Quick-release Connector Mechanism

Siemens Industry, Inc. announced today the introduction of Speed Connect, a new quick release mechanism that protects against vibration shakeout on its Motion-Connect® line of power and signal cables.

Aw 853 1102 Siemens Pr

Motion-Connect cables are offered as standard on all Siemens motion control systems.

The Speed Connect release makes installation and changeover, even in very restricted space applications, fast and easy. No tools are required; just a one-quarter turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors.

All Siemens Motion-Connect cables are system-tested to guarantee optimum performance in any motion control system, whether in a Sinumerik® CNC machine tool or Simotion® general motion control application. These cables are also compatible with Sinamics® drive systems and all families of Siemens induction, direct drive and servomotors. Motion-Connect 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 immediately available. For more information, visit www.usa.siemens.com/motioncontrol.
