Decentralized Power Distribution System

Aug. 5, 2008
The FieldPower universal decentralized power distribution system is designed for industrial machinery applications where there is a need to distribute power over extensive distances via multiple power drops to peripheral equipment such as motors, starters and other electrical devices.
The system consists of multiple all-in-one enclosed PowerBoxes (Standard, XL, Fuse, and On/Off) that incorporate an innovative Insulation Displacement Connection (IDC) system to tap into uncut power cable and maintain an IP 65 rating. Each PowerBox can be mounted at any point on the machine with a continuous, uncut 5-pole power cable placed inside. No pre-packaged cable lengths with connectors are required, says the vendor. Accessories and options include pre-fabricated connection cable assemblies, plug-in connectors, rectangular connectors, wire-end ferrules, IP65 seals, maintenance switches, and installation tools for cutting and stripping wire.
