CLIPSAFE – Your one-stop junction box solution

From |

The “Blame Game”

Have you ever been bothered by such a situation?  Picture this, you have just completed your run on a beautiful day only to return home and realize that your feet are full of blisters. Should you put the blame on the shoe manufacture for using a material that is too tough, or would you blame the socks company for using a material that is too soft?

Things can potentially get uglier when it comes to planning for or executing a project. Have you had the unfortunate experience of opening a ‘Brand X’ junction box, to find yourself having ‘Brand A’ terminal blocks and maybe some ‘Brand C’ cable glands or markings inside. If there is a fault, who you should go to?

You may potentially find yourself being trapped in the “Blame Game” if you are having two or more different suppliers involved.  And if you have ever been trapped in one, you will know that the chances of successfully finding a solution and getting out is very minuscule.

What if there was a supplier who could provide you with a one-stop shopping experience?

CLIPSAFE – Your one-stop junction box solution

Over the years, many of our customers have requested Phoenix Contact to provide one-stop services where they not only purchase standalone components but are able to purchase a solution. We realized it made perfect sense for us to develop a portfolio of “basket or box” which would allow us to further improve our customers’ buying experience. This was the genesis of our CLIPSAFE range of junction boxes.

Device connection for high currents

Device connection for high currents

Improve efficiency and productivity is a common mission all companies want to achieve.  A company with high efficiency can produce more results while maintain it’s overhead, thus increase its profit margin. Through a switch of screw to spring connection technology,  it is possible to achieve the desired result.

Let’s take a look at the connectivity trends, the demand for quick-connection technology is steadily growing. Today, the spring-cage-based connection technologies allow convenient conductor connections within seconds, and the defined contact force makes them safe as well. In addition, terminal failure due to improper torque can be avoided this way. Until now, there is no device connection with quick-connection technology for cross sections of more than 35 mm².

The panel feed-through terminal blocks TW 50 and TW 95 with the new T-LOX connection technology from Phoenix Contact, connectivity has been comes simple and convenient. It even can support multi-strand connectors still ensuring a flexible and safe connection. The T-LOX connection principle is based on a spring that generates a programmed contact force with just a conventional screwdriver.

TW 50 TW 95
Cable Cross-section 16 mm² – 50 mm² 25 mm² to 95 mm²
Current capacity Up to 150 A Up to 232 A
Voltage capacity Achieve a voltage of 1000 V according to IEC 60947-7-1 and unlimited 600 V UL approval in Use Group C according to UL 1059.

A Wireless Solution – Easy Expansion Without the Hassle.

From |

Radioline – A Wireless Solution

What do you do when you need to collect more information from the field than you are currently able to? Traditionally, you would excavate then lay cables from the transmitter to the field device. A lot of hassle if your expansion was for just 4 signals. We may have just the wireless solution for you.

Recently, a water reclamation plant in the western part of Singapore had an existing system that required an expansion of 4 additional analog signal points. The distance between the field and the control room was only about 200 meters. However, to add just 4 signal from the field, proper wiring had to be done, including excavation and cable laying.

Our team, with the assistance of our system integrator met up with the customer to understand their needs. After determining the scope of work, a wireless solution was proposed. Instead of the labour-intensive cable solution, the team proposed the Phoenix Contact Trusted WirelessTM Radioline RAD-2400-IFS and the I/O extension module – RAD-AI4-IFS and RAD-AO4-IFS as an alternative.

Installing a wireless transmitter at both the field and the control room, our engineer then connected the analog signals to the IO cards, enabling the signal to be transmitted back securely. All this, from start to finish, we achieved in under an hour.

Trusted WirelessTM

Trusted WirelessTM 2.0 is a wireless technology specifically developed for industrial use. It provides rugged and reliable communications for your applications. In a 2.4 GHz band, Trusted WirelessTM 2.0 uses a Frequency Hopping Spread Specturm (FHSS) with up to 440 possible individual frequencies. Thus reducing the effects of interference signals.

We not only saved our customer a significant amount of time and manpower with the Radioline Wireless solution, future expansions would only require the addition of IO modules.

Portugal
Portugal’s lack-lustre performance in the group stages left many pondering if they would make an early exit. However, Ronaldo played the Captain’s part to inspire his team to reach the Semi-finals. Can he inspire them all the way to lift the trophy?

Wales
Having topped Group B during the group stages, Wales has performed consistently to secure their place in the final four. Will this be their year to finally claim the title of “Best in Europe”?

Germany
Being the only team left to have won this title three times (1972, 1980 and 1996); the other team being Spain. Germany will be looking to take home a fourth title to repeat their World Cup Feat. Joachim Löw’s team will have a tough match against host nation, France.

France
Having won in 1984 and 2000, France will be aiming to equal Spain’s and Germany’s achievement of three titles. France’s performance has been consistent since the group stages and culminated in a 5-2 drubbing of Iceland in the Quarter-finals. They will be bringing their ‘A game’ to the clash of the giants with Germany.
