WOW! Is it just me or is this year flying by? Every year it feels like everything gets forced forward in time. Walking through the shops and seeing all the Easter egg displays doesn’t help for a chocoholic like me. The one good thing that comes from it is brand awareness and your unlimited choices. However, with all the endless choices, we are always drawn towards the product that stands out the most. And just like the in-store Easter egg displays, at Phoenix Contact you are spoilt for choice! But today, I’d like to tell you about one of the products that stand out for me. The Phoenix Contact FDX20 series Splice box. Before we get started though, I’d like to give you the history of how Fiber Optics started and how far it has come since the beginning – because it’s a ‘force’ to reckoned with!
I can’t believe the first month of the year is just about done and we already have so many new and exciting products to share with you all. Welcome to 2019 with Phoenix Contact – Reliable connection in the device. Our engineers constantly develop new products, this year is no different. Discover our wide range of new products in the following areas: PCB terminal blocks and PCB connectors.

I have been focussing on Marking and the relevant printers as the mainstay of my division since blog one. However, the Marking Company consists of 3 subdivisions: Marking, Tools and Installation.
Arguably, from an on-the-job artisan point, tools have to be one of the more exciting products. Traditionally, these “boy-toy” products have gone through some major improvements and ergonomic upgrades over the past few years. Phoenix Contact has played more than its part in the development of innovative new products as well as improvement of existing hand held tools. This has undoubtedly led to tools that are easier on the hand, stronger and in many cases lighter.
Personally, and having 18 years of experience in the harshest of environments (from the deepest mines in the world to cement and glass factories), next to safety, is the quality of the work you do. Coupled to this it is quite obvious that the tools you use would make a huge difference. Phoenix Contact is fast becoming renowned for tools that not only meet the highest international standards (IEC/DIN/UL where appropriate) but in-house testing in Germany often takes our tools to an even higher level.

Why is it that even though we know the Electra Mining Exhibition takes place every alternate year, it always seems to sneak up on us catching us by surprise? This year was no different but thanks to Sheree’s professional attention to detail and her ability to keep us PM’s in line, last weeks exhibition exceeded all my expectations. What a pleasure it was to host our loyal customers and introduce ourselves and our products to future clients on a stand that made us proud. Well done Sheree and all those involved.

The technology used in mining has certainly changed over the years and looking back at the history of mining is certainly very interesting. If one looks at diamond mining, the Kimberly Diamond Mine known as “the Big Hole” produced 14,5 Mil carats over a period of 43 years. In 2017 the Debeers mining group produced a massive 33,4 Mil carats in just one year! It is staggering to see the growth in production. This is obviously due to the developments in technology and innovative solutions available in the market today. The latest developments in digitilization or “Digi Mining” are now making mining smarter year on year and obviously assisting in cost reductions as well as growth in production.
