Weidmuller's New PLC Connection Solution Reduces Interface Inventory
CHICAGO (March 18, 2002) - Weidmuller introduces the new QuickBloc Universal PLC Interface to meet your PLC connection needs. QuickBloc is designed to reduce inventory and investment costs with an innovative one-stop solution, especially where more than one PLC is specified. Now it's no longer necessary to match field interface modules and cables to get the right combination. Just one part number gives you a complete PLC connection solution.
The QuickBloc solution provides a lower-cost alternative to standard passive interface. Terminals, a pre-wired cable with flying leads ready to attach to any manufacturer's front panel adapter, and pre-printed marking tags provide all you need. Weidmuller will be happy to exchange the new front panel adapter provided with your PLC for a pre-wired front panel adapter cable. Ideal for applications where space is at a minimum, the QuickBloc Universal PLC interface is available for 8 or 16 channels, and connects to any manufacturer's PLC with a choice of screw or tension clamp technology for your field connection wiring. If you require fusing, or are connecting analog signals, there are PCB versions that utilize the pluggable cable system. Reduce inventory maintenance costs by utilizing a universal solution that comes boxed and ready to snap on a rail for any control application.
