A connector for (almost) everything
Lapp Group at Hannover Messe 2017
Users can combine the tasks performed by various cables in a single connector and assemble modules in whatever way they please. All of this is guaranteed by a connector frame that can be equipped with both Lapp connector modules and standard modules available on the market – and assembly is far easier compared to the conventional folding and sliding frames. 2 to 36 poles, currents of up to 100 A, voltages of up to 1,000 V, Cat. 5 data transfer at 100 MHz/s – there are almost no limits to the potential combinations available to users.
The modular connector system particularly benefits customers who are developing new machinery. They can adjust the connector slightly during the development process, so they don’t have to constantly assemble new cables when changes need to be made. The online catalogue and the product finder provide user support to make sure the selection process doesn’t become an awful ordeal, and Lapp’s product and application advisors are on hand to help with trickier configurations.
These and many other innovations from Lapp will be on show at Lapp’s stand (C03) in Hall 11 at Hannover Messe.
