When industrial robots click into place
With SNAP IN, Weidmüller has introduced an innovative connection technology that is now setting new standards in the field of connection technology and is already optimized for the electrical cabinet construction of the future. This is because SNAP IN enables automatic wiring by industrial robots.7 Sep 2023
Automation and, in particular, robot-assisted wiring will be the central operational focal points in control cabinet construction in the future. With its SNAP-IN connection technology, Weidmüller, the electronics and connection technology company based in East Westphalia, wants to ensure that many terminal blocks, PCB connectors and heavy-duty connectors are already optimized for the automated wiring of the future.
With SNAP-IN, the conductor does not have to be prepared. And the insertion force required is minimal. No specialized tools are needed for either manual or automated wiring. The SNAP-IN technology from the Detmold-based family company also provides an acoustic as well as an optical signal when the conductor is successfully inserted - this is also essential for the successful automated wiring of tomorrow.
In addition to the technical advantages, SNAP-IN consequently also enables a time- and cost-efficient as well as process-safe solution for automated wiring. Adaptation to different products and control cabinets should be highly flexible at any time: In the event of any changes, only a brief adjustment of the robot is required thanks to SNAP-IN. Specialized devices or accessories are not required.
All Weidmüller products equipped with SNAP-IN connection technology are delivered to customers already wire-ready. This means that the products' clamping points always reach the customer open because of their vibration-proof design - they do not have to be opened manually in a time-consuming process.
