Looking for efficient processes, guaranteed?
You can rely on us to deliver
As the number of signals processed within your system continues to grow, more and more importance is placed on flexibility and saving space in your control cabinet. You need connection components with reliable connections. You also need compliance with functional safety, where again reliable signal connections are essential.
This is where we come in. Our diverse range of products for the distribution and processing of signals in technical systems offers you tailored solutions for the specific requirements of your applications.
Already connected in the electrical cabinet: safety and efficiency
Marshalling: high packing density
Today’s control systems are placing ever more complex requirements on automation processes, with greater demands for the monitoring and capturing of operational data. These demands result in an increasing number of field measuring devices. These trends pose new challenges to engineers. On the one hand, the additional signals for automation need to be connected and processed. On the other hand, extra space is associated with increased costs.
These demands are met by our forward-looking marshalling and distribution terminals. The PRV, with its PUSH IN wire connection, is currently the most compact marshalling terminal worldwide. It provides convenient and, most importantly, reliable connections for up to 1700 signals per metre of control cabinet. Its coloured operating elements simplify expansion and maintenance work.

Functional safety: reliable emergency shutdown
Around 20 % of signals in process and energy management are processed in safety-related applications, e.g. emergency shutdown systems. Their task is clearly defined - immediate and automatic initiation of corrective measures, extending up to the shutdown of plants and plant components, in cases of imminent danger.
Weidmüller’s SIL relay is particularly suitable for these tasks and applications. It satisfies low and high requirement rates. It has been certified by TÜV Nord in accordance with EN 61508 for the safety requirement level SIL 3. With a wide-range input voltage in the monitoring circuit of between 24 VUC and 230 VUC, you can activate backup systems with high DC voltages for example.
