Concatenated, modular control cabinets, as commonly encountered in production lines should be as compact as possible to facilitate integration in the machine environment. Well structured cabling is also required so that you know at a glance which cable is going where when troubleshooting.
"Power distribution with conventional circuit terminals used to take up lots of space in this application, because you had to allow two bridged modular terminals per potential, which made handling more difficult and cabling confusing due to crossing lines. A configuration like this can always be a source of faults with unnecessary follow-up costs," explains Product Engineer Martin Adamczyk from Weidmüller. "Our double-level WDK 10 terminals for power supply and distribution now enable users to save up to 50% space compared with solutions that were previously commonplace."
50 % space saving
The WDK 10 extension can give you up to 50 % space savings compared to conventional terminals – combined with noticeably reduced costs.
One terminal point – two conductors
With two conductors in one terminal point, your cabling of the neutral and phase distribution is completely standards-conformant.
A clever solution for a transparent control configuration without crossing cables: delivery in complete sets makes installation easy and reduces installation costs.
Flexibility in TN networks
Transform TN-C networks very simply into TN-C-S networks by implementing PEN functionalities with standard cross-connections.
Compact power distribution
Two consumers can be integrated in a highly compact manner using the double-level WDK 10 terminal.
