Alpha Wire Introduces Alpha Connect

AlBasic RGBpha Connect

Alpha wire has recently launched a new product line called Alpha Connect which offers high performance solutions for industrial connectivity. This new line provides end-to-end solutions for actuators and connecting sensors on the factory floor. Included in the Alpha Connect line are: M8, M12, M23, MINI and RJ45 cordsets, M8 and M12 distribution boxes, splitters, and M8, M12 and MINI field attachables and receptacles. All Alpha Connect products comply with IP65, IP67, IP68/NEMA 6P, and IP69K standards.

Easy To Use

Alpha Connect products are easy to use. LEDs in distribution boxes are an option to speed up repairs and simplify troubleshooting if there are any malfunctions. In addition, they save space and simplify wiring from sensors to the controller. These also can eliminate the need for more enclosures and some support two I/O channels. This results in an 8 port box having 16 signals.

Flexible Cordsets

Within Alpha Connect’s Flexible Cordsets there are many connector options that are used in factory floor applications, have flex life cycles or are industry standard mid-power connectors. Alpha Connect also has the option of flexible cordsets for ethernet. These cables have a two pair construction, meet Cat 5e applications to support data rates, and have the option to choose between unshielded small diameter or foil/braid shield for signal integrity.

Distribution Boxes

Distribution boxes are another component of Alpha Connect. These distribution boxes feature different components for different needs. M12 boxes feature three different housings: thermoplastic for industrial use, stainless steel housings for food/beverage and medical applications, and die-cast housings for increased ruggedness. The M8 distribution boxes also have thermoplastic housings for industrial use. The thermoplastic distribution boxes for M8 and M12 both have a flame-retardant insert.

In addition, the Alpha Connect line also features field attachable connectors, receptacle connectors, and splitters.
