YB2 Family Expands with Enhanced Visibility Variant

TURCK 8/25/2015

Turck announces an expansion to the YB2 line of compact disconnect splitters with LEDs. The new addition to the YB2 line features a translucent black overmolded design. This encapsulates the LEDs and protects them from physical damage while also complementing visibility. The LEDs are visible from both sides of the splitter, which allows for more flexible mounting options. The YB2 is available with an M12 (eurofast®) trunk connector and either M12 (eurofast) or M8 (picofast®) branch connectors. 

This YB2 splitter is used to consolidate two separate discrete PNP device signals into a single cable or into a multi-port junction box. It is an ideal solution for applications in the material handling, food and beverage, and automotive industries. Additionally, The YB2 is the recommended consolidation splitter for customers using Turck’s Z-style junction boxes. 

The LEDs provide a visual indication of when power is applied and when one or both discrete signals are present. Additionally, the YB2 has a rating of 10-30 VDC at up to 4 amps and provides users with an ingress rating of IP67.
