Permanent, maintenance free electrical connections

CENTRALIZED versus DECENTRALIZED ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

CENTRALIZED installation
– current practice 

Centralized power and control electrical installation has been state of the art for many decades. It has served its purpose well in industrial automation. Its features include control cabinets filled with controllers, power distribution components, circuit breakers and motor starters or frequency inverters with extensive use of electrical conduit and point to point wiring between the control cabinets, power distribution panels, and the individual drives as well as the sensors in the system or the machine. In large and complex systems, this results in miles of metal conduit and junction boxes requiring time-consuming wire termination and installation. When system expansion or additional functionality is required, this creates the need for more control cabinet volume and even more conduit in an already crowded electrical environment.

Features of central installation:

  • Time-consuming planning and design
  • Large control cabinets
  • Long. multiple conduit runs
  • Many hand wired junction boxes
  • Extensive commissioning and trouble shooting time
  • Costly expansions
Centralized Power Distribution

DECENTRALIZED INSTALLATION - THE SMART SOLUTION  

The backbone of the podis® system includes a flexible three phase power distribution bus  whichis approved for use in exposed locations (TC-ER rated). It installs quickly and error free with connection modules and integrated cable assemblies to motor starters or other energy consumers in typical factory or logistics environments.  Wiring time, commissioning and electrical layout time is drastically reduced.  

Advantages of decentralization:

  • Simple project planning and design
  • Short installation times
  • Fast commissioning
  • Easy retrofitting, modification and expansion
  • Easy plug and play technology
  • Low maintenance and servicing
