ELECTRIC.IE • The Magazine & Website for the Irish Electrical Industry • 15 Phoenix Contact Monoblocks with two connection points The so-called monoblocks provide a single passthrough function. With two connection points, they enable the pole-number-accurate and space-saving construction of potential distributions. They are also suitable as flying leads. With the tongue and groove connection, the monoblocks are simply aligned together to form space-saving blocks. Various mounting adapters that can be used throughout the FIX portfolio provide exible mounting options. In addition to adapters for DIN rail and direct mounting, block versions for adhesive mounting are also available. The colorcoded assignment of conductors and terminal points ensures intuitive and safe installation. Each block has at least one test point for all common test probes. Color versions are available in the online store or in the online con gurator of Phoenix Contact. The individual plates are also available as a xed block. These multiblocks are suitable for wiring several potentials in just one block. Engineering software for control cabinet building The specification and filtering of suitable products for a control cabinet project represents a major challenge. The clipx Engineer software includes a digital assistant that provides precise support for electronics designers in identifying and specifying projects. In functional engineering, product groups can be stored in order to create shareable templates and con gurators. These can be easily integrated into any project and adapted to individual use cases. In addition, by using prefabricated projects, alreadyproven product combinations can be acquired and used at any time. This ensures that the products are used appropriately ‒The clipx Engineer software provides increased efficiency. Time and effort in the design process can be reduced through the use of prefabricated projects. and are suitable for the purpose in question. Functional engineering allows the electronics design team to focus on the requirements of the application. Time and effort in the design process are reduced. ‒The new PTVFIX blocks from Phoenix Contact have a lateral conductor connection.
