The SAI-M5 sensor-actuator integrator from Weidmuller is claimed to be the smallest passive integrator on the market, making it suitable for industrial control applications where compact size and low weight are a necessity.
Designed for 3 or 4 pole connections, with 6mm external diameter and M5 thread, it is available in 4 and 8 channel modules, and is IP67 rated.
To facilitate installation, testing and maintenance of the system, each channel is permanently numbered, with two LED indicators per channel, designated A and B. Space for personalised marking of each channel is also provided.
Weidmuller’s SAI-M5 is available as 4 and 8 channel distributors. The smallest module has fixed cable inputs, with outgoing distribution connectors of either 3 poles or 4 poles. With the M5 Connectors the overall size of these fixed input cable modules is 14mm deep by 76mm long by 20mm wide and is suitable for use with drag-chains. The fixed input cable is 10 meters in length, with other cable lengths available upon request.
There are a further two module styles available, the new 4 pole modules with M12 input connectors and the 8 pole modules with the M16 input connectors. Both these units have M5 outgoing connectors and are available in either 3 pole or 4 pole distribution connector styles. These units are 20mm deep, 116mm long and 20mm wide.
The SAI-M5 is rated to 3A (1A per contact) and 24 VDC and manufactured in rugged, impact resistant thermoplastic with a flammability class V0 (UL).
