Your space saver for pluggable power distribution: Use the PRC 20 to transmit currents up to 20 A in a minimum amount of space. The device interfaces mounted at the front are available as male and female contacts. Integrated anti-rotation protection ensures reliable alignment in the device panel. You'll thus benefit from clearly structured connection areas as well as more space and greater flexibility when it comes to device design.
- Transmission of high currents up to 35 A in a small amount of space
- Locking that can be released either manually or by using tools ensures greater flexibility during installation and maintenance
- Reliable use under extreme ambient conditions with high degrees of protection and impact resistance
- Simple handling with proven crimp or screw connection technology
- Mechanical and color coding for quick and error-free commissioning
The system at a glance
The products of the PRC series
PRC installation connectors are ideally suited for compact and safe power transmission up to 35 A. High degrees of protection and an impact resistance up to IK08 protect your power distribution even under extreme ambient conditions. The locking can be released either manually or by using tools and ensures greater flexibility during installation and maintenance of your system.
Introducing: PRC 20 Compact installation connectors up to 20 A
With the particularly compact PRC 20 installation system, you can transmit currents of up to 20 A. The system is suitable wherever there is little space available for power distribution. The innovative Duo-Unlock technology, with optional manual or tool operation, also increases flexibility during the installation and maintenance of your system.
Flexibility that really pays off: The new, patented duo-unlock technology offers even more freedom in installation and maintenance. Depending on the conditions and standards on site, decide whether to release the connector by hand or using a bladed screwdriver. No further components are needed for this option thanks to the duo-unlock technology.
PRC 20 is made for extremes. No matter whether for indoor or outdoor use, whether it is hot or cold, dry or wet: With high degrees of protection up to IP69, PRC ensures reliable power distribution even under demanding environmental conditions. An impact resistance up to IK08 makes PRC a robust solution, even when subjected to vibrations or impacts.
The choice is yours: Using the proven screw connection technology you can assemble your cables on site and without the need for special tools. Here you benefit from pre-installed conductor protection so that you are also able to safely connect untreated conductors. Crimp connection technology enables a fast, automated connection wherever you have to assemble cables in large volumes. Choose the solution that best suits your application.
Clever features such as mechanical coding support you for a quick and error-free commissioning. PRC 20 separates versions with different numbers of positions as well as different versions of one number of positions safely and mechanically. The integrated color coding of the different signal types facilitates clear identification on the construction site.
PRC 35 Pluggable installation system up to 35 A
The PRC 35 series installation system is ideally suited for compact and safe power transmission up to 35 A in building, industrial, and outdoor applications. PRC power distribution and cable assemblies eliminate the need for time-consuming wiring in the field. Connect your devices via Plug and Play. Benefit from the high power density of the PRC installation system.
PRC series circular connectors enable reliable connections in building, industrial, and outdoor applications. Thanks to weatherproof materials, a high degree of protection, and shock resistance, the connectors transmit high currents, even in harsh ambient conditions.
Pre-assembled device connectors designed for assembly allow flexible and convenient mounting on the device, whether for front or rear mounting, screw or crimp connection, angled or straight. Plug-and-play on the device saves time and resources.
Pluggable power distributors reliably supply devices with power in indoor and outdoor applications. The distributor boxes are pre-assembled and allow for easy and time-saving installation with PRC series connectors.
Assembled PRC cable assemblies ensure fast commissioning. Using high-quality H07RN-F cables ensures high system availability.
Angled PRC circular connectors offer greater flexibility during device connection. The modular system enables a high number of versions, while helping optimize warehousing. The connectors are assembled using 3- or 5-pos. screw connection heads with pin or socket contact.
The more extensive the installation, the more important a clear overview becomes. Marking accessories in various colors will help you keep a clear overview.
