Junction Blocks

Universal use, even under harsh conditions

Junction blocks from Balluff connect sensors and actuators to the controller. They are especially well-suited for harsh conditions and are ideal when coolants and lubricants are used. Their fully encapsulated housing offers a high degree of protection and an outstanding resistance to shock and vibrations.

Their design makes these interfaces suitable for any equipment or machine. Metal screw inserts guarantee accurate fit of the connectors.

All junction blocks can be installed on any standard profile or base plate: Their mounting holes are placed in the center. And additional mounting holes on the side make it possible to also mount the passive interface on the side. Flexible installation assisted by highly visible LEDs.
