TURCK announces the availability of its new D-Size (1 3/8 inch) powerfast ® modular wiring system, designed to handle high current applications for machine power distribution and motor control. The complete D-Size system includes 3 and 4-pin cordsets, receptacles and tees that provide up to 600 Volts and 30 Amps of power. Additional product line components include field wireables, closure caps and a tee with an integrated cable drop that eliminates two connectors. With the use of standard and reducer tees, it is now possible to use a quick disconnect system to distribute power to multiple field devices along one main trunk cable, resulting in reduced costs associated with material and labor.
The D-size powerfast system may be used in place of traditional conduit installations and is compliant with NFPA 79 (National Fire Protection Association Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery) standards. This scalable, modular wiring system is easy to change, modify and maintain, and may eliminate the need for conduit and raceways. The cordsets are available with exposed run PVC flexlife ® cable in 10, 12 or 14 AWG wires. All connectors carry IEC IP67, 68 and 69k environmental protection ratings, along with NEMA 1, 3, 4 and 6P protection.
The D-Size powerfast line offers male and female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Nickel plated brass, stainless steel or clear anodized aluminum coupling nuts and encapsulated mating receptacles, in both 1/2”-14 NPT and 3/4”-14 NPT mounting threads, are also available.
TURCK’s complete powerfast product line includes A-Size (7/8 inch), M16, M23 and M40 cordsets, receptacles and tees ranging from 15-40 Amps to meet power distribution needs in most industrial applications.
