Turck announces the availability of a redesigned VB2 splitter with LED’s. The new VB2 features a translucent black overmolded design, which encapsulates the LED’s and protects them from physical damage while also complimenting visibility. The design enhancement also enables the LED’s to be visible from both sides of the splitter, allowing it to now be mounted on either side where the previous version only allowed mounting on one side for the LED’s to be visible.
This VB2 splitter is used to consolidate two separate discrete PNP device signals into a single cable and can be used in any application multiple discrete PNP signals are being used. It is an ideal solution for applications trying to use multiple sensors or send multiple signals from a confined area. The LED’s provide a visual indication of when the circuit has power applied and when discrete signals are present. The VB2 has a rating of 10-30 VDC at up to 4 amps. The new overmolded design provides the splitter with an improved ingress rating of IP68. Products that are given an IP68 rating must first pass Turck testing which requires them to be submerged at a depth of 6 feet for 24 hours.
