The World’s Premier Industrial Fair
My visit to Hannover Messe 2016 was by far the best trade fair I attended! Given that I had only 2 days at the fair, my time was spent focusing on our very own Phoenix Contact’s booth. This year under the slogan “Solutions for the Future”, Phoenix Contact presented state-of-the art technology and innovative products and solutions for different industries.
CCSPlus Charging System
One of the main crowd puller at Phoenix Contact’s booth this year was the CCSplus fast charging system for electric vehicles. The CCS charging system is capable of charging up to 350,000 watts in about 15 minutes with enough energy to travel a distance of 600 kilometers.
Intelligent Photovoltaic Panel Shutdown
SOLARCHECK RSD shared the star limelight at the booth along with the CCSplus fast charging system. Typically, photovoltaic rooftop system generates DC voltages of up to 1000 V and cannot be disconnected easily if any fault occurs. SOLARCHECK RSD automatically switches the system to a safe state protecting repair and maintenance personnel from life-threatening electric shocks during installation and maintenance.
Mr. Ferdinand B. Caluza, President & CEO of Controlgear Electric Corporation (CEC) shared with us how he benefited from the visit. “Prior to visit to Hannover, CEC was only using Phoenix Contact’s terminal blocks, PVC wire ducts, wiring labels and accessories. After 2 days at Hannover Fair, I will be exploring more into the products and solutions offered by Phoenix Contact. Just to name a few; power meters, current transformers, string combiner box and PV connectors/fuses, surge and lightning protection and the intelligent photovoltaic shutdown systems. I am particularly interested in the current transformer for retrofitting and will definitely discuss this further with Phoenix Contact’s team upon my return to Philippines”.
