Flexible connection

The flexible connection of the cabling system consists of a S7-1500 front connector which has the 20 or 40 single wires already in place and which directly connects the SIMATIC with the sensors and actuators inside the control cabinet. With a cross-section of 0.5 square mm, the single wires are also suitable for higher currents and are available in different lengths and versions: as H05V-K wires (PVC insulation), H05Z-K (halogen-free insulation) or with UL/CSA certified wires. The halogen-free version develops low smoke gas density in case of a fire and is therefore particularly suited for use inside buildings.

And it's that easy!

The benefits at a glance:

  • Guaranteed system conformity with SIMATIC S7-1500 and ET 200 MP

  • Easy connection of sensors and actuators in the control cabinet

  • Reduced commissioning times, because the front connector is already wired

  • 0.5 mm 2 wire cross sections for higher currents

  • UL and CSA certified single wires for the U.S. market

  • Halogen-free versions for use in building automation
