DECENTRALIZED ENERGY DISTRIBUTION
The power bus solution with flat cable power bus
FULL PERFORMANCE – EASY AND QUICK TO INSTALL
Smart automation solutions require innovative installation systems, especially for power distribution. The machines of the future have a modular design and therefore require a flexible, decentralized power supply. With the podis® energy bus system, we offer you an integrated concept for the distribution of energy in machine and industrial plants. It includes supply and distribution modules, maintenance switches, fixed and pluggable power feeders, pre-assembled cable harnesses and a comprehensive range of accessories.
FLEXIBLE BUS SYSTEM
The podis® power bus is the innovative solution in decentralized power distribution. The system includes feeder and distributor modules, service switches, fixed and plug-in power branches, pre-assembled cable sets and a wide range of accessories.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CENTRALIZED AND DECENTRALIZED INSTALLATION
– current practice
Central installation has been state of the art for many decades. It has served its purpose well in industrial automation. Its features include control cabinet fields with controllers, power distribution, motor circuit breakers and motor starters or frequency inverters. Cables connect the control cabinets and the individual drives as well as the sensors in the system or the machine. In extensive systems this creates full cable trays and requires time-consuming installation. When system parts have to be changed or expanded this creates the need for more control cabinet volume. Cables must be installed retroactively throughout the entire system.
Features of central installation:
- Time-consuming planning and configuration
- Large control cabinets
- Long cabling distances
- Complicated cable trays
- Difficult commissioning
- Costly expansions
