M8 multi-port junction blocks are IP67-rated and feature three-pin M8 connectors (v3 style) in four-, six- and eight-port models. They reduce cabling requirements and simplify wiring by allowing multiple sensors to be wired to a single block, with a single cable run back to a controller. The junction blocks provide 24-Vdc operation, in temperatures ranging from -30 to 80 C, and home run connections can be made either via integral cable (with eight-port models) or a V19-style eight-pin M12 connector. LED indication is provided for PNP sensor outputs.
