Products target diverse range of applications in panel maintenance, conveyor systems and motor control
SINGAPORE, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, is significantly ramping up its levels of support for electrical equipment installers and maintenance engineers in electrical systems and automation markets with in-stock availability of many thousands of new product lines from leading manufacturer Phoenix Contact.
RS is an authorised global distributor for Phoenix Contact and both companies are working very closely together in all markets around the globe to provide highly innovative products delivered with a first class service. Available through RS in Europe and Asia, the Phoenix Contact portfolio covers a broad range of products including PCB connectors, terminal blocks, signal conditioning, relays, interface relays, PLCs and power supplies, among many others types.
Key applications for the Phoenix Contact range are panel maintenance, conveyor systems and motor control in industries such as industrial automation, and particularly in the automotive arena; process industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals and food and beverages; machine and cabinet building; and the power generation industry, including utility companies and the photovoltaic and wind energy sectors.
A key technology implemented in many Phoenix Contact products such as relays, terminal blocks and connectors is Phoenix Contact’s Push-in connection technology, which makes it easier and faster for maintenance engineers and installers to fix cables to devices, saving time and operational resources. The Push-in conductor connection technology is direct and tool–free for either solid conductors or conductors preassembled with ferrules. The spring profile enables easy insertion of conductors with ferrules of 0.34 sq. mm or more, while being simultaneously subject to maximum ‘pull-out’ forces. Conductors can be easily released with any type of tool by using the actuation lever, while avoiding direct contact with electrically live parts.
Further details on the complete range of products from Phoenix Contact are available via the RS Components website.
