Hygienic design - a clean concept
The special hygienic design makes the plug-in connectors particularly easy to clean. The use of stainless steel ensures comprehensive protection against corrosion and contamination can be quickly detected thanks to the light-colored molding.
The demands placed on plug-in connectors vary depending on the area of application - Phoenix Contact offers the ideal solution for every application:
- Product contact zone
Covers all areas where foodstuffs are processed, conveyed, stored or come into direct contact with surfaces.
The components used here must meet the highest hygienic requirements. M12 plug-in connectors with hygienic design are ideal for this area.
- Splash zone
Product parts that cannot be utilized as food or other deposits could accumulate in this area.
For example, when filling and packaging food. M12 plug-in connectors with washdown design are best suited for use in this area.
- Product-free zone
All areas that have no contact with either the product or product parts such as the packaged product.
This area poses little or no risk of hygienic contamination. Our standard SAC range can be used here, for example.
