16 January 2015

The FrontCom Vario is a new, compact service interface from Weidmüller for switch and control cabinets, designed to allow easy access to the control system/PC and electronics. 

FrontComVario offers a smart service interface with high functional flexibility and a multitude of possible combinations, and which takes up half the space of the current market standard.

High machine and system availability is a general requirement. To achieve this, a technician must be able to quickly access the controls or functional electronics in the cabinet. 

Selective cabinet security functions and harsh environmental conditions can prevent the cabinet from being opened directly during production. The protected service interfaces (IP 65) on the cabinet and/or allowing for the connection of diagnostic hardware using a data cable or an optional power cable and gain direct access to defined processes from outside.

FrontCom Vario ensures efficient and highly available processes, enabling permits fast and customised access when needed. A service interface also reduces the risks of incorrect operation in the control cabinet interior, prevents accidents and does not impair the degree of protection offered by the cabinet and/or housing.

The space savings come from FrontCom come from the integration of several functions in a space-saving single frame instead of using a double frame. The installation cut-out is compatible with the 52 x 91 mm market standard, while the IP65 housing is impact-resistant.

Weidmüller also provides an online configurator for the selection of  suitable interfaces on the Internet from the more than 5,000 FrontCom Vario combinations.
