Din-Rail Mountable: Time-Saving Feature for Motor Controls
Din-rail mountable controls can save you time and money by minimizing downtime with easy installation and mounting. When ordering motor control products, one thing that really costs and hinders production is the time it entails to complete the installation and mounting process. The control might come with a complex manufacturer’s kit that features various rack mount accessories and tools, cable, circuit boards, screws or nuts/bolts, etc. If you’re like most production managers, you simply don’t have time to waste on time-consuming installations.
Any downtime for machinery or industrial motors costs your operation dollars by the second!This problem often occurs because the process of putting together mounting kits doesn’t always turn out right..no matter how closely you follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The more steps you have to take to install your new controller, then the more likely you are to encounter problems. With din-rail mountable controls, however, you’ll receive the control circuit or card already neatly assembled on a standardized piece of hardware that’s ready to be mounted on your equipment.
The term “din-rail mountable” simply means that the control manufacturer has taken the extra step to include an all-in-one mounting package, with the bracket, NEMA and/or other protective enclosures, and other items needed to safely and securely mount the control. With the use of a single din-rail mounting bracket, you’ll need fewer bolts, nuts, holes, etc. to get your device mounted properly. You can focus your attention on getting it connected to your equipment for operation rather than trying to mount it! It’s more efficient and even makes servicing the control much easier when future needs arise.
Thanks to industrial automation, there are a number of devices that are din-rail mountable these days, including a vast array of DC and AC motor controls, power supplies, power relays, terminal blocks, etc. Some manufacturers are getting on board with the din-rail mount process and creating motor controls with this in mind. Din-rail mounted products are making it easier for customers to order and install controls without needing to spend out lots of money just for the mounting process.
Considerations when Ordering Din-Rail Mountable Motor Controls
Read the product specifications and features carefully before ordering. Make sure it’s the right fit for your application. You’ll find that most manufacturers use a standard design, but might be able to customize their products to your specifications if necessary. If you’re not sure what type of din-rail mountable product is needed, ask to speak with a qualified sales engineer about your motor control needs.
