Cube67 from Murrelektronik is a field bus system with a modular design for on-machine installation concepts. It’s engineered flexibly to be the optimal solution for any application – meeting protection class IP20 through IP69K.
With the Hygienic Design modules for Cube67, the Cube system features the benefits you need for your machines and systems implemented in the food industry.
The food industry has extremely demanding requirements when it comes to durability and cleanliness of components. The Cube67 Hygienic Design modules have been designed to fulfill every single requirement. They are housed in a closed stainless-steel housing and feature as well as threads in V4A (1.4404) and that facilitate cleaning. They meet the highest protection class IP69K. The Cube67 on-machine installation concepts can be used actively right into food areas.
These features can reduce costs:
Eliminate the costly stainless-steel terminal boxes used in the food sector can be phased out completely by using Cube67 Hygienic Design modules.
Parallel wiring over stainless steel mesh in food & beverage applications is extremely elaborate, and expensive specialised cordsets need to be used. The Cube67 HD system directly connections the processes with a one-cable-technology system. This saves space and greatly reduces the installation efforts!
Valve manifolds and intelligent sensors can be implemented in a cost-efficient way via the IO-Link master module.
