As a pioneer in Industrial Connectivity, we have been forging close partnerships and gathering extensive solution expertise for over 160 years. With our integrated Klippon® Connect range, we are continuing this success story and offer application products tailored precisely to the requirements of various industries. Allowing you to design your processes to be much more productive. Find out for yourself and discover more in the following application examples.

Signal wiring for machine construction

In the detailed engineering of remote control systems, the coordination and interaction of initiators, actuators and the connectivity used for distribution is an essential factor. As a rule, limited space is available for the electrical installation. Equipment is also often located in places with limited access, for instance in local terminal boxes.

Application solution

Initiator-actuator terminal block with PUSH IN technology (AIO)

Description

Unlike conventional wiring solutions, the initiator-actuator terminal blocks AIO offer a high wiring density with up to 4 different potentials on a single terminal block measuring just 3.5 mm wide. That way you benefit from enormous space savings and signal feed-in flexibility.

Outstanding clarity with compact design, optimised safety with simple handling thanks to the PUSH IN technology and maximum flexibility in selecting the design type mean you can meet the requirements of reliable signal wiring simply, efficiently and safely.

Connecting pre-assembled functional units in power generation

Local automation concepts are now the solution of choice. Modularity also determines the engineering in machinery and plant engineering. After all, modularity increases efficiency and thus contributes decisively to cutting costs. When it comes to modular automation concepts, usually the different system elements are not developed and produced entirely in-house; they come from different partner companies too. The final commissioning must be fast and convenient. Pluggability is an important criterion here.

Application solution

Pluggable terminal blocks

Description

Our application solution with pluggable terminal blocks reduces the planning overhead from the outset. Equipped with a PUSH IN connection on one side and holders for one or two codable connectors on the other, the system enables support points to be set up in the tightest of spaces to provide rapid wiring.

The terminal types are designed in such a way that the plug-in direction of the connectors is the same, which is especially beneficial during pre-assembly, as only the order of the connections must be observed. In different systems, it is also necessary to consider into which side of the modular terminal the connector has to be plugged into later on.

An externally sprung contact and locking elements guarantee that the connector is positioned in the terminal block in a shock-, vibration- and shake-proof fashion. The solution is thus ideally suited for use in machine and system construction, process technology, marine vessel and rail vehicle construction, as well as wind energy, whereby constant connections guarantee lasting energy yield.

DCS marshalling in process control systems

Increasingly complex requirements for automation processes and increasing demands in terms of monitoring and recording operational data have led to an ever-increasing number of sensors in the field for process technology. This presents planning engineers with new challenges to overcome: on the one hand, additional signals for automation need to be connected and processed; on the other, additional space usually means higher costs.

Application solution

Marshalling terminal blocks with PUSH IN technology (PRV)

Description

The PRV terminal blocks have been designed and optimised specially for DCS marshalling in process control engineering with up to 16 connection levels.

In planning, you benefit from unique, space-optimised design, which also results in a considerably higher signal density than conventional solutions. The PUSH IN connection ensures that you successfully prevent wiring errors and do not require any special tools for rewiring. The coloured matrix structure allows customers to benefit from clear orientation and, in turn, error-free signal assignment when completing extension and maintenance work.



DCS marshalling in process control systems with fusing

In process engineering and power generation control systems, terminal blocks are the solution of choice for connecting and distributing initiator-actuator signals. Traditional field connections with fuses used to require three different terminal blocks: one feed-through terminal, a fuse or disconnect terminal, as well as a PE terminal or a copper rail to connect the shielding. An enormous amount of space was therefore needed for the DCS marshalling.

Application solution

Marshalling terminal blocks with clamping yoke connection (WMF)

Description

Our multifunctional terminal block family combines the functions of feed-through, fuse and disconnect terminals in a single system. Thanks to the integrated PE or shield connection, the WMF terminal block replaces an additional PE terminal and does away with the need for a separate installation for the shield connection. With a space requirement of just 10 mm per signal circuit, you save a great deal of installation space on the terminal rail.

The fuse holder with pivoted lever facilitates convenient fuse replacement and is fitted with an optional LED circuit which clearly signals that the fuse has been tripped.

Secure power distribution for wagon-to-wagon couplings

A permanent train connection requires a simple installation that is both robust and reliable over its working life. The installation is, however, often completed at other geographical locations and across language barriers. All of which calls for simple solutions which are also fault-tolerant and safe.

Application solution

Bulkhead connector with ST 4000 stud terminals

Description

With our ST 4000 stud terminals (4 kV) we provide a modular system. The ring cable lug connection system, which is a proven railway technology, is also recognised around the world as being extremely easy to use. The weather-resistant terminals made from epoxy resin are designed for all power lines up to 240 mm² and 4 kV, and as such can be used in all applications.



Motor connection in a confined space

Connections in the vicinity of the motors are subjected to particularly severe conditions: high vibration and shocks, as well as dust, water and extreme climatic stresses. In addition, 3-phase asynchronous motors and their junction boxes are located on bogies during assembly. This leaves little room for convenient installation or dismantling.

Application solution

HighPower Motor Junction Box with ST 4000 stud terminals

Description

As your partner in Industrial Connectivity, we offer services that allow us to provide and develop the right solution whatever the application. In our application-specific solution for connecting three-phase synchronous motors, a row of ST 4000 ring cable lug stud terminals are assembled to shield the unit against external influences and securely cased in one of our K-Series aluminium enclosures in the Klippon® Protect enclosure system. All of which ensure reliable power transmission and long-term connection security.
