Murrelektronik fights the installation costs
Of course it's no surprise that conventional wiring takes longer than connecting pre-wired cables. But did you really know how big the difference is? At the Hannover Fair, Murrelektronik highlighted the difference between conventional wiring versus its pre-wired cables in a live demonstration that showed how much money you can really save.
A company that wants to be competitive has to produce cost-effectively. The installation costs of many machines and systems are a big pool of costs. Murrelektronik is expert in finding solutions that help you reduce your installations costs. With its plug and play principle, the company offers a promising approach to considerably reduce the costs of connecting your systems.
When electrical engineers hear "save money", some think of the material costs. They change components and ask their colleagues from purchasing to negotiate discounts with the suppliers. They are happy when the figure at the bottom line is a bit smaller and the installation still works. Murrelektronik, by contrast, does not analyse singular aspects of the installation but analyses all processes - starting from the machine and system planning, to purchasing, logistics, production and assembly, setup, all the way to follow-up processes like service and diagnostics.
Murrelektronik's solutions help change your view from looking at single measures to considering the complete installation solution. The company says this creates synergy - and this is what saves money in the end.
One prime example of this is Murrelektronik's connection technology - pluggable connections instead of having to tighten them, so reducing installation time. Conventional wiring of single wires requires a lot of patience. Stripping wire, crimping ferrule ends and connecting the single wires to terminal boxes takes a lot of time. With passive distribution boxes this can be done much faster. Pre-wired valve connectors and connection cables reduce the work that has to be done. If you go one step further and install a fieldbus solution, even the last terminal points are eliminated - the solution is connected all the way through. Experience shows that the installation time is reduced by up to 80%.
The synergy coming from plug and play is very beneficial. Until now, you had to buy a whole range of small parts. With Murrelektronik, a few components are all you need. Examples include fieldbus modules with multifunctional ports, pre-wired cables, transformers with wide voltage input or distribution boxes with integrated ports for safe outputs - all replacing a lot of small parts. This slims down your ordering processes, the number of different models needed and it will facilitate your inventory.
