Drive the Automotive Industry with Phoenix Contact’s Data Connectors

Automative Assembly Line
The Automotive industry is one of the highest revenue-generating industries in the world. In 2016, about 95 million cars were manufactured. Thailand is the biggest country for the automotive industry in South East Asia and the 12th largest in the world as of 2015.

About 2 million vehicles are manufactured annually in Thailand.

Automotive manufacturers are adopting automation for a more cost-efficient way to make vehicles. By replacing human with robotic technology, the company would be able to save on wages and related costs such as insurance, medical leave, employee’s benefits as well as taxes. This shifts the labour intensive production to a data-driven production.

Heavycon Complete

HEAVYCON Complete

In the blog post written earlier in June this year, we talked about the new addition to the HEAVYCON Complete family – HEAVYCON modular. Today, we would like to go in depth and tell you more about HEAVYCON Complete.

First, let me give you a brief introduction on heavy duty connector. It consists of a pair of contact inserts and the housing which is made up of a base and a hood.  In Phoenix Contact, HEAVYCON comes in 3 different models to suit your different requirements.

HEAVYCON EVO

Heavycon Evo

Uniquely Phoenix Contact!  HEAVYCON EVO is specially designed for users who are unable to determine direction of the cable entry. By simply twisting the special bayonet gland, the direction of the cable entry can be changed as desire. Furthermore, the special bayonet gland comes in 4 different sizes ranging from M20 to M40 that fit all the HEAVYCON EVO housings. This basically means that you can save up to 70% of the logistic cost when you’re using various sizes of the housings.

HEAVYCON Standard

Heavycon Standard

HEAVYCON Standard comes in 2 parts- a panel mounting base and a hood. Like HEAVYCON EVO, HEAVYCON Standard can be plugged and unplugged easily without the use of additional tools. A huge array of different combination is available depending on your needs, be it single latch, double latches or box mounting (where no panel cut out is required). All our metal housings are made of AlSi12 aluminium which is seawater resistant. Thus, suitable for marine application

 

HEAVYCON Advance

HEAVYCON Advance

Instead of panel mounting base like HEAVYCON EVO and Standard, HEAVYCON Advance uses panel mounting flange which reduces the height of the connector. Need higher IP rating? HEAVYCON Advance is IP69K rated which means that it is dust tight and is able to withstand powerful high temperature water jet.
