sealed servo motor connections

Easy and sealed servo motor connections Servo motors are often connected with M23 connectors - these compact connectors have become more established as standards rather than terminal boxes. They are by far the most common connection system. Murrelektronik now offers power cables and signal cables (size 1.0) in top quality. They seal tightly, resist shock and vibration, can be easily mounted and they are pre-engineered.

M23 cordsets are available with orange jackets as power cables and with a green jackets for signals. They are an established solution for connecting servo motors with a 1.0 connector size. Up until now, it was necessary to wire connector solutions for M23 applications from many individual parts. However, this solution was insufficient: many users complain about lacking seal, inadequate behavior when exposed to shock and vibration and time-consuming and inconvenient assembly.

Murrelektronik offers M8 and M12 connectors for the sensor/actuator level that solve these problems. As a world leader in connection technology, Murrelektronik is dedicated in developing and producing solutions that are of real benefit to customers. Therefore, Murrelektronik is now is delighted to present the new M23 connectors that interface between servo controllers and motors.

Cables that connect Siemens servo controllers to Siemens motors are now available from Murrelektronik. M23 connectors with different contact layouts will be available for the motor side. For the servo controller side, power cables with precise connectors for Siemens controllers and various pre-wired or open ended wires are offered; signal cables are equipped with Sub-D connectors. A large number of Drive Cliq connectors will also be available.

Murrelektronik's M23 connectors are an excellent solution for connecting servo motors to servo controllers. They ensure perfect seal: a very resistant and halogen-free PUR molding ensure sealed connections according to IP67/68. The cables are firmly connected to the connector housing which ensures maximum strain relief. The screw thread enables simple, safe and sealed assembly - carried out, of course, with the torque wrench and not with a pipe wrench. By using the torque wrench, you make sure that the connections are perfectly tightened with a pre-defined torque. Installation is simple, even in hard to reach spaces.

Shock and vibration are no longer an issue: the connectors feature an integrated anti-vibration lock. This mechanism prevents the connectors from loosening and provides permanently sealed connections. The benefit: no re-tightening and no maintenance required.
