The compact design of Heavycon Compact plug connectors from Phoenix Contact supports the trend toward ever-smaller devices in automation technology. The plastic housing is light and particularly well-suited for weight-sensitive applications. The plug connectors are available in straight and angled line inputs for diameters of 9-15 mm. Housing designs include plug, mounting, socket and coupling housing. Along with 8-pin (500V, 16A) and 17-pin (200V, 10A) crimp contacts, a mixed contact model with four power contacts (400/690V / 40A) and two control contacts (250V 10A) is available. Mixed contact plug connectors connect different power circuits in one plug connector. The power supply is connected via the power contacts, and sensor signals are connected via the control contacts. This enables the supply voltage to be fed in over the pin insert, which is protected against accidental contact.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
