Now available in Europe through TTI, Inc., a world leading specialist distributor of electronic components, are OMNIMATE hybrid connectors from Weidmüller. The components replace three individual components and reduce three separate operations to one – with the signal contacts integrated directly in the power connector, the pluggable cable shielding and the one-handed safety lock. Hybrid cables provide the connection between frequency convertors or servo controllers and the motor itself. Previously, to connect the cable, three plug-in connectors were required: a power connector for the motor connection, a signal connector for capturing the motor feedback and shielding to protect data traffic from electromagnetic disturbance.
OMNIMATE hybrid connectors combine all three connectors in an application-specific way resulting in an innovative and complete solution. The products enable simultaneous, safe and “blind“ connection of power and signal cabling as well as the shielding. Examples are the pluggable shielding or one-handed safety interlock with automatic snapping into place. The integration of these functions enables intuitive and tool-free operation, as well as permanent secure contact, even under difficult installation conditions. The hybrid connectors fulfil touch-safe protection according to IEC (UL) 61800-5-1 of 3 or 5.5 mm. The devices are available as an option with openable and adjustable “pushers” and contact points.
