Weidmuller USA, a leading provider of smart industrial connectivity and automation products and solutions headquartered in Richmond, Va., introduces new Klippon Connect W2C and W2T Range signal wiring and signal marshalling terminal blocks that offer flexible solutions for complex production processes.

Signal marshalling ensures the reliable connections of complex field signals to I/O systems in modern industrial plants. The single and double-level arrangement of Weidmuller’s DCS marshalling terminal blocks, combined with the provision of the four basic functions (fuse, feed-through, disconnect, and ground), enable users to achieve maximum flexibility when connecting their devices wired in the field.

“Our marshalling terminal blocks solve a variety of automation challenges, including the ability to make a last-minute change without having to change the wiring that has already been set up,” said Carlus Hicks, Director, Cabinet Products Division for Weidmuller USA. “We also offer customers an alternative to connecting the shield to PE for potential-free shielding concepts.”

Hicks noted that these Klippon Connect marshalling products feature standardized test points which make automated testing and checking processes possible. “In this way, maintenance and testing tasks can be carried out much more quickly and safely,” he said. “From planning through installation and operation, the unique features of our new marshalling blocks add value throughout the complete process.”
