The F&B industry doesn't make any compromises where cleanliness and corrosion protection are concerned. Dirt must be easy to remove. Parts are exposed to high pressure wash downs with aggressive cleaning agents.
This makes stainless steel the preferred material. Murrelektronik's MVP12 Steel distribution boxes feature a closed stainless steel housing and threaded sleeves made of V4A stainless steel ensuring an IP69K rating. No matter if you are cleaning, rinsing or disinfecting MVP12 Steel will always operate reliably.
Prior to the introduction of MVP Steel, individual cables had to be routed through a system - a very complex task in the F&B industry because of the cleanliness requirements. Now a single homerun cable replaces the individual ones. This reduces material costs, the amount of wiring and space required. Moreover, terminal boxes are no longer required in the field. MVP12 Metal is installed close to the process so sensors and actuators can be connected to one of its eight ports with the shortest possible cables.
To complement the MVP12 Steel distributors, Murrelektronik offers M12 Steel connectors that are fully potted and made of corrosion resistant stainless steel. Together the distribution box and cordset form a closed and rugged unit for F&B applications.
