Murrelektronik offers cost-effective, reliable and space saving passive distribution boxes
Passive distribution boxes and pre-wired cordsets pay dividends when it comes to industrial automation. In this article, PIF spoke to automation technology experts Murrelektronik to find out more about their cost-effective, reliable and space saving passive distributors.
Resolving installation issues
The rising complexity of machines and electrical installations indicates a subsequently rising level of automation. Nowadays, you expect to deliver a machine that will increase your customer’s competitive advantage while staying on-time and within budget.
In many instances, the installation time of discrete wired solutions is slow and cumbersome. Often leading to complicated circuits, confusing wiring and problematic troubleshooting. These common issues can be easily resolved, without straining existing resources or requiring additional training, by employing a passive distribution box.
Passive distribution boxes
Passive distributors deliver performance and confidence over discrete wired solutions and have been designed to reduce your wiring efforts. By working with a partner that specialises in decentralised automation technology like Murrelektronik, you can increase your machine production, and at the same time, increase your customer’s competitive edge.
Single-wire connectivity in machines and installations is troublesome and error-prone. Murrelektronik’s passive distribution boxes provide a much more convenient method for connecting sensors and actuators to the control cabinet, with a comprehensive range of distribution boxes.
They create optimum installations for any application that provide three distinct advantages:
Cost-effective – Distribution box installations can be setup quickly, thanks to modular components that allow easy and convenient exchange; saving time and money.
Reliable – Integrated LEDs make troubleshooting easy. It goes without saying that Murrelektronik’s distribution boxes have IP65 or IP67 protection. Practical and pre-tested plug connections also help prevent wiring errors.
Saves space – Fewer terminal blocks, fewer cable entry systems, and fewer terminal boxes
in the field are distribution box solutions that save space and also offer flexible mounting options.
Murrelektronik passive distributors
Murrelektronik’s wide range of passive distribution boxes includes solutions for food and beverage, packaging, assembly lines, production and handling machines, as well as machine tools, swivel tables, metal cutting, and industrial robotic applications.
For example, Murrelektronik's M8 distribution systems enable economical installation solutions, even in a confined space. The components are only 30 mm wide and can be installed in many ways – including side mounting. While their M12 distribution boxes are designed for consistently connected solutions from the control into the field. They can be easily separated for assembly and transport. The fully potted boxes are sealed and resistant to a variety of media.
