TE Connectivity – Hybrid communication, signal and power connector simplifies industrial motor installations


TE Connectivity (TE) supplies the fully configurable Motorman connector system, which integrates communication, signal and power for electric motors in a single assembly. A cable-crimped version enables installation in cabinets.

Servo motors are widely used in industrial equipment, and are typically connected via a deterministic control architecture, with power supplied via a separate cable. The Motorman hybrid connector from TE integrates communication, signal and power-transmission cabling for locally controlled motors into a single, compact rectangular connector.

It provides space for two four-pin Ethernet sockets, five power sockets, five signal sockets and one earth contact.

The innovative design and compact size of the Motorman hybrid connector allow for considerable space saving in comparison with traditional rectangular industrial connectors. The connector also helps to reduce the total amount of cabling as well as shortening the length of cable required in typical motor installations.
