Pluggable electrical installation for difficult environments
9 March 2005, Interconnection

With the gesis IP+, Wieland Electric has continued the success story of its existing gesis CON system by offering a complete installation system with IP66/IP68 protection. For use in parking garages, underground garages, tunnels or industrial plants - wherever a high degree of protection is required, Wieland offers an overall system solution that has pre-assembled components and corresponding connections.

The user is offered a consistent pluggable installation system, from supply to distribution and further transmission to the end devices.

The pre-assembled parts are simply plugged into one another, which Wieland says reduces installation costs by around 25%, and time savings by almost 90%, compared to traditional installation methods. A high degree of safety is added: while in traditional wiring the degree of protection is often lost due to errors in assembly, the error rate of installations with gesis connectors is virtually non-existent, says the company.

In addition to the increased degree of protection, Wieland says the gesis IP+ offers further benefits: the entire system is designed for a rated current of 20 A; the distribution devices, device connections and cables are fully assembled; the contacts are all spring-loaded and offer two terminals per pole; spring technology makes the installation even more convenient; installation in the field is therefore easy and fast; any two components are interlocked by simply snapping the parts together; the male and female connectors can easily be separated again by means of a screwdriver.

Due to a current carrying capacity of 20 A, gesis IP+ also fulfils international criteria for use in countries outside Europe. Meeting international regulations and standard IEC 61535 guarantees that gesis IP+ can be used worldwide.

In the course of development, the focus was put on applications in lighting technology. Various device connections are available that make all common housing types for lighting equipment pluggable. In addition to the three-pole version, a five-pole version is currently being planned.

The three-pole distribution device is available as pre-assembled distribution unit, the standard version of which provides one input and three outputs and can be obtained with and without fasteners. Optional distribution facilities are available through fitted and wired standard installation boxes.
