One factor is crucial in ensuring quick commissioning times and reducing downtime during maintenance: the clear and durable labeling of all elements in the photovoltaic installation such as terminals, conductors, devices, and equipment. With a comprehensive range of weather-proof and UV-resistant marking materials, Phoenix Contact provides a labeling system tailor-made to the needs of PV installations.
Phoenix Contact extends its PSD signaling column product range to include the WIN (Wireless Information Network) wireless system. Using this wireless system, the signal states of up to 50 signaling columns can be wirelessly transferred.
DC/DC converters in the Quint Power design are new additions to the Phoenix Contact product range. Employing Selective Fuse Breaking (SFB) technology, these high-quality voltage converters reliably trip standard circuit breakers. Faulty circuits are selectively shut down, the fault is localized, and important system components remain operational.
The RAD-WHA-1/2NPT Wireless HART adapter from Phoenix Contact simplifies and speeds up the retrofitting and expansion of systems with 4–20 mA signal cables. The adapter is connected to an existing HART device in the field to transfer HART data wirelessly into a new system, while the original system based on just 4–20 mA remains intact.
The new Solarcheck monitoring system from Phoenix Contact is a new reliable instrument for monitoring string currents in large-scale photovoltaic installations. The easy-to-integrate system detects losses in power caused by dirty or damaged panels. This enables targeted remedial measures to be taken so as to increase system availability and thus revenues.
The M12 hybrid connector from Phoenix Contact is the first hybrid connector in the market with a compact design fit to address industrial applications.
Phoenix Contact presents a complete product line that offers new connection concepts to address the requirements of the new encoder generation. The two-part modular system comprises the M12 connection block and a rectangular flange. The dimensions of the rectangular flange are harmonized with the existing rotary encoder housings, so that encoder manufacturers do not have to redesign their devices.
The Lightning Monitoring System LM-S from Phoenix Contact provides information online about lightning strikes in plants and systems. As a consequence, service call planning can be optimized. This new system identifies and analyzes all of the important parameters of lightning surge currents based on the Faraday effect.
