DECENTRALIZED ENERGY DISTRIBUTION

The power bus solution with flat cable power bus 

FULL PERFORMANCE – EASY AND QUICK TO INSTALL

Smart automation solutions require innovative installation systems, especially for power distribution. The machines of the future have a modular design and therefore require a flexible, decentralized power supply. With the podis® energy bus system, we offer you an integrated concept for the distribution of energy in machine and industrial plants. It includes supply and distribution modules, maintenance switches, fixed and pluggable power feeders, pre-assembled cable harnesses and a comprehensive range of accessories.

TIME SAVING
No dismantling or uninsulation necessary
FLEXIBLE
Because anytime extendable at any point
SAFE
Permanent high contact quality thanks to the copper displacement technology

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CENTRALIZED AND DECENTRALIZED INSTALLATION

CENTRALIZED installation
– current practice 

Central installation has been state of the art for many decades. It has served its purpose well in industrial automation. Its features include control cabinet fields with controllers, power distribution, motor circuit breakers and motor starters or frequency inverters. Cables connect the control cabinets and the individual drives as well as the sensors in the system or the machine. In extensive systems this creates full cable trays and requires time-consuming installation. When system parts have to be changed or expanded this creates the need for more control cabinet volume. Cables must be installed retroactively throughout the entire system.

Features of central installation:

  • Time-consuming planning and configuration
  • Large control cabinets
  • Long cabling distances
  • Complicated cable trays
  • Difficult commissioning
  • Costly expansions
Centralized Power Distribution

Decentralised installation - the clever solution 

The range extends from pure power distribution via fieldbus connection to motor starters for switching three-phase asynchronous motors. The connection to a fieldbus is integrated in the field distributors or motor starters. Furthermore, there is the possibility to connect additional sensors. The compact design and high protection class IP65 enable optimum integration - even in narrow plant sections. This reduces the planning and configuration effort and creates space in the control cabinet.

Advantages of decentralisation:

  • Simple project planning
  • Short installation times
  • Fast commissioning
  • Flexible changeover
  • Simple extension
  • High plant availability
  • On-site diagnosis
  • Maintenance-friendly plug-in technology
  • Optimal maintenance and servicing
