That is why Weidmuller is well known for delivering promptly with quick turnaround times despite our wide variety of available options. We can also develop and produce solutions for specific customer requirements. We regularly produce cables, for example, with customer specific labels and logos.

But naturally it is the cost of this increased flexibility that is the decisive factor. In order to meet your cost requirements, an additional production line has been specially designed for keeping costs down. The line produces top selling products that are marketed for their economical cost factors.

Weidmuller PROFIBUS-DP FBCon T-Distributor Distributor

Fieldbus, Data Cables & Accessories

The bus system lies at the heart of automation engineering. High quality products are essential here if you hope to achieve long term, smooth functionality. It's not only the slaves and controllers that play a significant role; the type of cables and connection mechanisms in use are also very important. The Weidmuller bus cables are the perfect solution here. The products which we manufacture ourselves (used, for example, in the Profibus, industrial Ethernet and CANopen/DeviceNet sectors) have a 360 degree shielding within the moulding. This provides effective protection for signal and data transmission.

Delivery times are another decisive factor. Our special production strategy allows us to quickly manufacture parts that are customised to a specific order. We have a dedicated department that is focussed on this strategy and located near the Detmold central warehouse in order to keep delivery times to a minimum.

Weidmuller M8 & M12 Customisable Connectors Distributors

Weidmuller SAI Active Universal Compact Basic Versions of the Remote I/O System with IP67 Protection Distributor

SAI Active IP67 Remote I/O System

The SAI Active Remote I/O system features IP67 protection. It provides users with the opportunity to add input and/or output units to the process in a decentralised manner directly on location. The wiring is uncomplicated with pre-assembled cables and standardised M8 and M12 connectors. This simplifies the installation process and reduces the risk of cabling errors. There is no need for complex parallel wiring of the sensors and actuators. Nor do you need to merge the cables together at a central location or electrical cabinet. The IP67 modules have a sturdy construction and provide excellent reliability under adverse conditions involving dust, moisture, acids, high temperatures or vibrations.

Weidmuller JACKPAC Switching Applifiers Distributors


By introducing JACKPAC, the new M12 Signal Box with the high IP67 ingress protection. Weidmuller can now provide a modular and versatile concept that makes it possible to condition signals in an industrial environment. Requiring no additional enclosure, these modules can be installed directly on the machine, in the production plant, conveyor system or within a process.

The M12 connector, which is standardised all over the world, makes it possible to integrate the JACKPAC at any point in the sensor-actuator cabling. The fixed pin assignment means it is easy to install and is protected against polarity reversal. This versatility really comes into its own when an installation needs to be altered or modernised, simply because no additional enclosures or cabling are required.

Weidmuller SAI-M SAI Distributor with Plug in Connection Hood Distributor

Passive Distributors

SAI Passive products are built with premium materials using the highest quality production methods. The fully encapsulated distributors are designed to meet harsh industrial requirements. Naturally they have also been designed so that they are easy to handle. The self assembled connectors in the hooded version, for example, are joined into a single part so that the entire block is available for the connection. This is a unique solution for distributors that has no equal anywhere. Nothing can break off, get mixed up or wired up incorrectly.

The distributors are equipped by default with threaded metal rings. This ensures a very reliable screw-on connection. The nut is completely threaded without any interruptions. This eliminates the possibility of it getting stuck or jammed. The IDC versions are especially noteworthy. Sensor cables of the proper lengths can be connected directly here.

Weidmuller M23 Connectors & Cables Distributors

M23 Connectors & Cables

The M23 connectors are mainly used for integrating electrical drives and servo motors into industrial automation facilities. The M23 designation is based on the thread diameter of the connector. With their wide variety of inserts and housings, these connector are equally suited for applications involving signal or power transmission.

Applications set in harsh industrial environments place strict requirements on the connector. Much is demanded of the housing, the inner insert and the connector contact as well. Thermal loads, physical loads, and loads from the transmitted electrical power are commonplace. M23 connectors are capable of carrying a load of up to 250/630 V at 9/30 A.

Weidmuller Sensor Actuator Interface Tools & Markers Distributor

Tools & Markers

Weidmuller offers a wide range of tools and accessories for sensor-actuator cabling.

The Screwty is a state of the art tool that features a unique, patented retention method. The adjustable torque ensures that the connectors have actually been sealed tightly. The Screwty attachment for M23 is also very important. The sealing method for the M8 and M12 connectors is comparable to the M23. The fact that the Screwty attachment slips back is also a major advantage of this system. This means that it does not have to be re-applied, as would be the case when using an open ended wrench. There is also no risk that the screw can loosen when you turn the tool the wrong way since the Screwty is only capable of exerting force in one direction.

Whether Diffuse Sensing with background suppression (LHR), through-beam (LLR) detection, or polarized retro-reflective (LRR) sensing is chosen, accurate readings are made with C-12 sensors because of the intensity of the LED emissions. The diffuse (LHR) sensors accurately discern the target from other background objects. The through-beam (LLR) utilizes an emitter and a receiver. The retro-reflective (LRR) devices come with a variety of compatible
