Improved PROFIBUS connector 6ES7972-0Bx61-0XA0
Effective immediately, an improved version of the existing 60-series PROFIBUS connectors with 35 degree cable outlet and displacement terminal connection is available.
This version replaces the currently available 60-series connector with article number 6ES7 972-0B.60-0XA0. The improved connector is compatible with its predecessor in terms of functionality and spare parts. The new type with article number 6ES7 9720B.61-0XA is characterized by an improved and harmonized connection concept based on the existing PROFIBUS connectors of type 6ES7 972-0Bx42-0XA0.
In detail, the improvements in use include the fact that the lid can be kept open more easily so that it does not have to be held by hand. In addition, the walls of the basic housing are higher so that the cable strands can be held inside the connector better and do not become trapped when the lid is closed. As a result, wiring and installation of the connector becomes easier overall.
We recommend that you use the stripping tool 6GK1 905-6AA00. There is no change for you in this respect. The stripping length for the 60-series connector should still be used.
If this tool is not available to you, please use the stripping lengths given in the instruction leaflet supplied with every connector. This leaflet can also be downloaded as a PDF file (109482949).
The dimension drawings for the PROFIBUS connectors are also available for download as PDF file (19425126). Because the dimensions of the 61-series connectors are identical to those of the 60-series connectors, please refer to the data sheet for the 60-series connector.
