Until now, most control devices have been equipped with screw, flat plug or terminal connections. According to Georg SCHLEGEL GmbH & Co. KG, however, this type of wiring is associated with increased effort and is also prone to errors. Problems that could be eliminated with a change to the M12 connection. But up to now, a change to M12 usually had to be accompanied by a complete exchange of the series. A major disadvantage. The new FRT connect series from SCHLEGEL is now intended to provide a remedy: a contactor with M12 connection. With the contactor, control devices of various series can be retrofitted with an M12 connection. Or as SCHLEGEL puts it: FRT connect makes existing systems "ready for M12" - simply and quickly.

With the FRT connect contactors, all SCHLEGEL command device series with 16 millimetre sleeve collar and three millimetre stroke can be combined and thus made M12-compatible. Whether lamp, NC or NO contact - the variety of possible contact types leaves hardly anything to be desired, according to Schlegel. The connection can also be chosen between a 4-pole plug with SCHLEGEL pin assignment or a 5-pole plug with AIDA pin assignment. A long service life and high switching capacity round off the positive features of the FRT connect series. More individuality would hardly be possible, according to the Swabians.
