Phoenix Contact is a worldwide leader in the development and manufacture of electrical connection, electrical interface, and industrial automation technology solutions. A global company founded in 1923 with the U.S. headquarters in Pennsylvania, Phoenix Contact has developed a strong industry presence in innovative products and processes through its wide product range. Components offered include sensor, controller, modular terminal block (invented by Phoenix Contact in 1928), splash proof machine connector, and wireless Ethernet products.
Phoenix Contact SUNCLIX DC Panel Feed-Through Connectors feature device integration that allows for cabling inverters or generator connection boxes quickly and easily - even in locations that are difficult to access. SUNCLIX Panel Feed-Through include versions for conductor cross sections from 2.5mm2 to 6mm2. These connectors feature voltages up to 1100V or 1500V and IP68 protection.
Phoenix Contact's Solarcheck Photovoltaic/Solar Monitoring & Diagnostic Modules provides reliable information regarding the performance of your photovoltaic system. You can therefore detect errors and take appropriate countermeasures. Photovoltaic systems should achieve maximum energy yield within the shortest possible time. Solarcheck enables you to respond immediately to power loss at individual lines which may be caused by damaged panels or defective contacts and cabling.
Phoenix Contact VIP-ER Interface Modules have been developed to expand the breadth of products within the VARIOFACE Professional line, while also addressing customer demand for an interface module with high-speed termination capabilities. VARIOFACE Professional revolutionized interface modules with its unique design that results in a slim, compact, and rugged package. VIP-ER will expand this concept for customers looking to extend beyond the passive feed-through line of modules and come into the world of active interface modules via push-in technology. The VIP-ER Series offer the same great features and benefits of the existing VARIOFACE Professional interface modules, but now also incorporate "active" features like relays and fuses. This further simplifies individual signal control between field devices and upper level controllers.
Phoenix Contact QUINT ORING Active Redundancy Modules
feature ACB (auto current balancing) technology. This means that your
power supplies are utilized to an equal degree and their service life is
therefore extended. With QUINT ORING modules, the system operator
immediately notices when there is no more redundancy. QUINT ORING
modules from Phoenix Contact detect critical operating states within the
entire supply path and notify the operator in good time.
Phoenix Contact Fiber Optic M12 Cable Assemblies & Connectors
provide robust, watertight connection solutions for POF, PCF, and GOF
fibers. Features include cables constructed from 2.2mm individual wires
made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), rugged polyurethane (PUR) outer
sheath, highly tear-resistant aramid strain relief elements, and
gradient index fiber for maximum performance requirements in terms of
transmission bandwidth. The design protects the sensitive ferrules and
fiber end surfaces during contacting and assembly. The offering is available in male to male cable assemblies and female cable and panel mount couplings. Designers can use panel feed-throughs with an integrated
transceiver or couplings for the integration of the M12 fiber optics
connection into electronic or control cabinet housings. The transceiver
integrated in the panel feed-through allows direct opto-electrical
conversion. With IP65 and IP67 degrees of protection, these connectors
are ideal for use in the industrial environment and 10/100/1000 Mbps
Phoenix Contact RS20 Series Rotary Switches are made
from high-quality materials, in a compact design and have a long
mechanical and electrical service life. They are internationally
approved and can be used up to 20 A and 690 V. Thanks to their compact
design and the conductor connection direction, the rotary switches are
ideal for switchgear in which space is limited. All terminal screws are
enclosed in the housing thereby preventing contact with live parts in
accordance with BGV A2. Non-conductive parts are made of plastic, which
means, for example, that voltage cannot be transmitted to the control
Phoenix Contact FL SWITCH 1001T-4POE Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switch is a five-port Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) device that supports PoE (802.3af) as well as PoE+ (802.3at) on four ports. This Phoenix Contact switch is classified as power source equipment (PSE) and meets the 2009 IEEE 802.3at specification for higher power requirements found in devices such as PTZ cameras, 802.11n access points, and IP video phones. When powering IEEE 802.3at-compliant powered devices (PD), the integrated power supply provides up to 34.2 W from each PoE+ port and eliminates the need for additional wiring. FL SWITCH 1001T-4POE addresses the escalating need for PoE products in a variety of applications, including perimeter security and vision systems employing IP cameras.
Phoenix Contact's Radioline wireless platform offers wire replacement for simple I/O and serial communication. Radioline offers a cost-effective wireless solution with software-free radio setup. Radioline is ideal for applications where it is too costly or not possible to run a wire. It features simple I/O-to-I/O communication without the need for programming software. More advanced configurations, such as high-speed serial communication, network topologies up to 250 nodes, non-intrusive diagnostics, and 128-bit AES encryption, can be accessed via the free programming software. Radioline is available in two variants, 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz, allowing for applications to span distances from a couple hundred feet to multiple miles. The new Radioline platform is well suited for simple wire replacement, pump control, sensor, flow and temperature monitoring, and PC/PLC/RTU interface applications.
Phoenix Contact PTSPL & PTSPLO Series
Non-Insulated, Single Terminal Blocks provide a convenient wire to board
connection, thanks to the SUNCLIX style spring-cage termination. All
terminal blocks are suitable for fully automatic PCB assembly and are a
cost-effective solution for THR soldering processes. With their their compact dimensions and their ability
to accept 1000V and 41A, they set no limits
when creating PCBs.
Phoenix Contact S & T Coded M12 Power Connectors and Cable
Assemblies are coded to prevent mismating with signal connectors and
connectors with differing voltages. They provide a robust watertight
connection for high power in AC or DC voltages. Available with PCB
connectors, cable connectors, and single ended cable assemblies.
Phoenix Contact PTF Series PCB connector is a compact high-performance connection system for easily connecting 8mm wide flexible LED strips. Compact connector dimensions minimize the overall impact on the flexible strip. Quick installation with tool-less clamping saves time and installation costs and reduces errors. These connectors come in three options: two-wire for power, four-wire for signal and power and board-to-board.
Phoenix Contact MUT Series Modular Terminal Block use the "small" DIN
rail and have an overall width of 3.5 mm. Since
their other dimensions are also very compact, they are ideal for
installation in small switch boxes or terminal boxes, e.g. for a motor
connection. The MUT series features two flat exterior marking grooves to
accept flat marking material such as UC-TMF. A further middle marking
groove covers the function shaft, which can however still be used for
standard plug-in bridges. The proven screw connection provides additional advantages: multi-conductor connections and zero maintenance.
Phoenix Contact MPT Mini Feed-Through Terminal Blocks feature a
space saving, compact design and mounting option on a 15 mm DIN rail.
The MPT terminal blocks utilize CLIPLINE COMPLETE bridging & and
plugging options making them ideal for smaller
control cabinets/boxes. The MPT terminal blocks also have a clear
arrangement thanks to marking of all terminal points. The MPT terminal
blocks have been tested for railway applications.
Phoenix Contact has developed an entirely new way to assemble Heavy Duty Connectors in the field with the HEAVYCON EVO, which utilizes a unique bayonet locking function in order to attach cable glands to any size EVO hood. The HEAVYCON EVO is unlike any other Heavy Duty Connector in market with its incomparable use of a bayonet cable gland that reduces the overall amount of parts used to make one complete connector. By using this type of connection for the cable entry, the gland can be aligned either horizontally or straight, depending on the needs of the user, and is 100% compatible with industry standard panel cutouts and connectors.
