The ideal cabling solution
In machine systems with conventional cabling, lines from the sensors and actuators are routed centrally to a main control cabinet. Large cable cross-sections are usually used to compensate for voltage losses due to long distances between the central control cabinet and the sensors and actuators. This results in large bundles of cables both in and in front of the control cabinet, which means a lot of work during commissioning and an increased likelihood of errors.
Cabling work is demanding in systems with a central control cabinet, and this can be significantly mitigated by using OCA technology and hybrid cables. The control cabinet is completely eliminated by relocating decentralized connection points directly into the individual devices of the system. This future-proof technology is ideal for ensuring space-saving, well-organized, and maintenance-friendly distribution of data and power cables, as well as for connecting sensors and actuators.
Cabling is an important part of machines. The reliable function of the cables and connectors should be guaranteed, especially in systems with large cable bundles, in order to avoid failures and downtimes.
Modules for direct I/O field installation provide the basis for simple plug-and-play solutions: Efficient cabling minimizes potential for error. The starting point is One Cable Technology (OCT).
One Cable Automation (OCA) for the entire field level: One-cable solutions can have a positive impact at almost every level and device: Communication and supply through a single line saves space, time, and money. The machine footprint is reduced.
