Phoenix Contact's new Duplicon power distribution system is a stackable plug connector system that meets ingress protection category IP67. Designed for energy distribution in large-scale machinery and systems, Duplicon is claimed to be the first product of its kind to offer uninterrupted communication from the mounting rail in the control cabinet across the decentralized power distributor to the device connections in the field.
The Duplicon connector has six positions plus ground in 24 to 12 AWG for 600V/25A for power, 24V and ASi bus. Duplicon inserts use universal screw-connection technology and are compatible with Phoenix Contact's ST-COMBI plug connectors. Direct PCB connection on the device is available in 90degree and 180degree models, which eliminates the need for one switching level.
A removable cover makes it easy to conduct an inspection during operation, and a square design allows for flexible cable connections in 90-degree increments. Duplicon's sturdy housing design in die-cast aluminium is resistant to salt water, vibration, UV exposure and extreme industrial conditions.
