KEC 033 Profibus connectorAs a UK sales partner of Provertha Connectors, KEC, the Aldermaston-based EMC interconnect specialist, now supplies the complete range of Provertha ‘plug and play’ bus connector products for Profibus networks that meets the demands of modern field-bus connections.

Ideal for a broad range of applications in industrial communication and automation markets, the Profibus connectors offer simple, fail-safe connection and fault-free data transmission thus minimising costs due to production downtime.

The extensive range provides approved function and security with minimum signal impact and modification for up to a maximum of 40 Profibus participants.  The I-Net Profibus connectors are adjusted for Profibus DP (decentralised peripherals) and thereby prevent reflections.

The connectors have zinc die-castings that provide high levels of EMC, are available in axial, 90° and angled 55° versions and have a solid switch lever that can be operated externally to activate the bus termination.

Versions are offered with either internal or external cable clamping systems or a flange and ferrule system for full 360° screening and rugged applications subject to high levels of torsion and vibration.
