How to save time and space
Published:  03 January, 2019

igus has announced  its module connect is a new kind of plug-in connector  for connecting different electric cables, fibre optic cables and pneumatic hoses and says its simple, modular design, creates a unique connect/disconnect point with a single module consisting of several different connector inserts. Used as part of a readychain, it connects several cables in the smallest of installation spaces, in one go.

In the video you can see that the housings can then be joined together to create an almost unlimited number of module variations.

igus says the low profile saves space, achieves a high contact density and another advantage is that the integrated honeycomb strain relief system from igus works alongside to ensure secure cable fixation.

Module connect can be adapted to fit any e-chain no matter what the application, whether it’s at the fixed end or moving end of an e-chain, between two e-chains or for routing cables into terminal boxes or switch cabinets.
