Siemens Introduces Quarter-Turn Quick Cable Connector

Siemens Industry, Inc., Atlanta, has introduced a new quick-connecting cable coupler that locks in with a quarter turn and protects against vibration shakeout on its Motion-Connect line of power and signal cables.

The mechanism, called Speed Connect, makes installation and changeover fast and easy, even in restricted spaces, says a Siemens news release. No tools are needed, and just a quarter turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors.

Siemens Motion-Connect cables are tested to guarantee optimum performance in any motion control system. Crane controls are among the system applications listed on Siemens’ website. The cables are fully shielded to prevent EMC noise emissions and protect the motion control system from ambient environmental noise. Motion-Connect cables are certified to CE, VDE, UL and UL/CSA standards. 

A wide range of cabling with the new Speed Connect quick release mechanism is available immediately. Watch an operational video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/darkcover09#p/u/1/wFukTgzgVPw
