DUPLICON Plug Connectors Provide Continuous Power Distribution

November 8, 2006

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. -- Phoenix Contact's new DUPLICON Power Distribution System is a stackable plug connector system that meets protection category IP67 standards. Designed for energy distribution in large-scale machinery and systems, DUPLICON is 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 90-degree and 180-degree models, which eliminates the need for one switching level.

DUPLICON's sturdy housing design in die-cast aluminum is resistant to salt water, vibration, UV exposure and extreme industrial conditions.
