Aw 1413 1009 Turck Pr3

JBBS junction bricks simplify the connection of multiple field devices and can be mounted directly on the machine in hazardous environments, with no enclosure required.

These bricks include options with 4, 6 or 8 short-circuit protected ports that can be shut off via integrated dip switches located under the cover of the station. This design allows users to service the device while maintaining normal operating conditions in the hazardous area, minimizing downtime.

The IP69K-rated JBBS junction bricks are available with M12 or 7/8-16UN connectors in stainless steel or nickel-plated brass.
