The fight-back against installation costs
13 May 2015
A company that wants to be competitive has to produce cost-effectively. The installation costs of many machines and systems are a big pool of costs.
We at Murrelektronik are experts in finding solutions that help you reduce your installation costs. With our plug & play principle, we offer a promising approach to considerably reduce the costs of connecting your systems.
When electrical engineers hear "save money", some think of the material costs. They change components and ask their colleagues from purchasing to negotiate discounts with the suppliers. They are happy when the figure at the bottom line is a bit smaller and the installation still works.
But Murrelektronik knows: you can do better! We do not analyse singular aspects of the installation but analyse all processes: starting from the machine and system planning, to purchasing, logistics, production and assembly, set-up, all the way to follow-up processes like service and diagnostics.
Our solutions help change your view from looking at single measures to considering the complete installation solution. This creates synergy - and this is what saves money in the end
One prime example of this is our connection technology. We recommend: pluggable connections instead of having to tighten them.
The immediate effect: the installation time is reduced. Conventional wiring of single wires requires a lot of patience. Stripping wire, crimping ferrule ends and connecting the single wires to terminal boxes takes a lot of time. With passive distribution boxes this can be done much faster!
Pre-wired valve connectors and connection cables reduce the work that has to be done. If you go one step further and install a fieldbus solution, even the last terminal points are eliminated - the solution is connected all the way through. Experience from shows that the installation time is reduced by up to 80%!
The synergy coming from plug & play is very beneficial. Until now, you had to buy a whole range of small parts. With Murrelektronik, a few components are all you need. Some examples? Fieldbus modules with multifunctional ports, pre-wired cables, transformers with wide voltage input or distribution boxes with integrated ports for safe outputs - all these components replace a lot of small parts. This slims down your ordering processes, the number of different models needed and it will facilitate your inventory.
We call this the CONNECTIVITY approach by Murrelektronik. Our Connectivity specialists optimize our customer's machine and system installations together with them. They find the direct and hidden costs. The integrated approach opens new options across all processes. Plug & Play is the first big step in the right direction!
