Cabinet-to-field graphic

A great deal of work goes into laying out the inside of a cabinet. Phoenix Contact offers a wide-ranging assortment of tools designed to help you accomplish that task. What happens, however, long after all that work is done and the time comes to integrate that finished cabinet into a larger system?

In the field, an array of sensors, motors, and other devices may have been brought together and conveniently connected using Phoenix Contact’s selection of field-wiring solutions, but none of that wiring matters unless the connections reach back to a control box.

In both situations, passing the electricity carried over those lines through the cabinet wall is essential. Phoenix Contact is always ready with a wide variety of solutions for “getting through the cabinet” (GTTC).
