SmartWire-DT panel wiring reduces wiring complexity, improves system reliability, cuts installation time, and reduces panel space. Transforming the way OEMs build control panels, the solution replaces the myriad of wires found in the control circuit into a single cable, connecting motor-control components to programmable logic controllers. The SmartWire-DT system significantly reduces the wiring effort required to build panels, as it eliminates the time needed to cut, strip, mark, bundle, and check numerous individual wires. The panel-wiring development uses an eight-conductor, flat cable located in the control cabinet to connect motor starters, pushbutton actuators, and indicator lights. The start of the system is a SmartWire-DT gateway, which establishes the connection to standard PLC fieldbuses, including PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen.
