Pioneering Industrial Connectivity – Seamless connections and interfaces

Pioneering Industrial Connectivity – Seamless connections and interfaces

As the inventor of the first modular plastic-insulated control cabinet terminal in 1948, we play a pioneering role in the area of industrial connections. We pave the way for efficient and practical connectivity for the panel, making our customers more productive. By working together with our customers, we are able to gain insights into their needs and develop new pioneering solutions and components.

Whether circular connectors for signal processing between the sensor and the controller, heavy-duty connectors with IP67 for transferring energy at an interchange for high-speed trains, PCB terminal blocks and connectors or non-contact energy transfer – you can trust the quality and technological edge of the connectivity pioneer. Today, the unique SNAP IN connection technology is one of the most innovative connection systems on the market.

Jörg Scheer, Executive Vice President of the Device & Field Connectivity Division, gives you an overview of the highlights in the area of seamless connections and interfaces

Industry is changing. Digital networking and modularity are penetrating industrial technologies and enable a high level of flexibility in production.

At the same time, with the rising number of smart end devices around the world due to digitalisation, networking is becoming an increasingly complex task.

Continuous connection solutions and interfaces are therefore now becoming increasingly important.

Seamless connection solutions – reliable, secure and resistant

Under decentralised system concepts, energy, signals and data have to be reliably transferred, often under extreme environmental conditions. This requires continuous connection solutions from IP20 to IP6x that are compatible with current and future automation systems. As a pioneer in connectivity, Weidmüller also provides reliable and forward-looking connection solutions in decentralised environments. This includes IP-protected connectors, distributor solutions and pre-assembled cables as well as systems for non-contact energy transfer and the implementation of decentralised automation functions.

Connectors – sophisticated connections to boost efficiency

With our connectors and services, we are helping our customers to independently master the most complex cabling projects, which makes us the ideal partner for the implementation of complete and continuous connection solutions. From individual connectors to cabling concepts and smart solutions for the systems of the future – we have the ideal solution for each requirement.

Heavy-duty connectors – outstanding performance, even outside the panel

Heavy-duty connectors ensure the safe transfer of energy, signals and data in industrial environments – from the panel to the field. Through appropriate connection technologies, they guarantee reliable transfers for various applications – through to high-current applications in railway engineering or wind power plants.

The world of the connector is harsher outside the panel. So this requires robust designs that are highly resistant to extreme industrial and climatic influences such as electromagnetic interferences: True RockStars that master the entire bandwidth for transferring energy, signals and data with absolute performance. Welcome to our RockStar® family of heavy-duty connectors – outstanding performance in all environments.

Connect faster than ever before: The new SNAP IN connection technology will take your wiring processes to a whole new level. With SNAP IN, installation and maintenance work can be performed as quickly as snapping your fingers. The connection is as simple in principle as it is to use: The stripped conductor is inserted directly into an open connection point and the snap connection snaps into place with a click. And it's just as quick in reverse. Simply press the pusher and the connection point re-opens immediately.

Weidmüller was one of five companies to be presented with an award by the panel building trade journal SCHALTSCHRANKBAU published by TeDo-Verlag – for our SNAP IN connection technology. SNAP IN is the first genuinely tool-free wire connection on the market. The innovative spring mechanism makes direct contact with both rigid and stranded wires directly when plugged in.

Device connectivity – safe and loss-free transmission

Device designs are smaller, more powerful and more cost-effective with each new generation. Accordingly, the connection system for more compact sizes must transfer high currents to the printed circuit board reliably and with minimum losses and also ensure a mechanically stable connection. From data connectors and sockets with futureproof transfer properties to panel feedthrough terminal blocks and electronics housing for industrial applications with a clear focus on the processing of signals and data as well as power electronics. Trust in the quality and technological edge of the connectivity pioneer.
