Sealing at the AS-Interface flat cable is another significant advantage. This is achieved by leveraging the same field-proven technology used on Pepperl+Fuchs passive splitters. The symmetric sealing contours around the gold-plated piercing pins provide a precise fit to the AS-Interface cable. The only externally exposed materials are impact resistant and chemically inert PBT and stainless steel. The sturdy mounting base attaches with just two M5 screws and further enhances the impact resistant round design.
