Subsequent extensions or special requests, such as guiding liquid media outside but still close to the interface, are often time-consuming and involve a great deal of effort. This in-house development of the snap-on-carrier can simply be clicked onto an existing igus Module Connect connection in order to attach other components, such as additional cables or pneumatic hoses to the interface in parallel or at a later date.
This means you have all transfer points clearly secured in one central area - and without any tools at all, as the snap-on-carrier was deliberately designed for tool-free assembly. Convince yourself and ask here online for a free sample part straightaway.
In the case of maintenance, igus has provided a plug-and-play system to enable quick maintenance. Previously, maintenance work took about four hours, which could often only be carried out by two employees. A replacement of the energy supply system now takes about 45 minutes with just one person using the new interface concept, the Module Connect from igus.
GHD Hartmann is one of the first customers to use the Module Connect connector. End customers of GHD Hartmann easily replace the energy supply with the plug-in connector from the modular system.
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 to the machine and avoids long downtimes.
For example, in an automatic parking system where the car is weighed and measured by the system and then automatically moved to a suitable parking position.
Where the automation of machines and industrial plant is concerned, there is a whole series of different reasons to decide in favour of pre-assembled energy supply systems.
Manufacturing costs decrease, sources of errors are practically excluded. Less project planning work is needed whereas reliability increases. Possible areas of use are in assembly/installation engineering and handling technology, in conveyor technology or in mechanical engineering.
For users who want to configure their individual interface themselves, there are now Module Connect sets with three or four cable inputs.
They consist of carrier housings, connector housings, sealing inserts and strain relief. Accessories, such as single and double locking devices and fixing elements, can be ordered to match the application. Contact inserts for individual configuration are also available at igus!
Thanks to the simple modular design, a unique plug-in/disconnect point can be configured as a single module consisting of several different connector housings. Each housing can be fitted with up to four different connector inserts.
The housings can then be joined together, making an almost unlimited number of module variations possible in terms of individual widths and height. Due to the low-profile housing design, the Module Connect saves a lot of space and enables a high contact density for every application.
For the production of machines and equipment, there are many good reasons to decide in favour of pre-harnessed energy supply systems:
The Module Connect adapter joins the Module Connect plug-in connector and the energy chain together to form a composite assembly.
