The highly anticipated exhibition of Drives & Controls is finally here!

Weidmüller highlights speed, convenience and efficiency

Weidmuller will be exhibiting at Stand H120 showcasing their innovative new SNAP IN technology, along with the intuitive yet powerful Weidmüller Configurator Software (WMC) and the Weidmüller Wire Processing Centre (WPC), which dramatically reduces wiring time for control panels. Another key theme on the stand is Industrial Ethernet and automation which Weidmüller is supporting with its eco-line and u-mation portfolio.

Visitors to the Weidmüller stand are invited to meet the company’s specialist engineers to discuss their specific requirements.

Klippon® Connect terminal blocks with SNAP IN connection technology

The Klippon® Connect terminal blocks with SNAP IN connection technology are currently the only one of their kind in the world. The AS-Series can be used to wire flexible conductors quickly, simply, with no tools and without the need for wire-end ferrules. The conductors are simply plugged into the connection point and the mechanism clamps the conductor with an audible click. The SNAP IN technology guarantees a long-term secure and reliable connection – even for the increasingly automated wiring processes of the future.

The AS-Series is already integrated into the WMC configurator software which allows users to design terminal rails quickly and easily, selecting from a wide range of components and simply dragging and dropping them into place. Intelligent software assistants guard against errors and help to optimise the design, while 3D viewing makes it easy for users to ensure that the finished assembly will fully meet their requirements.

Weidmuller Configurator (WMC) , Fast Delivery Service (FDS) and the Wire Processing Centre (WPC)

When the design is complete, it can be sent directly from the Weidmuller configurator to Weidmüller’s Fast Delivery Service. This streamlined process, based on the WMC software and the FDS service, reduces design time, cuts production time and minimises the risk of errors, while also eliminating the need for users to hold stocks of terminals and associated components.

The WPC Wire Processing Centre featured on the Weidmüller stand takes data directly from a CAD or CAE design package automatically cuts wires to length and strips them. It then prints the wire-end markers and crimps the wire ends. Reductions of up to 50% in the time required to wire control panels are possible, along with other benefits that include more efficient use of costly wire, with reduced waste and scrappage.

IIoT u-mation and more!

Visitors to the Weidmüller stand who share the fast-growing interest in IIoT will have an opportunity to discover u-mation, a coordinated portfolio of modern automation hardware, innovative engineering and visualisation software, which allows users to develop and implement scalable digitalisation and automation solutions. Optimised at all process levels from the sensor to the cloud, these solutions will create future-proof foundations that underpin the most efficient production concepts, including those embodied in Industry 4.0.
