Intelligent plug-in connector


Intelligent plug-in connector

An intelligent plug-in connector is presented by Weidmüller. The smart plug-in connector integrates sensor and diagnostic functions, which opens up completely new application fields and makes additional sensors superfluous.

Measured variables like current, voltage, power and temperature can be measured, saved and evaluated with an app, an ERP/SCADA system or a cloud. The smart plug-in connector was created as part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funded project: "Intelligent electric plug-in connector and connection technology with electronic signal processing (ISA)".

The plug-in connector serves for power supply, signal and data connection on the SCADA or ERP level. Integrated sensors measure current, voltage, power, and temperature.A piezo-based miniature system acts as a plugging cycle counter. The number of cycles is saved in a non-volatile memory. On attaining the defined maximum number, a visual indication appears, and the value can be read contactless using an RFID interface.
