Mounting and Wiring Accessories

July 2, 2008
Wiring, installing and assembling control and I/O systems is often expensive and time-consuming for end-users, OEMs, panel builders, system integrators and others.
The SNAP TEX family of mounting and wiring accessories was created to address these issues. The line is designed to significantly reduce the time, expense and complexity associated with field instrumentation wiring and control cabinet assembly. These mounting and wiring accessories include a variety of terminal extender cables, breakout boards, wiring harnesses, DIN-rail kits, jumper straps, rack adapters, and other components for mounting and wiring the company’s automation, control, and I/O systems. SNAP TEX cables are six feet (1.8 m) long jacketed, pre-wired cables that provide neat, bundled connections from analog and digital I/O modules to field devices, terminal strips and breakout boards. They snap neatly into the tops of I/O modules and terminate with color-coded flying leads, pre-stripped and tipped, ready for wiring. The SNAP-TEX-32 is a 32-channel breakout board with straight-through connections, designed primarily for use with the aforementioned cables and analog or digital I/O modules. The SNAP-TEX-FB16-H and SNAP-TEX-FB16-L breakout boards offer 16-channel terminations and provide a fuse and a fuse-blown indicator for each channel, and facilitate 120-240V and 12-24V respectively. With the use of an external power supply, these breakout boards also bus power to loads. The SNAP-TEX-MR10-16 and SNAP-TEX-MR10-4 breakout boards are designed for high-current output switching. These boards feature mechanical relays that switch up to 10 amps per channel, expanding the switching ability of standard SNAP I/O modules by 13 times.
