Only with u-remote: the highest connection density on a module, the slimmest module width and significantly lower system requirements with respect to power-feed modules
WIN! In concrete terms, what specific added value does this offer
Hoffmann: These values mean that u-remote achieves an unprecedented level of connection density. While it may well boast a comparable range of functions, our solution is significantly smaller than alternative systems. After all, connection density naturally goes hand in hand with flexible system structures. There is enough room on our new HD modules for all the cabling of 8 individually pluggable sensors or actuators, each with
4 lines. These would have to be split over several modules on any other systems currently available.
Hoffmann: Of course, we are also continuing with u-remote's superior handling concept at this point. Thanks to the ingenious plug-and-play technology of our HD plugs, installation work in tight spaces can be completed quickly and safely in decentralised applications. The insulation displacement contact (IDC) simplifies cable assembly by only stripping the sensor lines that the connectors are fed into, which must then be pressed together with a parallel pressing tool.
Working with pre-assembled lines for plug-in connectors makes for fewer cabling errors in spite of noticeably shorter installation times. This means entire machine modules can be cabled faster and transferred to the productive area as part of a far simpler process. So it's obvious that subsequent maintenance and retrofitting work is much more straightforward too.
