Contrinex: Distribution Boxes Cut Time & Cost
S8 distribution box.
Old Saybrook, CT — Contrinex is offering distribution systems that provide a complete solution with a fixed, molded cable output, or can be used as pluggable elements. They are available in 4-way to 10-way version for S8 or S12 connectors. The product line also includes the high-quality, fully compatible quick-lock system as well as extremely rugged and tight metal connectors.

Contrinex distribution boxes are positioned close to the process, providing the wiring between sensors and control units using pluggable, pre-wired cables. They are designed for universal use in material handling, assembly and test systems, as well as robotics. LED indicators display operation and signal statuses, significantly reducing installation, start-up and maintenance costs.

The S8 distribution boxes have an extremely narrow design — only 30mm wide. Light and extremely compact, they can be used in situations where space is limited or on moving machine parts. They are fully potted and offer various mounting possibilities. The S8 range includes 4-, 6-, 8- and 10-way distributors with 3-pole sockets. They are available as a complete solution with an encapsulated cable or as components with a click closure hood that can be fitted without tools.

The S12 distribution boxes are available in an assortment of 4- and 8-way versions specially suited for installation in conveyor and assembly applications, in testing systems and robotics. The very compact design and the standard 3-hole attachment method allow a simplified mounting in limited space situations or when dealing with moving machine parts. Various types of outlets enable selecting the best connection setup for each control system. The model with a connection cap is well adapted for complex installations where the cable length can be an issue.
