Turck has developed a new connectivity solution that is compatible with the control power connection system utilized with Rockwell ArmorStart distributed motor starters. Turck’s Minifast control power offering gives an alternative solution to have drop in replacements that tap directly into the existing E-stop control wiring circuits.
Turck’s solution uses a 5-pin connector with the same pinout as a standard 6-pin Minifast connector. The connector has the pin #4 location on the connector plugged, which ensures it cannot mate with either a standard 5-pin or 6-pin Minifast connector. This prevents any chance of mis-wiring to any other existing connectors in the system and provides a trusted alternative 5-wire solution with the added benefit of quick delivery lead times.
“We had requests from our customers for an alternative connectivity solution that would work in these applications,” said Jay Bartsias, Senior Product Manager for Turck. “We were able to answer their needs by utilizing our existing Minifast components while providing a solution that fits seamlessly into the existing systems.”
The new Minifast product provides the same trusted features as Turck’s standard Minifast offering, including NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P and IEC IP67.
