Termination carriers are compact solutions for quickly and smoothly connecting DIN rail devices from the MACX Analog Ex series to input and output cards of automation systems.
Connect the termination carriers to your controller quickly and smoothly using pre-assembled VARIOFACE system cabling – Plug and Play.
You can therefore combine the advantages of modular DIN rail devices with those offered by plug and play system cabling to create a consistent solution for system technology.
Save up to 30% space compared to other solutions on the market:
With the termination carrier, you can install up to 384 channels in an 80 x 200 cm control cabinet – when using 2-channel MACX Analog Ex devices.
The termination carrier is particularly robust:
Modular power concept
The signal conditioners are connected to a separate power and error message module via integrated DIN rail connectors.
As such, the PCB is terminated in a passive manner – it does not contain any active components whose failure would require the termination carrier to be replaced.
The separate power and error message module offers additional advantages:
Only standard DIN rail devices are used on the termination carrier, special devices are not required.
This makes the termination carrier particularly easy to maintain:
In addition to the universal termination carriers with 1:1 pinning and optional HART signal decoupling, other control-system-specific versions are available, are being planned or can be implemented by us in accordance with your specifications.
The universal termination carriers can be used to connect up to 16 MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners to the input and output cards of automation systems.
Connect the termination carriers to your controller using pre-assembled VARIOFACE system cabling – quickly and smoothly.
The cables have high-position numbers of channels and both standardized and controller-specific connections, e.g., for:
Many process technology systems have areas where potentially explosive atmospheres may occur. As such, measuring and control circuits are designed with intrinsic safety protection type Ex i.
MACX Analog Ex i signal conditioners and measuring transducers isolate intrinsically safe circuits from non-intrinsically safe circuits at interface level. They safely limit the energy supplied to the Ex area and also perform extensive tasks for signal conditioning.
Fast installation and startup with plug and play system cables
In the Ex area, cables from intrinsically safe field devices are grouped together via distribution boxes to form multi-strand master cables. In the non-Ex area, they are then routed to the interface level via marshalling panels. From here the signal conditioners are individually wired to the relevant I/O cards.
The significant amount of time needed for installation and startup is greatly reduced by the termination carrier – thanks to the use of plug and play system cables.
