A new insulation stripping tool and new PROFIBUS copper cable for the       

PROFIBUS FastConnect system are now available. The stripper can only be     

used in conjunction with the new PROFIBUS FastConnect copper cable.         


User benefits of the new FastConnect system:                                


The new FastConnect system considerably reduces the time required to attach 

a PROFIBUS connector. The use of the insulation stripper for the PROFIBUS   

FastConnect (FC) cable also avoids errors. With a single cut, the stripper  

with its integrated blade cassette with two blades cuts the outer sheath    

and the woven shield. A table on the rear side of the stripper lists the    

cutting dimensions required for different connectors. The FC insulation     

stripper is pre-adjusted to the FC PB cable.                                


The PROFIBUS FC cable will replace the previous PROFIBUS standard cable     

(6XV1 830-0AH10). Both cables will remain available in parallel for a limi- 

ted period.                                                                 


The present connectors (6GK1 500-0EA00, 6ES7 972-0BA11-0XA0, 6ES7 972-0BB11-

0XA0, 6ES7 972-0BA40-0XA0, 6ES7 972-0BB40-0XA0) can be prepared with the    

new PROFIBUS FAST CONNECT cable and the insulation stripper.                

In the second quarter of 1999 new connectors tailored to the new FC tech-   

nique will be introduced.                                                   


The new PROFIBUS FAST CONNECT standard cable is available by the meter and  

in preferred lengths.
