MaxGuard for control voltage distribution

Weidmüller is showcasing the pioneering connectivity solution for efficient planning, installation and operation. As part of the Klippon Connect product portfolio, Weidmüller is offering maxGuard and is therefore consistently further developing control voltage distribution. maxGuard provides load monitoring and potential distribution in one complete solution that is convincing, efficient and innovative. maxGuard is an application product that is matched to the specific requirements in panel building.

Generally speaking, fail-safe and maintenance-friendly control voltage distributions that can also be installed in a time and space-saving manner are therefore, a must for efficient machine and facility operation. The new maxGuard system integrates the potential distribution terminal blocks (that were previously installed separately) in the electronic load monitoring’s outputs as a complete solution in a 24 V DC control voltage distribution component. A new combination of load monitoring and potential distribution such as this saves time during installation, increases safety against failure and reduces the amount of space required on the terminal rail by up to 50 per cent.

maxGuard is characterised by its ease of servicing. Operating, testing and connection elements developed for the panel building application permit safe access to all voltage potentials and load circuits during commissioning and maintenance activities. maxGuard can be used in a customised way. The range of variants and the different potential distribution terminal blocks and additional components enable customised solutions at all times. The integrated test points in the maxGuard control voltage distribution’s input and output have proven themselves to be user-friendly, as they speed up troubleshooting. For testing and checking purposes, the potential distributors have practical disconnecting levers for simple galvanic isolation of the load circuit. maxGuard is also equipped with cross-connectors that are unique on the market, so it reduces the time and effort needed for wiring due to cross-connections between load monitoring and potential distribution terminal blocks. The new control voltage distribution system has a space-saving design – electronic load monitoring elements and distributors have a 6.1 mm pitch.
