LQ Mechatronik announces X-TEC 15 connector

June 27, 2014 - LQ Mechatronik announces X-TEC 15 connector for 3-phase and asynchronous motors deployed in machines and plants. The connector-and-cable system can be used, regardless of the make and manufacturer: it offers an excellent performance yet it is compact in size. It therefore offers an end-to-end solution, from the control to the motor.

Using the X-TEC 15 circular plug-in connector, motors can be retrofitted quickly and easily to produce a plug-in solution. Each motor terminal board box contains an M20 connection. The plug-in connector is easy to fit using the M20 x 1.5 thread. There is no need for additional adapters and special mechanical solutions. This means that the plug-in connector quite simply adopts the geometry of the motor connection box and no further mechanical work is required. The advantages of using the X-TEC 15 are obvious: wherever this plug-in solution is used in motors, the performance remains the same yet a great deal of space is saved. In addition to this, connector-and-cable systems using X-TEC 15 and W-TEC 15 units can be used, regardless of the make and manufacturer.

Compact solution, simple handling, low price

Depending on where motors are used, space can be a problem. The compact size of LQ’s solution means that use under cramped conditions is not a problem. An end-to-end solution is also possible with the appropriate W-TEC 15 cable. Both parts together form the most efficient connector-and-cable system of its size, with 6 x 2.5 mm² continuous operation at 16 A on the power contacts and 10 A on the auxiliary contacts. Unbeatable value for money, with the X-TEC 15 and W-TEC 15 LQ Mechatronik Systeme GmbH has created an excellent connector-and-cable solution for varied applications such as motors in various units, conveyor systems, pumps and fans. With LQ’s solution complicated superstructures which take up space are no longer required.
