Junction blocks

Universal use, even under harsh conditions

Passive interfaces from Balluff connect sensors and actuators to the controller. They are especially well-suited for harsh conditions and are ideal if refrigerants and lubricants are employed. The fully encapsulated housing offers a high degree of protection and an outstanding resistance to shock and vibrations.

Thanks to their design, our junction blocks are the best fit in all systems and machines. The fitting precision of the plug connectors is guaranteed by the metallic screw inserts.

The splitters can flexibly be mounted on all standard profiles and baseplates: The mounting holes are placed in the center. Additional mounting holes on the side make it possible to also mount the passive interface on the side. Flexible mounting is supported by highly visible LEDs.
