- PCB terminal blocks
PCB terminal blocks enable the easy and safe transmission of signals, data, and power directly to the PCB. The space-saving and time saving innovative connection method is ideal for numerous applications in the process industry and industrial environments.
Electronic switchgear and motor control
Combine rugged and durable motor controllers from Phoenix Contact’s extensive product range. Solid-state contactors feature quick and wear-free switching. Motor starters and frequency inverters control motors. In turn, the motor manager protects them against overload and underload.
A wide range of options for shape, colour, and function – this is the central idea behind electronics housings from Phoenix Contact. Whether on a wall or on a DIN rail, from light grey to sky blue, narrow or wide – you will always find the right housing for your electronics here.
- DIN rail housings
Fully flexible when it comes to shape, colour, and function: DIN rail housings are the ideal package for your electronics. They protect the installed PCBs, can be easily mounted on DIN rails, and offer perfectly integrated interfaces for transmitting signals, data, and power.
- HMI components and accessories
Highly automated production processes require user-friendly interfaces between the operator and the machine. Displays, membrane keypads, and light guides turn electronics housings into functional display and operator interfaces. With DIN rail adapters, you can snap these into place on standard DIN rails easily.
