Type A Cordsets Meet Fieldbus Specs

The 0.875-in, MINI SAC cordsets debut as the first connectorized cables to receive official compliance registration in accordance with the Fieldbus Foundation’s FF-844 requirements for H1 Type A cable. The Type A, over-molded cordset for H1 physical media is constructed of instrumentation tray cable and power-limited tray cable. Under the National Electric Code, this cable is suitable for use as open wiring without a metallic sheath or armor between the cable tray and equipment for distances up to 15m. The company also offers two other connectors for Fieldbus applications: a junction tee that extends connection from a device to the main trunk line and a four-position male terminator that attaches to the end of each segment along the trunk. All three connectors feature stainless steel coupling nuts and knurled screws, meet IP67 requirements, and are sunlight-resistant. They also meet IEC and ISA standards for H1 physical layer.
