OMNIMATE hybrid connectors available in EU

OMNIMATE hybrid connectors from Weidmüller are now available in Europe.

Previously, to connect the cable, three plug-in connectors were required: a power connector for the motor connection, a signal connector for capturing the motor feedback, and shielding to protect data traffic from electromagnetic disturbance. The OMNIMATE components replace three individual components and reduce three separate operations into one - with the signal contacts integrated directly in the power connector, the pluggable cable shielding and the one-handed safety lock.

The products enable simultaneous, safe and “blind” connection of power and signal cabling as well as the shielding, according to Weidmüller. The integration of the functions enables intuitive and tool-free operation, as well as permanent secure contact, even under difficult installation conditions.

The hybrid connectors fulfil touch-safe protection according to IEC (UL) 61800-5-1 of 3 or 5.5 mm. The devices are available as an option with openable and adjustable "pushers" and contact points.
