Phoenix Contact is extending its ME-IO housing series to include versions with an overall width of 37.6mm and 75.2mm. The new housings can accommodate PCBs that are mounted vertically and horizontally. They offer a large area on the front for optional displays, operating elements or data interfaces. The L-design versions also enable the easy integration of RJ45 or D-SUB connections for control cabinet installations where space is limited. The housing series is therefore suitable for complex control and communication tasks.
The established housings for I/O modules with an overall width of 18.8mm round off the housing system. Their front connector plugs with Push-in technology make wiring even easier. The connectors with four or six connection positions can be removed individually with the Lock and Release system. They enable the connection of up to 54 positions per module. Optional DIN rail connectors enable efficient cross-communication for the entire module. With over 100 system components, different housing designs, and corresponding accessories such as swivelling marking covers, ME-IO offers device manufacturers a system useful for tailor-made electronics modules.
