RICHMOND, VA (October 2, 2007) - Weidmuller Galaxy Software is an industry first innovation for simplifying the selection process of Weidmuller's new line of rectangular connectors- RockStarŽ. Also included with this new tool is a complete selection guide to Weidmuller's extensive line of over voltage protection products. Customers now have software that can help eliminate the common errors experienced when utilizing extensive online or hardbound catalogs for final product selection.
Weidmuller Galaxy Software features an extensive range of functions, which ensure that users select and order the correct RockStarŽ rectangular connector products for their application needs. Product Search/Cross Reference functions allow for word search, full text search or search by order number- all leading to the correct product, which is listed in configuration matrix for final selection. The search assistant enables product selections based on technical criteria including current, voltage, numbers of poles, connector type and more. Both individual components as well as configured component assemblies are placed in master Bill-of-materials file, saving valuable time during ordering process. And because Galaxy Software performs a continual construction check in the background to prevent incorrect component combinations, users can be confident they are getting the RockStarŽ products they require for their application.
Weidmuller's complete RockStarŽ rectangular connector catalog and the over voltage protection product catalog are both integrated into the software, providing users instant access to product overview information as well as detailed technical specifications. A list of links directs users to additional information such as ordering information, agency approvals, general product data and dimensions. Galaxy offers 3D views of the selected products or component assemblies with grid and zoom functions, print ability, data sheet generation, 2D, 3D CAD and data export functions. Galaxy Software is supported in five languages (English, Spanish, Italian, German, and French) and operates on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista platforms.
