Dinkle International has designed and built an interface module to meet the needs of a compressor OEM. The module uses several types of terminal blocks mounted on a PCB carrier.
For this application, as with many others, interface modules are used to reduce installation time, and to facilitate maintenance and troubleshooting.
The compressor OEM determined it would take a great deal of time to install each wire connection from the control side to the related action sides without an interface module, and it would be difficult to ensure each connection was tightened properly.
The interface module has a 44 pin D-sub connector, and a total of 40 poles of terminal blocks, so many connections are required.
The OEM estimated a savings of 50 to 70 percent in installation time by making all of these connections using the interface module.
Dinkle’s products have various safety approvals including UL, CUL, CSA, VDE and GB. The material used for manufacturing is compliant with RoHS and REACH environment standards set by EU.
