Holistic solutions for efficient identification

Clear, easily visible, and permanent identification increases safety and simplifies workflows. All work processes throughout the product lifecycle of a control cabinet can be performed more efficiently if the components are uniformly marked. Up to 30% of the total production time of a control cabinet is spent just printing, separating, and mounting markings. Our marking solutions ensure maximum efficiency in this work step: Marking software, printing systems, and marking materials are perfectly coordinated and intuitive to use.

Your advantages of efficient identification

  • Extensive product portfolio: application-specific identification for every requirement inside and outside the control cabinet using thermal transfer, UV LED, and laser technology
  • A marking software for the management and control of all marking systems from Phoenix Contact
  • Around 60% time savings: The THERMOMARK E SERIES prints and mounts identification solutions automatically on conductors and cables in just one step
  • Full flexibility: system solutions for central identification processes in a marking cell, decentralized marking processes on site or through worker assistance systems

If all identification processes are carried out centrally in a marking cell, it is essential that all marking systems are controlled and managed from one marking software tool. With the help of the MARKING system software, you assign your projects to the printing and marking systems and start the printing processes with just one click. In addition to the common control method via Ethernet, the THERMOMARK E SERIES also offers another advantage. By using the OPC UA bidirectional communication interface, you are informed in real time about the project and operating status of the individual devices. The system can respond quickly in the event of a malfunction, thus minimizing downtimes.

In a sprawling control cabinet manufacturing environment, consistent identification can be costly. With our mobile printing systems, you can make tasks and work processes more independent and flexible. Realize various print jobs quickly and easily right at the control cabinet with the flexible THERMOMARK PRIME card printer, the app-controlled THERMOMARK GO label printer or the robust THERMOMARK GO.K handheld printer.

Worker marks on clipx WIRE assist

Combine our marking systems with the clipx WIRE assist worker assistance system for efficient, ergonomic, and semi-automated conductor and cable processing. The software-supported system guides you step by step through the entire process of semi-automated wire and cable processing, automatically controls the relevant output devices, and provides the necessary information based on the ECAD data. This enables intuitive workflows and minimizes the risk of errors. In project business, the worker assistance system features can be tailored to respond individually and flexibly to the specific customer or application requirements.

Marking software

The marking software enables you to implement your custom-designed marking solutions easily and conveniently. Our marking systems can be controlled and managed centrally from software. With the help of comprehensive functions and design options, tailor-made marking solutions can be realized for any application. With powerful data import functions and interfaces to common ECAD systems and spreadsheet formats, the software ensures efficient marking processes. Seamless processes from planning through to production are ensured by the interface to clipx ENGINEER. In addition, the Wire Marking Application Center provides a representation of the digital twin of your conductor and cable identifications and guides you through the entire process to the finished marked cable.
