New SNAP TEX Cables & Breakout Boards Make Wiring a Snap

SNAP TEX video Wiring installation, maintenance, and debugging are now a whole lot easier, thanks to our new SNAP TEX cables and breakout boards.

Part of the new SNAP TEX family of wiring and mounting accessories, these cables and boards reduce the time and effort required to wire field devices to SNAP I/O modules.

SNAP TEX cables provide neat, protected wiring from the top of a SNAP I/O module to a SNAP TEX breakout board or your own board. Each cable is 6 feet (1.8 m) long.

SNAP TEX breakout boards take field wiring away from the crowded I/O rack and give you more space to work.

  • SNAP-TEX-32 is a straight-through board that handles 32 I/O points.
  • SNAP-TEX-FB16-L and SNAP-TEX-FB16-H include fuses, fuse-blown indicators, and bussed power for digital modules. The -L provides 12-24 V and the -H provides 120-240 V. Each board handles 16 points.
  • The SNAP-TEX-MR10-4 and SNAP-TEX-MR10-16 include 4 or 16 mechanical relays, one for each point. These boards boost the switching power of a SNAP digital output point to 10 amps!
