WIELAND EXPANDS PODIS ENERGY BUS SYSTEM WITH 16MM2 MODEL
The podis® energy bus system from Wieland Electric offers a smart installation solution for the decentralized power supply of large machines and extensive plants. To be able to cover an even broader scope of application, the system has been expanded with the new podis® CON 5G16 with 16mm2 cross-section. It is designed for a current capacity of up to 63 A and therefore able to supply even higher loads than before on a flat cable section. This means that the main distribution of a conveyor line, for example, can be installed very easily. Supply lines and main distribution cabinets can be mostly avoided or can be reduced and decreased in size. This in turn improves the flexibility in the design of the plant.
Like the other podis® systems, the new podis® CON 5G16 offers the benefits of a coordinated interaction of connection modules with insulation-piercing contacts and the relevant flat cable. As taps can be positioned anywhere any time, the electrical installation can be adapted to changing requirements easily, flexibly, and quickly. The area of application of the podis® system ranges from intralogistics and conveyor technology to mechanical engineering and plant construction, and through to production lines for foodstuffs and the automotive sector. The UL system approval ensures time savings and reduced inspection effort for exporting companies when seeking approval of their electrical installations.
