As a solution, Weidmüller offers FieldPower®, a modular power management system that satisfies the special requirements for the installation, subsequent expansion and modification of the plant modules. The power distribution is mounted directly on the plant panel next to the motor. Thanks to the patented cutting and clamping technology, contact can be made with the power line at any point without cutting. The MONO-SWITCH FieldPower® motor starter, a DUO-SWITCH FieldPower®, a MONO-SOFT-SWITCHFieldPower®, a DUO-SOFT-SWITCH FieldPower® or a VECTOR FieldPower® frequency converter can then be fitted on the power distribution chassis. Depending on the task, all drives can be optimally designed, since the systematic standardisation of all connections enables a reaction-free exchange of the components.
