Fast Delivery of I/O and Data Cordsets

Phoenix Contact USA

Phoenix Contact’s expanded production line and service model lead to shorter delivery times

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - Phoenix Contact introduces a new line of I/O and data cordsets designed specifically for the North American market. Thanks to a new production line and service model at its U.S. facility, the company manufactures cordsets for the North American market within five business days on I/O and data cordsetsmore than 500 pigtail and extension cable configurations.

Most are designed and manufactured at Phoenix Contact’s U.S. headquarters in Lower Swatara Township, Pa., just outside Harrisburg. A complete on-site test qualification lab means that Phoenix Contact can locally qualify new cable materials for use with overmolded cordsets. The local production leads to a faster turnaround time for customers.

The “Speedy TranSACtion” program encompasses more than 350 standard cordset lengths that are factory-stocked in the United States. In addition, nearly 150 customizable cordsets are available through Phoenix Contact’s “CMAT” service.

The products include M12 and M8 standard-length and customizable cordsets, built with the look and feel common in North America. The M12 and M8 standard cabling, available in yellow PVC cable, are sunlight-resistant and rated for -30 to 105 degrees Celsius. The three-, four-, and five-position M12 cable assemblies meet ITC/PLTC rating, which allows installation in industrial cable trays/raceways in accordance with National Electrical Code (NEC) Articles 725/727.

Cordsets with a single connector head, often referred to as pigtails, are available in standard lengths of 2, 5 and 10 meters. Those with two connector heads, referred to as extension cables, come in 0.5 and 1.5 meter standard lengths. The range adds M12 SPEEDCON, shielded cordsets, eight-position M12, Ethernet and DeviceNet to the local production facility.
