Using Heavy-Duty Plug Connectors on the Mounting Rail

Heavycon CIFPhoenix Contact’s Heavycon CIF (Connector Installation Frames) mounting frames make it possible to snap Heavycon contact inserts onto a mounting rail quickly.

The increasing use of cable entry systems for control cabinets and switch boxes results in a rising need to contact preassembled plug connectors and contact inserts directly on mounting rails. These new mounting frames were developed for this application.

The robust aluminium die-cast construction is designed to support heavy-duty plug connectors and rigid cables, and meets the functional requirements of Heavycon plugs. The slotted base frame facilitates the use of preassembled contact inserts. A suitable leading PE contact for the housings is ensured, thus meeting the UL standard 1977.
