With FrontCom® Vario, we are offering a new, compact service interface for switch and control cabinets to ensure simple access to the control system/PC and electronics. FrontCom® Vario ensures efficient and highly available processes, and saves both time and money. Without downtimes or the need for additional staff, technicians can perform maintenance work or rectify errors in the production process – the simple and smart way. Authorised personnel can connect diagnostic hardware using a data cable or an optional power cable, for example. FrontCom® Vario is the ideal choice for customers from machine construction, the process industry and power and traffic engineering – and it only takes up half the space of the current market standard.
With the easy-to-install system, users can choose between an extremely diverse range of power, signal and data modules. In FrontCom® Vario, we integrate multiple functions in a space-saving single frame. A distinguishing feature of FrontCom® Vario is the very compact design with outer dimensions of 67 x 133 mm and an installation cut-out of 52 x 91 mm. The attractive housing is impact-resistant and designed to protection class IP 65. The housing cover features large, easily identifiable marker tags. Additional markings can be attached to the inside of any interface. The single frame delivers outstanding security – thanks to both the closing knob and a lock variant, which only grants access to authorised personnel. A magnet on the housing cover is proving to be especially convenient, as it fixes the cover to the metal cabinet wall when opening, allowing you to work with both hands.
FrontCom® Vario offers planning security and equips you for the future – a portfolio of more than 5,000 combinations supplies tailored possibilities for virtually any application or lifecycle in a machine or system. FrontCom® Vario flexibly adapts to extended or changing requirements. The system takes account of a multitude of standards for communication interfaces in different designs, such as RJ45, USB or D-Sub, as well as different country-specific plug systems. As a modular service interface, FrontCom® Vario always offers the perfect combination made up of a single frame, power, signal and data inserts, and the correct insert plate.
Investment security is provided, for example, by the CAT 6A RJ45 inserts from our STEADYTEC® series, which offer maximum performance (CAT 6A = up to 10 GB per second) with the best transmission properties. Touch-safe protection on the interior offers additional marking possibilities for each individual port, allowing each interface to be clearly identified in the cabinet.
We also provide an online configurator so you can find and configure suitable interfaces on the Internet from the more than 5,000 FrontCom® Vario combinations. A storable parts list containing all the individual components can be instantly queried online following the configuration process. http://galaxy.weidmueller.com/frontcom
