The UPS-CONF software
Monitor and configure UPS systems from Phoenix Contact using the UPS-CONF software. The new version features more functions and various improvements.
Firstly, UPS-CONF is a management software to configure and monitor QUINT-UPS devices, that come with the IQ technology. This technology with continuous battery monitoring and intelligent management provides you with information about the charging state, remaining runtime, and service life of your battery at all times. Intelligent communication informs you when a situation becomes critical. Eventually, this reduces the amount of maintenance involved and increases your system availability.
Phoenix Contact is implementing the communication standard for virtual power stations
To begin with, Nuclear power plants will no longer exist in the future. By 2050, 80% of our electricity is expected to be generated by using renewable energy sources. These sources include wind parks, photovoltaic systems, hydroelectric power plants and biogas plants. A large number of individual energy generators however, means that the power grid will have to change in the future. This is how electricity generation and especially electricity distribution works today.
On the positive side, the industry forum VHPready (Virtual Heat & Power) is implementing the communication standard for virtual power stations. This standard is the basis for virtual power plants in which volatile renewable energy generators network in such a way that guarantees consistent energy supply to society and industry. As one of the founding members of this industry forum, Phoenix Contact takes part in developing the standard in collaboration with leading industry experts. This is a very positive perspective for the future. Continue reading
Multifunctional Crimping Tool – CRIMPFOX 4IN1
The CRIMPFOX 4IN1 range has multifunctional crimping pliers for processing conductors and ferrules. Using only one tool, you can implement various work steps: cutting, stripping, twisting and crimping. Moreover, the newly integrated 4-step pressure lock also enables use in industry.
- Fast handling
- High comfort
- Increased efficiency
- High process safety
- User friendly
- High durability
Using only one tool, you can implement various work steps: Cutting, stripping, twisting and crimping.
CRIMPFOX 4IN1 has multifunctional crimping pliers for processing conductors and ferrules.
Cutting, stripping, twisting and crimping can quickly be realized due to the effective positioning of work stations.
High Comfort: Time and cost saving due to an integrated twisting unit. The tool does not need to be put aside when twisting the wire.
Increased efficiency: Time and cost saving due to pre-positioned (endless) ferrules in combination with a self-adjusting crimping and stripping system.
Managed Switches in accordance with IEC 61850
IEC 61850 places special requirements on network components. High ambient conditions apply for use in the energy area, which are specified in IEC 61850-3. For instance, our new managed switches have FO ports with ST connection and complete our Industrial Ethernet portfolio in accordance with IEC 61850.
What are the main advantages?
- Can be used under the harshest electromagnetic, electrostatic, and climatic ambient conditions.
- Reliable, error-free data transmission over long distances, thanks to FO technology.
- Redundant, replaceable power supply and special operating voltages.
- Fast redundancy mechanisms for high availability.
- High port density in one rack unit for low space requirements in the control cabinet.

Network infrastructure according to IEC 61850
A reliable and permanent power supply is essential for every industrial company. Over a quarter of the world’s population still has no access to electricity. From now until 2030, energy consumption in countries such as China, India or Brazil is expected to grow disproportionately. Rising energy costs, the scarcity of resources, CO2 emissions, and the associated climate change are global factors.
In order to overcome these challenges, a review of the energy infrastructure field is required, together with new system approaches such as the intelligent power grid, known as the Smart Grid. Therefore, the IEC 61850 international series of standards and communication based on Ethernet technology are an important basis for this review.
Industrial relay system for all relay applications
RIFLINE complete is our industrial relay system used to implement all standard relay applications. System handling is particularly easy thanks to push-in technology and other features.
Firstly, the area of application ranges from coupling and timer relays through to the small power contactor replacement. Nevertheless, it differs from other product ranges with regard to its functionality, handling, range of products, and quality. Comparatively, the modules range from narrow 6.2 mm coupling relays to a replacement for small power contactors.
The most powerful relay can switch voltages up to 400 V. Similarly, the relay system with universal plug-in design supports high machine and system availability. Not to mention that the relays can be replaced quickly during maintenance work.
