Frank Stuehrenberg, executive vice-president of global sales and a member of the Phoenix Contact executive board said the company was pleased with the new distribution arrangement.

He added: ‘RS´ broad customer base, speed to market and our quality range of products allow both RS Components and Phoenix Contact to expand their market opportunities. With RS’ high level of service and our focus on innovation, this is a partnership enabling us to meet customers’ requirements now and in the future.’

The Contactron motor manager permanently monitors the motor’s effective power. It identifies critical overload / under-load statuses of the motor and gives advanced warning against failures.

The Quint Power SFB with 40A output current offers SFB (Selective Fuse Breaking) technology and preventive function monitoring in a 96mm wide housing. If the standard thermal-magnetic circuit-breakers up to B25 / C13 are tripped, critical operating conditions are reported before an error occurs.

PSR-Trisafe is the new configurable safety module. With just one safety-switching device, the user can realise the monitoring of the entire safety circuit of an application. With the introduction of new machine safety guidelines and standards by the end of 2009, the PSF-Trisafe supports the user in every step of implementing the new safety requirements.

Ann-Marie Bosworth, head of Process Control and Automation at RS Components said: ‘We are delighted that Phoenix Contact has chosen RS Components to be first-to-market with their new products.’
