The new Module Connect adapter is specially designed to make the interface concept, Module Connect, and to make the connection of the energy chain with the cables inside it even easier. The harnessed e-chain is an interconnected system and can be installed directly.
The e-chain and the Module Connect are standardized. Depending on the chain series, chain width and number of Module Connect connectors, a matching chain adapter is produced using 3D printing. (The possibility of a plastic injection molding can also be explored.) The adapter is simply assembled to the Module Connect and can be attached to the chain using the snap-in mechanism .
As a result, the entire assembly of a readychain standard including Module Connect is an interconnected system, i.e. pin assignment and cable lengths are clearly defined.
Wherever fast reaction times are required, e.g in the event of a fault the Module Connect adapter ensures fast connection of the energy supply system and avoids long downtimes.
For example in an automatic parking system, where the customer leaves his car for parking. The car is weighed and measured by the system and automatically moved into a suitable parking position.
If there is a downtime due to a cable break in the e-chain or a leakage in the pneumatic hose, for example, every service technician should be able to disconnect the defective energy chain and connect a new, harnessed energy chain. With the adapter this is possible quickly and easily - without the need for basic electronic knowledge.
Module Connect adapters are not only used in automatic parking systems and ensure fast maintenance, but also in production or pharmacy systems and wherever energy supply systems need to be plugged in.
