Application Assistants in detail

Our Application assistants help you to create solutions for special applications quick and easy by selecting different settings. The assistants will automatically build up a solution regarding on these settings. Each Application assistant is designed to create the best fitting solution in the easiest way to you only by setting specific technical characteristics of your application.

Application Assistants in detail

Industrial Enclosure

The Industrial Enclosure assistant is designed to create a complete solution of electrical components mounted in an enclosure that fits your needs.

You can use the assistant in two different ways. Starting with the customization of the enclosure and add the mounting rail afterwards or you already have a finished mounting rail in your project and you want to mount this in an enclosure.

Industrial Enclosure assistant interface

The Industrial Enclosure interface is separated in four sections. At the top side you can define global parameters for your assembly such as the protection degree.

In the mid area you have a 3D preview of the current set enclosure and the functionality buttons.

At the bottom side you can switch between the different sides and see the objects you added to them. Further you can add your terminal rails here and select the specific enclosure which fits your needs.

With the functionality buttons you can add accessory, drillings and threads to your active side.


Suggested workflow

To avoid any problems regarding space we would recommend starting by building up your electrical components on one or several terminal rails.

Start with the configuration of your electrical components and to build up your terminal rail in the standard way of the WMC. If you are registered for the Configure to Order service and want to use this for your project you should start with one of the enclosure specific filter settings.

If you are done with your electrical configuration please start the Industrial Enclosure assistant.


In the Industrial Enclosure you set the global parameters and proceed with the definition of objects on the different sides. Add your accessory, drillings and threads.


Afterwards select your terminal rails you created before in the Mounting rails tab.

The last step is to specify your enclosure in detail. Go to Properties and wait for the configurator checking all possible enclosures for your application.

If you select an enclosure it will be locked and you can see it in the preview. The assistant won’t change the enclosure automatically anymore when it is locked by your selection.

If you are ready with the assembly you can confirm everything with the OK button and your project will be completed and transformed.

Signal wiring


The Signal wiring assistant is used to help you compile an assembly for signal wiring. In the main window
you can set the number of signal terminals and blocks. Further, you can define if you need a supply terminal and how many signal counts per terminal you want.
There is also the option of selecting whether signal wiring assembly has an integrated protective conductor and a potential P. This assistant also allows you to automatically mark the assembly with markers.

Control current circuit supply


Control current circuit supply

The Control current circuit supply assistant can be used to provide you a quick solution for your application. In this assistant you can define the number of +/- potentials and the amount, of blocks. You can also choose between different cross-sections, a grouped or alternating setup with or without functional earth. Furthermore, you can automatically mark the assembly with markers.


Control current circuit with fuse

In the Assistant for Control current supply with fuse you can configure the general setup of your assembly Grouped or Alternating. You can decide if you need a Functional Earth and set the number of fuses. You can automatically mark the terminals with predefined marking patterns.

In the Product list all fuses are listed with its specifications. Here you can change the settings for each fuse. You can choose between different version with or without LED, different rated voltages and if you want to use a fuse with a disconnect function. Furthermore, you can choose how many +/- disposals you need for the fuse.

Patch distributor with fuse protection


The main window Gives you the possibility to set the number of signals/potentials, redundancy signals/potentials and blocks. You can also choose if you want an alternating array and if the assembly is compiled with system cabling or not.


In the tab terminal configuration, you can specify the first function between feed-through terminal and test-disconnect terminal and if the assembly is compiled with an integrated protective conductor or not.

Patch Distributor


In the main window of this assistant you set the mounting rail on which the assembly should be compiled and which product type it should be.

Please note that you can only choose the type of the mounting rail if you start the assistant directly from the WMC start menu.
You can also set the number of levels, terminals, potential, connections and blocks. In the second tab you can define arrangement and colours of your terminals and their operational elements. With these options it is possible to create a clearly structured assembly which fits your needs.


In the third window, Terminal block designation, you can set the block designation and the marking of modular terminals and marking of marker holder/ partitions.

Heavy-duty connectors


The heavy-duty connector assistant gives you a guided configuration for our heavy-duty connectors.

You can either start by choosing a housing for your connector or by designing the inside.

If you start by choosing the housing you will only be able to add in modules and inserts which are compatible with your selected enclosure.

The housing will than be locked for your configuration. If you want to unlock your selection click on the little locked icon.


If you start by designing the inside of your connector the assistant will automatically propose an appropriate housing.

Your inside can be chosen from a modular system or fixed pole inserts with the desired contacts.

If you are done with your configuration you can confirm everything with OK and your complete project will be built up.

Assembled enclosure (ex certified)


The assistant for ex certified enclosures supports you to find solutions for your specific ex environment.

The assistant can only be started from the start menu of the WMC.

At first you have to set your ex environment parameters which define a valid portfolio for your application. Fill in your parameters and confirm it with OK.

After your confirmation you can start either by selecting a mounting rail and configure your terminal rail or an enclosure.

In case you choose to start with a mounting rail you must use the enclosure assistant if you are ready with your terminal rail configuration.

The complete portfolio of the WMC will now be restricted to your selected parameters so that the software only gives you articles which are valid for your ex environment.

The ex certified mode of the WMC will be indicated by an ex icon on the right side of your 3D working area. By clicking on this icon you can see your chosen parameters at any time.

Please note that you can not change these parameters after a confirmation. If you need other parameters you have to restart the assistant on the start page.

If you are ready with your configuration you can request an individual offer for your ex certified enclosure.
