Self-Coding Connectors Ensure Maximum Installation Reliability

Especially in the area of measurement and control systems, often a multitude of lines must be protected from surge voltages. With TRABTECH surge protection and the PLUGTRAB PT product family it’s no problem. With a width of only 17.5 mm (1 div.), you can protect up to five signal lines, two double wires or a four-conductor measurement from surge voltages. This means that not only the assembly in the control cabinet remains easy, but even the installation costs are minimized.

PLUGTRAB PT is a seamless concept for practical applications. This product family can be used for a wealth of applications. Thus, PLUGTRAB PT offers the right solution for a variety of applications.

Another enormous advantage is the universal pluggability of the PLUGTRAB PT product family. Thanks to this feature, replacing faulty plugs when servicing is necessary is inexpensive. Even the servicing is considerably simplified. For example, isolation measurements are possible without disconnection or signal influences. The plug guide on the base elements ensures proper insertion and contacting and the plug coding offer maximum installation safety.

Innovative Shielding Concepts

With PLUGTRAB PT, you can choose between direct and indirect ground connection of the shield potential. The different base elements make this possible. For the types PT…+F-BE, the shield potential is indirectly grounded via a gas discharge arrester. Alternatively, the direct ground is available above the DIN rail (PT…-BE). With the optionally available shield fast connection, one can quickly and easily attach the shield to the corresponding screw terminal block.

Test Arresters with the CHECKMASTER

With the CHECKMASTER, the fully automatic testing device for almost all pluggable arresters from Phoenix Contact, you can test and document comfortably. In the international standardization, the test of surge protection devices is becoming more and more important. These tests can be easily and permanently documented with the CHECKMASTER. The results can also be printed on a printer via the serial interface or transferred to a PC for further use.
