Other cases with screw connection for central systems ???
« on: September 11, 2012, 09:59:31 AM »
Hi,
I want to ask the users, if they also need other boxes:

For all my applications the "Deutsch" connector of the controller is not good for intern connection.
We install the controller in a box or in the machine. So wie don't need IP68, only IP20.
And we need screw connectors to connect the wires direct to the controller.
Now I put a terminal block between the controller and the machine.
It is to expensive and to large.

What do you think?
Do you also wait for controllers to install on a cap rail or in a box and with the possibility
to connect via a screw connector? So you can connect more than one wire in one pin.

I hope, Sauer-Danfoss is working on this.

Yep would be great. We almost always use the controllers inside a cabinet so no need for it to be IP...high.

I also put the controllers in a larger box, but I like the current plugs because even in a "waterproof" cabinet, moist and dampness will allways be an issue, this is the case for our machines anyway.
However I do see the benefits of a smaller Plus1 case with screw terminals, as long as it is easy to unplug and replace the controller.

Hello Gents,

Please see the attached datasheet for a breakout interface box, and drop me an email if you required any further info.

Regards, Ian.

Hi Bernd,

It would be wrong of me to discuss prices etc on this forum.  If you would like to contact me on ian.mudie@itec-electronics.com I will answer your questions.

Apologies, but we are yet to update the website with our products.

Many thanks, Ian.

I would love to see the Plus+1 units with the form factor of a typical industrial PLC.  I've done over 20 Plus+1 systems and every one has been mounted inside a cabinet.  We do this because connectors usually fail first, because there are always other bits involved (like fuses, distribution terminals, relays, operator controls), and because no one likes servicing a mud/oil/salt/manure/sewage/tomato (yes tomato) encrusted MC050.

Nice all-in-one breakout box Ian.

I beg to differ.  On larger projects with four or five modules we often install them in a large panel. 

You can bet they last forever in a tight enclosure. With a terminal strip laid out well, the ability to troubleshoot is at the level customers are used to.

We also, very often mount them about a mobile machine, where best utilized.

We then use Duetsch new buss connectors to buss together the can and power wires. Works well, is neat, forever clean and the buss connector allows tracing easily.
