The new versions of the Contactron hybrid motor starter from Phoenix Contact enable quick and easy integration into the common fieldbus systems Profibus, Profinet, CANopen®, DeviceNet, Modbus, and EtherNet/IP™.
Process data, such as motor current, is transmitted to the control system via the bus system with the aid of the corresponding gateway. This allows service intervals to be optimized, which plays a role in increasing system availability.
Thanks to the efficient wiring concept of the hybrid motor starter, the new devices also enable easy integration of the fieldbus with a short startup time. Mounting is easy with the DIN rail connector as the devices make contact as they snap on. The control signals are forwarded via the fieldbus system, therefore there is no need for digital outputs for motor control on the controller side. The extensive parallel cabling of the control and signal level is no longer required. All in all, the system offers a compact and economically attractive solution for motor control.

Push-In Technology was developed by Phoenix Contact in 1978. The very first modular terminal block, the FK 1,5 with a direct plug-in spring connection, designed to offer installation engineers an easy and safe conductor connection method used this technology.
Due to its handling and compact design, the FK 1,5 is still found in elevator engineering, machine and system construction even today! Just like the FK 1,5, the concept of Push in Technology still exists and is going strong today – because it improves the way we do things…. even in our daily lives!
Read on to find out how.
From the most reliable UK – Universal Screw terminal blocks to advance spring technology terminal blocks, Phoenix Contact has successfully developed and produced terminal blocks over the past90 years.
As terminal block innovation is the heart and soul of our company, Phoenix Contact never fails our customers with new terminal block innovations over the decades.
Picture the following scenario. It’s a hot and sunny day and the weather is absolutely scorching. Just then, you are offered 2 glasses of beer – one foamy and one non foamy.
Which glass of beer would you choose?
In the Oil and Gas, Marine, Offshore oil drilling platforms, Onshore oil wells, and Refineries, devices used must cope with the harsh environment reactions that can damage the electronics on printed circuit boards.
So how can device manufacturers like us do to increase the life span of these devices and making it more reliable under these conditions? Continue reading
Phoenix Contact has added a compact version to its range of automation switches to accommodate use in Profinet systems: The new FL SWITCH SMN 8TX-PN with eight 10/100 Mbps copper ports can be configured and diagnosed using the Profinet Device function in the PC Worx and Step 7 engineering tools.
