Use in welding applications

  • Weld-slag resistant PUR cable with drag chain suitability
  • Nut with special weld-slag resistant coating
  • Mechanical end stop to protect the O-ring from destruction
  • Nut secured against shock and vibration due to saw tooth contoured vibration protection
  • LEDs clearly visible even in cases of high light exposure

Use in welding applications

ifm's ecolink series comprises sockets, cable plugs and jumper cables as M8 and M12 versions.
Even when fastened by hand, a perfect lasting seal of sensor, actuator and splitter connections is guaranteed. The integrated end stop protects the O-ring against destruction caused by over-tightening the nut. Even in harsh industrial environments, the connectors are protected against unintended loosening by a special vibration protection. Some types are fitted with highly visible LEDs for operation and switching status indication.
The products of the ecolink EVW series for use in welding applications have a special PUR-jacketed cable.
The non-stick coating of the coupling nut allows weld spatter to roll off the sensor and enables easy and quick cleaning.
