Front Connections Grouped Individually

Phoenix Contact is expanding the range of connection technologies for electronics housings from the ME-IO series.
Blockbelts, as they are called, are connection pieces which can be clipped onto the connector block. This allows the user to combine up to six front-connection plugs into one unit.
The mechanical grouping makes cabling the I/O unit faster, since connection plugs are now connected and disconnected as a block, rather than individually like they used to be. The grouping also supports the functional design of the finished module, since the same inputs/outputs (for example, digital/analogue) are combined and, that way, can be identified.
