FieldPower is a family of products with a completely new connection concept facilitating decentralised power distribution solutions for systems spread across wide areas.
The flexible busbar offers an economic solution for mechanical and plant engineering, in airports, motor car production and anywhere where power has to be distributed over longer distances.
In addition to pluggable connectors, cables, pre-assembled and terminated cable harnesses, tools and an extensive range of accessories, the FieldPower family of products includes T-junction boxes with protection class IP 65, maintenance switches and junction boxes – optionally available with fuse function.
Uncut round or flat cables can be used to distribute power. Power is tapped from the five-core power cable anywhere close to the consumer via the PowerBox, which is equipped with rapid termination technology IDC (Insulation Displacement Connection).
Hard-wired or pluggable solutions for branch lines and outgoing feeders to starters and frequency converters are possible. That reduces the length of cable to be laid and in so doing also reduces mounting times.
All told, FieldPower lowers project costs and increases flexibility when extending plant, making changes to current projects or when plant layout needs to be altered at a later date.
PowerBox Fuse for cartridge fuse links
The PowerBox Fuse for ¼" x 1¼" fuses (cartridge fuse links) is deployed to protect loads, outgoing feeder circuits and branch lines. The corresponding fuse ratings and specifications are contained in DIN VDE 0100 Part 430.
A red LED provides visual indication when a fuse is blown. Conductor cross-sections from 0.5 to 4 mm2 can be connected to the fuse plugs.
The FieldPower product range is available from Weidmuller.
