Ready-made cables are the right choice for fast and safe connections in machine and plant construction. Even employees without specialist training can connect ready-made cables reliably and quickly. Designs for special requirements such as robotics, food suitability, mobile equipment or heavy duty guarantee optimum data, signal and power transmission in every application. 

Turck offers connection and extension cables with numerous connector variants:

  • M5, 8mm snap-on, M8, M12, M16, M23, 7/8", Deutsch DT and SuperSeal connectors, RJ45, valve connectors and much more
  • Sensor/actuator cables
  • M12 power cables
  • Ethernet and fieldbus cables
  • Male or Female, straight or angled design
  • Unshielded or shielded variants
  • Different numbers of pins and codings
  • Customized variants

Cables for Signal Transmission

Signal cables are generally used to connect sensors and actuators. For standard applications, Turck offers the TEL product series in a PVC jacket — for more demanding applications, the TXL series made of polyurethane. It offers higher mechanical robustness and temperature resistance. Both series impress with a very high variety of variants: The cables are available with M8 or M12 connectors in different numbers of pins, jacket colors and cable lengths. For the most common types, we guarantee the shortest delivery times thanks to high stock levels. 

In addition to the two standard series, Turck also offers cables for special applications — such as signal cables in hygienic design for applications with contact to food.

Cables for Data Transmission

Data cables connect devices to fieldbus interfaces in industrial networks. For example, they connect I/O modules or gateways to a controller. Turck offers numerous data cables that comply with the standards of the respective fieldbus systems:

  • EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus-TCP, EtherCAT 
  • Modbus-RTU, RS232, RS485 
  • CAN bus
  • DeviceNet, PROFIBUS-DP
  • Foundation Fieldbus, PROFIBUS-PA

Particularly in the case of data cables, ready-made connectors avoid wiring errors during commissioning, which saves time and costs.

Shielded cables provide protection against electromagnetic interference from adjacent motors, high-voltage cables or other sources of interference.

Full compliance with PNO, ODVA and IEC standards ensure device compatibility worldwide.

Cables for Power Supply

In addition to the established Power cables with 7/8-inch connection, Turck offers a complete portfolio of M12 Power cables. These supply 16 amps, which is a major innovative step compared to the nine amps of the larger 7/8-inch cables. Because they are standardized to IEC and PNO standards, M12 Power connectors are also easier to use worldwide. They are just as robust, flexible and durable as Turck's 7/8-inch cables. In addition to the L-coded connectors for the in-house RFID interfaces, I/O modules and IP67 power supplies, Turck also offers all other common M12 codings.

Four M12 Power codings (K, L, T, S) for special DC or AC applications up to 16 A.

Fully molded connectors ensure a high degree of imperviousness according to protection classes IP65, IP67 and IP69K for decentralized power supply.

CE and PNO conformity and UL approval simplify global use.

Best Practice

Automation Solutions for Extreme Cold

Using connectivity solutions by Turck, Cirus Controls creates deicing systems that clear snow and ice from roads and lessen the environmental impact of sodium chloride.

Cirus Controls develops and produces deicing system for new snowplows or to those that are already in service. In order to connect valve banks, sensors and controls reliably, the company, based in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, decided to apply Turck's junction boxes and cordsets, which are withstanding water, ice, salt, hydraulic fluid and other materials.

Distribution Lines for Field Sprayers

Faster installation and longer service life thanks to IP69K distributor for connecting CAN valves

CAN valves often regulate the spray volume on field sprayers in order to always apply the correct amount of pesticides. Turck's pre-assembled Y cables enable these valves to be wired quickly and without errors. The fullyovermolded overmolded overmolded CAN distribution cables are resistant to aggressive spray media. Superseal connectors guarantee a reliable hold even under strong vibrations.
