Lumberg Passive Distributors Make Installation Easy and Cost Effective

Posted by Dan Giebel in Sensors

Save the time needed for the lengthy and expensive installation of terminal blocks in enclosures. Passive distribution boxes mount directly on machinery and combine signals from sensors and actuators while transmitting them via one integrated or quick-disconnect control cable to the controller. Such decentralized wiring offers significant cost advantages compared to conventional distribution systems.


Compact: Due to their compact construction, M8 and M12 distribution boxes only take up a small amount of space in systems and machines 

User-Friendly: Lumberg Automation products combine compact construction and optimum handling characteristics to enable fast, easy, and safe wiring. 

Turn 8 into 16: As with all Lumberg Automation distribution boxes, the gaps between individual slots have been designed to allow connection of 2-way T-distribution boxes, making it possible to control up to 16 actuators and sensors over a single distribution box. 

For harsh environments: Stainless-steel and metal housing models (up to IP 69K) are also provided for use in food-processing machinery and other special applications requiring extra-high chemical resistance or other special characteristics.

  • 4 ports, 6 ports, 8 ports, 10 and 12 way distributors with or without LED indicators
  • 1 or 2 signals per socket (single or two channel versions)
  • Pluggable versions or with fixed control cable
