VM15 and VM25 Terminal Breakout Modules

VM15

There are 2 different versions of the VM15, 15 position cage clamp, DIN Rail mount, breakout modules. The VM15 module has 16 connections, pins 1-15, and a shield (S) connection to the housing of the connector on the module. This connector is a standard (2 row) 15 position male D-Subminiature style. The module is the same between both versions; the difference is the cable that comes with the module.

Obsolete VM15 information for reference:
VM15  The cable that comes with this module is part number 71-016949-02 (can be purchased separately). This is a standard (2 row) 15 position male D-Subminiature connector to a standard (2 row) 15 position female D-Subminiature connector on each end of a 2 foot cable. This was a screw-terminal module.

VM15-PF The cable that comes with this module is part number 71-021483-02 (can be purchased separately). This is a standard (2 row) 15 position female D-Subminiature connector to a high density (3 row) 15 position female D-Subminiature connector on each end of a 2 foot cable. This was a screw-terminal module. This is replaced with a VM15-FC-02.

VM15-PM The cable that comes with a this module is part number 71-021484-02 (can be purchased separately). This is a standard (2 row) 15 position female D-Subminiature connector to a high density (3 row) 15 position male D-Submniniature connector on each end of a 2 foot cable. This was a screw-terminal module. This is replaced with the VM15-MC-02.

Obsolete Miscellaneous Module Specifications:
Wire range: 26 - 12 AWG
