The new UCS Housing

The Universal Case System, by Phoenix Contact

Specific solutions often require very specific housing designs.

The concept for the new universal electronics housing (UCS) from Phoenix Contact makes it easy for equipment manufacturers to source for suitable packaging for their embedded system.

Trends such as industry 4.0, Internet of Things, LTE (Long Term Evolution – 4th generation mobile communications) and Smart Home are increasingly utilizing the networking of electronics.

The devices used are based on embedded systems.

New application fields create a large number of electronic assemblies. Because of this, it is often difficult to find a suitable housing.

With its flexible PCB mounting system, the new UCS by Phoenix Contact helps device manufacturers to implement the application quickly and hassle free.

Need An Affordable Custom Housing For Your Raspberry Pi Project?

We are living in a fast paced society whereby information is moving at a incredible rate. The  infrastructure has evolved from traditional mail to fax to email. Despite its speed, the device is still shrinking in size. Gone are the days when people were buying big and bulky devices.
I still remember that my first personal computer was the 486 Compaq (It was the state of the art at that time). It came with a huge CRT monitor.

I could never imagine over the course of 20 years, the computer could shrink even further to a pocket size. Enter the new generation of micro-computing, the Raspberry Pi; the single board computer.  Since its introduction in 2012, Raspberry Pi devices has sold over 10 Million set.

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi’s application is limited by our own imagination. This could range from hobbies to professional applications which require high-quality, functional enclosures and connection technology (e.g Home Automation).

The professional devices need to be assembled and used in installation distributors or control cabinets in a safe way and in accordance with the applicable standards – especially if they are part of a commercial building or industrial automation solution. It is also essential to have simple and reliable wiring – when connecting sensors to the general purpose IO (GPIO), for example – if the Raspberry Pi is being used in a production environment. Furthermore, wiring should be completed quickly, and connecting GPIOs to expansion boards should not require additional time-consuming steps, especially during assembly.

Powerful New Safety Relays are Just 6mm Wide

The new PSR Mini relays from Phoenix Contact are the world’s slimmest safety relays with the power of a large safety relay. With their compact 6-mm width, they ensure high safety thanks to positively driven contacts.

Phoenix Contact’s new relay technology makes this compact design possible. The design is based on a slim but powerful basic relay characterized by minimal space requirements, low energy consumption, and high system availability.

The safety relays switch loads up to 6 amperes, are compatible with many signal transducers, and can be used in many different applications thanks to extensive approvals. This makes the new products especially suitable for mechanical engineering and process industry applications.

For users, these slim modules require up to 70 percent less space. Since only a single enabling contact is needed, applications can be built with new and improved cost-effectiveness. Safety relays can even be used to build distributed systems in potentially explosive areas. The terminal carriers also enable the use of system cabling solutions for a fast and correct start-up and field connection.

The complete PSR Mini range of safety relays consists of 6-mm and 12-mm models.
