Overmolded Valve Plug Cordsets for Harsh Environments

TURCK 5/24/2013

Valve Plug CordsetsTurck introduces Overmolded Valve Plug Cordsets. The overmolded face eliminates the need for an additional sealing gasket ensuring optimal performance in harsh environments. Featuring a translucent molding material with embedded, bright LED's, these cordsets provide superior visibility for power indication from any angle with black, grey, yellow and clear coloring options to accommodate diverse applications.

Turck's unique overmolded design offers a full cordset alternative to traditional field wireable connectors, which require assembling and hand wiring before they can be used. This not only increases the chances of mis-wiring, but also incurs high labor costs. TURCK overmolded valve cordsets provide a completely assembled solution that is 100% factory tested and ready to use for fast, easy implementation.

Overmolded valve plug cordsets conform to the EN 17 5301-803 standard (replacing DIN 43650) for electrical connectors, which service hydraulic and pneumatic solenoid valves as well as pressure sensors. Solenoid valves control the flow of gas or liquid in cylinders, fluid power motors or larger industrial valves and are ideal for a variety of industries, including food and beverage, oil and gas refineries, water treatment facilities, chemical and petro-chemical and pharmaceutical. These cordsets also meet NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P and IEC IP67 standards.
