Housings feature enhanced connection flexibility

19 November 2003 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Phoenix Contact's modular ME electronics housings with a width of 22,5 mm now have a new upgrade: upper sections compatible with Combicon pluggable connection technology.

In addition to the upper section with two connection levels, the new ME 22,5 OT-1MSTBO single-level upper section offers up to 80% more space for indicator and control elements. This additional space leaves a lot of room for custom device design. The upper section is now also available as a 45 mm-wide unit.

The three-level ME 22,5 OT-3MSTBO upper section is ideal for applications with a very high connector density. Each device accommodates up to 24 pluggable connectors featuring screw, spring cage or Quickon quick connection technology. Same size - 50% more connectors.

Combining the ME 22,5 UT and slim-design ME 22,5 F-UT lower housing parts with the three different upper parts results in a total of six different pairs suited for a wide range of control cabinet or decentralised switch box applications.
