Modular electronics housing system provides a home for individual electronics solutions destined for applications in industry, process automation and building technology.
Innovative mounting-rail housing concept
Weidmüller is introducing a newly developed, modular electronics housing system to the market in the form of its IP20 rated CH20M. CH20M encloses individual electronics assemblies for installation in electrical cabinets or distribution systems. These electronics housings are simply snapped onto TS 35 top-hat rails.
Versatile, scalable and cost effective
CH20M stands for ‘Component Housing IP20 Modular’ and offers efficiency and innovative design in equal measure for production and applications. The new housing standard for electronics components combines standardisation with versatility – in a manner of speaking, the customer receives a ‘tailor-made suit with off-the-peg convenience’. Weidmüller’s modular housing concept facilitates a highly individual design – tailored to meet the customer’s requirements – extremely functional, efficient and optimised for cost effectiveness.
Then there is the scalability of the housing series – at the present time a 6.0-mm wide SlimLine housing and a 22.5-mm wide module are available ex works. The housing series will be continually extended. The 22.5-mm housing not only offers sufficient space for electronics assemblies but large operating and display surfaces as well. The SlimLine housing has been designed with four connection levels and a total of eight connections. The compact 22.5-mm wide housing is equipped with up to three connection levels – each fitted with an ejector lever. It has been designed for reliability, a point underlined by a leading contact for reliable separation of the connection and a captive coding system. The transparent top cover can be removed, printed with individual markings or even sealed – to protect the operating and display elements.
Optionally available pin headers are suitable for SMT/THR reflow technology and can be supplied packaged ready for automatic placement. With every square millimetre of the 7400 mm² PCB board available for use the placement area is very generously dimensioned. The CH20M offers the manufacturer the advantage that the housing can be tailored exactly to suit his application and not the other way round.
