Profibus connectors from Quadrant ensure simple interconnect and high reliability

As a stocking distributor for Provertha, the German manufacturer of D-sub connectors, hoods and associated accessories, Quadrant Connections now stocks the Provertha ‘plug and play’ Profibus connector range that meets the demands of modern field-bus connections to be easy to implement and ultra-reliable.

Ideal for a broad range of applications in industrial communication and automation markets the Profibus connectors with D-sub interfaces offer an easy, fail-safe connection and fault-free data transmission to minimise any damaging costs due to production downtime.

The full-metal die-cast hood, which is available in standard 90°, compact 90°, axial 180° or special 35° cable exits, ensures highly effective shielding and the robust design withstands typical harsh industrial environments.  The user simply connects to the field bus interface on the device and plugs into the Profibus M12 connectors that come with standard B-coding polarisation, and the Profibus connection will work.  With integrated inductances these connectors fulfil the Profibus specification of data rates up to 12Mbit/s.

The connector range is extremely versatile as they are available with or without a PG interface, with a second D-sub for programming or servicing purposes and the cable can be terminated using cable clamp, crimp flange or M12 plug and play.
