Top connect offers innovative and efficient system cabling, replacing
time-consuming and error-prone single wiring. With the new universal connecting
cable, this system cabling is now also available for the 25 millimeter IO
modules of the Simatic S7-1500, for the Simatic S7-1200 controller, for the Simatic
ET 200SP IO system and for the Logo! logic module.
Various connection concepts possible
On the controller side of the universal connecting cable the loads are
labeled and assembled with wire-end ferrules. Terminal blocks may feature push-in,
screw or spring-type terminals. On the digital connection module side, an IDC (Insulation
Displacement Connector) ensures error-free contact. With the selection of a
corresponding connecting module, a wide range of connection concepts for digital
signals can be implemented. This includes electrical isolation or potential
equalization using coupling relays, overload and short-circuit protection using
optocoupler modules, and disconnect terminals for measuring individual signals
when commissioning or during operation.
