Why systems accessories for cabling are indispensable
03 February 2021
Switch and control panels protect electrical devices in a 'hostile environment'. They prevent damage from moisture, dust or contact. But that is not enough.
Accessories are often used for ease of use and to make the assembly of panels simpler and clearer. It is important that they meet the same requirements as those that apply to building the panel.
Accessories for VX25 and AX
Various materials are available for the VX25 add-on unit series to keep electrical and pneumatic components separate from each other – think of rail systems, mounting profiles, system chassis and mounting rails.
Non-electrical parts and appliances that do not belong directly to the electrical equipment cannot simply be placed within the housing containing the switchgear. Solenoid valves must therefore be kept apart from other electrical components by placing them in a separate compartment made with rail systems.
System chassis, which are used in the door of the VX25 to make optimal use of cabinet space, can sometimes also be used for the AX wall and floor cabinet series. The same applies to different mounting profiles.
