RS provides customers with the latest, innovative products
RS Components is the first distributor to be awarded the first-to-market rights for the introduction of the new PSR-TRISAFE, CONTACTRON and power supplies by Phoenix Contact, a leading manufacturer of electrical components and system solutions for industrial and device connection, automation, electronic interface and surge protection.
The new and improved range, launched at the Hanover Fair is available now from RS across Europe, with a global launch to follow shortly. These are the latest products in the Phoenix Contact range that offer customers the most innovative solutions to keep their operations safe.
“Phoenix Contact is pleased to co-operate with RS in the distribution of our new product lines,” said Frank Stuehrenberg, Executive Vice-President Global Sales and a member of the Phoenix Contact Executive Board. “RS´ broad customer base, speed to market and our quality range of products allow both RS Components and Phoenix Contact to expand their market opportunities. With RS’ high level of service and our focus on innovation, this is a partnership enabling us to meet customers’ requirements now and in the future.”
The new Phoenix Contact products have been designed to push the boundaries of innovation. The CONTACTRON motor manager permanently monitors the motor’s effective power. It immediately identifies critical overload / under-load statuses of the motor and gives advanced warning against failures, thus protecting the system and optimising service intervals at the same time.
With their leading technology and high quality, power supply units by Phoenix Contact reliably supply power to the control cabinet. The new and highly functional QUINT POWER SFB with 40 A output current offers SFB (Selective Fuse Breaking) technology and preventive function monitoring in a 96mm wide housing. If the standard thermal-magnetic circuit-breakers up to B25 / C13 are tripped, critical operating conditions are reported before an error occurs.
PSR-TRISAFE is the new configurable safety module. With just one safety switching device, the user can realise the monitoring of the entire safety circuit of an application. With the introduction of new machine safety guidelines and standards by the end of 2009, the PSF-TRISAFE supports the user in every step of implementing the new safety requirements.
Ann-Marie Bosworth, Head of Process Control and Automation at RS Components explains: “We are delighted that Phoenix Contact has chosen RS Components to be first-to-market with their new products. We are committed to working with leading brands to bring customers the newest technologies.”
