Reliable interface for blind plugging of modular connections

February 2022
Enclosures, wiring and connectors

The new docking frames of the Phoenix Contact Heavycon product family allow quick installation and maintenance of push-in systems and other applications where interfaces are not visible.

Protruding guide elements enable blind and reliable contact establishment. The male and female sides are aligned together due to the floating mounting of the frames. A significant advantage is the easy assembly of the frames with modular contact inserts, which are simply inserted thanks to their locking springs. Custom, compact interfaces can be created by combining a wide range of transmission media into a single host frame.

The extensive product range of modular contact inserts in the Heavycon product family includes the ideal inserts for signal, data, power and compressed air transmission for every application. The heavy-duty die-cast zinc docking frames are touchproof and available in market standard sizes from B6 to B24, with two to six slots.
