It is a versatile unit that can support three kinds of mounting such as surface to fixtures, through tap holes, and DIN rail types. It additionally features an installation kit that includes screws, caps, and connectors for the mounting. This device has an operating temperature range of 25 to 70 degrees Celsius.
The Allen Bradley 1786-TPS is a ControlNet Coax T-tap module that belongs to the C series of Bulletin 1786 products. It is designed to connect any device and the ControlNet Coax media system. This unit comes with channel A and B cable labels, threaded screws, self-tapping screws, and a BNC connector kit. In addition, it includes a universal mounting bracket, a transition plate, and a dust cap. However, the availability of additional components depends on the mounting tap and installation that users select. Besides that, this ControlNet tap does not require DIN rails, which are designed with distinct materials. However, this part might require additional components such as screws of various lengths, tie wrap for mounting the tap, and a wire strap for tightening the coax cable.
Moreover, this component allows a range of mounting options such as DIN-rail, the surface to fixture, and mount through holes in the tap. As far as the jumper connection is concerned, users can utilize T-taps and Y-taps via a plug to plug the jumper. This device has an operating temperature range of 25 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees Celsius, as well as a relative humidity range of five percent (5%) to ninety-five percent (95%) that should also be non-condensing. This device is able to withstand a vibration of 2.5 G at a frequency of 10 to 500 hertz. In contrast, the operating shock operating rating is 30 G. The installation of this unit must follow the standard guidelines instructed by the manufacturers, and it should be operated in the said temperature ratings to keep it safe and functional.
