Panel builders gain access to complete range of control products from Phoenix Contact, helping them to save time and money

RS Components (RS) announced the significant expansion of its ‘complete line’ portfolio of products and essential accessories for control cabinet applications from Phoenix Contact, one of the world’s leading makers of industrial automation technologies.

This expansion of more than 2500 new devices means that RS is the first high-service distributor to offer the full ‘complete line’. This means customers will gain full access to a unique portfolio that will help to reduce handling costs and minimise planning and installation times for control cabinet construction and maintenance.

The ‘COMPLETE line’ system comprises an entire suite of coordinated hardware and software products that help panel builders to optimise their work processes in control cabinet development. The system brings together all of the manufacturer’s control panel products and essential accessories in one range, making it significantly easier to purchase, install and operate existing and new control cabinet solutions.

Due to the range’s standardised design, haptics and functionality, along with standardised marking, bridging and testing accessories, the system also results in simple and intuitive handling of all the hardware, saving engineers significant installation, start-up and maintenance time. More than 3000 devices in the ‘COMPLETE line’ range use the same push-in connection technology, helping to reduce connection time by up to 70%. In addition, the manufacturer’s planning and marking ‘PROJECT’ software has an intuitive user interface that makes it easy in the planning, automatic checking and ordering of terminal strips.

Aimed at switching, connection and disconnection, as well as measuring, controlling and automation applications, the extensive portfolio comprises thousands of devices including DIN rails and terminals, PLCs and HMIs and heavy-duty connectors. Highlights include the latest PTFIX distribution blocks with push-in connection, machine safety devices including the latest release PSR series of safety relays and I/O and PLC expansion modules, part of the PLC next ecosystem from Phoenix Contact.

“Making the full COMPLETE line available is fully aligned with our ambition of providing factory automation customers with end-to-end industrial control solutions from build through to maintenance,” said Kristian Olsson, Vice President, Automation & Control at RS. “Our customers will quickly realise the benefits of deploying it, helping them to reduce space and to design and install new control cabinets faster than ever before.”

“We have enjoyed a close partnership for more than 15 years with RS, a long-time distribution channel partner for Phoenix Contact,” said Lars Kleinegees, International Channel Partner Manager at Phoenix Contact. “Through all its various channels, RS offers its large and global customer base with fast and easy access to more than 25,000 products from Phoenix Contact.”

Comprising more than 9000 products, RS is increasing its Phoenix Contact portfolio in all the key areas of building control cabinets. All of the devices in the ‘COMPLETE line’ portfolio are available now from RS.
