Use in wet areas and in the food industry

ifm's ecolink series comprises sockets, cable plugs, jumper cables and splitter boxes in M8 and M12 design. The range is complemented by wirable sockets and plugs.
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.
Their high-grade stainless steel nut and food-grade sealing materials qualify the ecolink EVT series for use in hygienic and wet areas. The products are resistant to frequent high-pressure cleaning with aggressive cleaning agents. Thanks to their wide temperature range and their insensitivity to fast temperature changes they are particularly suited for use in the food and beverage industry.
