Phoenix Contact USA 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 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.
Phoenix Contact STEP UPS Uninterrupible Power Supply is a compact solution to providing standby power for short-term power losses. The modules are available in 24VDC and 12VDC versions and come with an integrated lithium-polymer battery module. Status LEDs indicate the operational condition. In addition, the status can be communicated to a supervisory control system through integrated status contact. Battery runtime can be adjusted via a rotary dial to prevent over-discharging.
Phoenix Contact EMD-BL Compact Monitoring Relays provide a cost-effective solution for simple monitoring of single phase current & voltage, and 3-phase voltage and phase monitoring. The EMD-BL
monitoring relays feature push-in connection technology designed to save space, quicken wiring and simplify set-up of the control cabinet.
Phoenix Contact VIP-PT Terminal Block Interface Modules expand the VARIOFACE professional line to offer high-speed termination via push-in technology. VIP-PT Terminal Block Interface Modules quickly and accurately connect field and control signals in control cabinets. A high density cable, such as ribbon, D-Sub, and HD D-Sub connects the control side of these modules to I/O cards and transmit signals to the field side for individual wiring. This design bypasses the time-consuming and potentially error-prone task of wiring directly to the I/O card via terminal blocks and point-to-point wiring.
Phoenix Contact has expanded the MINI MCR Analog product line to include the new MINI MCR-SL-F Analog Transducer that converts measured signals from a variety of input sources into a linear current or voltage signal. The MINI MCR-SL-F Analog Transducer from Phoenix accommodates inputs from dry relay contacts, NAMUR sensors, NPN and PNP signals. Main features of the MINI MCR-SL-F Analog Transducer include easy dip-switch programmable set-up, including teach-in wheel for accurate input range; wide power circuit input range of 9.6-30VDC; low transmission error of 0.1% for a higher level of accuracy; and fault monitoring of Over Range, Under Range, Line Break, and Short Circuits.
Phoenix Contact MINI Analog Isolating Amplifiers isolate,
convert, filter, and amplify analog signals. The ultra-compact
amplifiers provide space savings with a width of only 6.2mm, allowing
the modules to be installed in 120mm deep control enclosures. They
feature low power consumption due to their innovative circuit design.
Less heat provides a longer life and higher energy efficiency. Many of
the modules are configurable. No software is needed for configuration
due to the DIP switches on the side. Three-way isolation between input,
output, and supply increases operation reliability.

Phoenix Contact UNO POWER DIN Rail Power Supply provides a compact solution for applications requiring up to 100W of power. Designed for low-cost, basic functionality, UNO POWER is available with three performance classes: 30W, 60W, and 100W. Housing widths of 22.5mm, 35mm, and 55mm, make the series ideal for compact control boxes. Maximum energy efficiency is provided with more than 90% across the operating range of -25ºC to 70ºC, as well as idle losses below 0.3W.
Phoenix Contact PT-IQ Intelligent MCR Surge Protection Devices are engineered with multi-stage remote monitoring and status reporting capability with reliable T-Bus connection. With new design features and proactive functional monitoring, PT-IQ stands out as a unique, intelligent MCR surge protection device. It prevents unnecessary maintenance by providing alerts so that the user knows when to replace plugs before they reach their performance limit. PT-IQ ensures system availability with excellent signal quality.
Phoenix Contact Cable Entry System (CES) allows pre-wired cable to easily pass through an enclosure wall or panel without cutting the terminated connector end. Comprised of a sealing frame and multiple cable grommets, features of the system include ingress protection of up to IP65, compatibility with standard rectangular connector cut-outs, and easy assembly. Two frame styles are offered: the screw-mounted version provides IP65 protection with cable ties; the latching style offers IP54 protection. The cable grommets are available in either gray UL97V 0-rated thermoplastic or black UL94HB-rated NBR.
Phoenix Contact M8 & M12 Sensor Actuator Cordsets are manufactured in the United States, decreasing lead-times and are built to a North American look and feel. M8 and M12 form factors have become an industry standard for robust and watertight quick-connect applications in industrial communications, sensors, and actuators. Phoenix Contact’s North American Style Cordsets are ITC/PLTC rated for use in cable trays and raceways. The cordsets are PVC jacketed for a lower cost, with great resistance to chemicals, are dual rated, and are also UL Listed, which allows the cable to be installed on industrial machines within the guidelines of NFPA 79. All cables are also sunlight resistant allowing them to be installed in outdoor environments.
Phoenix Contact WLAN Wireless Modules are designed to meet the demands for higher speed wireless Ethernet in industrial environments and feature a high performance 802.11n wireless standard, which allows for Multi Input / Multi Output functions to significantly increase the speed and range for wireless communications. The new 802.11n wireless Ethernet interface modules are also backwards compatible with 802.11 a/b/g modules being used in existing networks. Phoenix Contact also offers a wide variety of antennas, cable assemblies, enclosures and hardware to simplify implementation of high speed Ethernet in industrial applications.
