MVP12 Steel: a hygienic distribution box for the Food and Beverage industry

Murrelektronik's new MVP12 Steel is an IP69K stainless steel distribution box that is tailor-made for decentralised Food and Beverage machines and installations, where hygiene and cleanliness are the number one priority.

Machine components and installations in the Food and Beverage industry have to be easy to clean. With that in mind, Murrelektronik's new MVP12 Steel distribution box, made from high-quality stainless steel, is an ideal solution to implement a decentralised approach in Food and Beverage machines and installations.

The Food and Beverage industry doesn't cut corners where cleanliness and corrosion protection are concerned. Dirt must be easy to remove and 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.

Single homerun cable

Prior to the introduction of MVP Steel, individual cables had to be routed through a system. A complex task in the Food and Beverage industry because of the cleanliness requirements. Now a single homerun cable replaces individual ones, reducing material costs, wiring and space requirements.

Distribution box for food and beverage applications

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 Food and Beverage applications.
