More often than not, when people talk about Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) or Industry 4.0, they neglect the ‘links’ between the sensors and components.
Yes, I’m talking about the connectors (the ones that connects sensors and components, what else?).
A huge part of IIOT includes data collection and analysis.
This means that a lot of sensors and cables will be used to detect, capture and transmit data. It can be really time consuming and a chore to wire these amount of cables directly into the panel on-site during installation and maintenance.
If you’re reading this, consider yourself lucky.
I’m going to show you how Phoenix Contact’s Heavycon can make connection easy, fast and smart. (Don’t be fooled by its name. It’s not heavy in weight rather, it’s heavy duty – able to withstand demanding environments).
So what’s a Heavycon?
Phoenix Contact’s Heavycon is a plug-and-play solution.
It allows the cables to be pre-wired into the connector within the panel and in the field. This makes on-site installation and maintenance fuss-free and efficient.
Simply plug and play! It eliminates the tedious process of direct wiring on-site.
It also removes the need to open up the panel during installation and maintenance which in turn reduces the risk of people meddling with the crucial components within the panel.
Termination of wire is also made easy with Push-in Connection Technology. No special tool is required. Simply insert the wire with ferule into the designated slot. To remove, push the orange button and pull the cable out.
Heavycon also comes in modular form!
Heavycon Modular allows you to connect signal, data and power in one single connector.
Push-in connection technology is available in module form too. We also have a wide range of network modules such as RJ45, D-sub, Gigabit Ethernet Cat 6 connectors and even fibre optics and power module up to 200A.
The unique snap-in frame makes inserting and removing of modules a piece of cake. This provides the flexibility of changing the configuration effortlessly according to your set up.
Need more flexibility? Heavycon EVO enables you to change the direction of cable entry on-site depending on your desired arrangement.
Furthermore, Heavycon is resistant against dirt, water, vibrations and high mechanical strain and has protection up to IP69K.
Thus, it is able to withstand harsh conditions and is suitable for outdoor applications.

With that said, it’s about time to start adopting smart connectivity as we hop onto the IIOT bandwagon.
