Concentrated power for variable installations

9 March 2005 Interconnection

Wieland's flat cable system, the gesis NRG, can be described as a 'flexible power rail', which serves as a central supply bridge for efficient installations. It is compatible with the company's gesis CON connector system.

Usually, rigid power rails have often been the only solution for applications under high power. Their high mounting effort left little space for flexibility - both for installation changes and for power supply to additional consumer devices. Now, gesis NRG can offer fast lay-out and tapping in any place, even for later installation without any problems, says the company.

The 5x10 mm² or 5x16 mm² flat cables can be laid out fast and easily, eg, in existing cable ducts. In contrast to rigid power rails, the flat cable optimally adapts to the architectural design. Special adapters allow supply and tapping in any place without having to interrupt the line. The Wieland technology uses V-screws for the connection components, turning them in through the cable sheath and thus contacting the wires. This method avoids time-consuming cutting to length, stripping and clamping of the individual wires.

This flat cable system is specially valuable for complicated installations, as they can be implemented even more flexibly and economically. Its compatibility with the gesis CON connector system is beneficial too: power is led through the flexible power rail directly to the consumer devices, which are supplied by the pluggable gesis CON system. This saves on cable lengths and reduces the installation costs.

The Wieland system enables installations from 16 A through 63 A, which are implemented as one consistent pluggable system.
