Eaton Corporation: Panel wiring solution simplifies panel building

Eaton® SmartWire-DTTM panel wiring solution reduces panel-wiring complexity, improves system reliability, saves installation time and reduces panel space by replacing the many wires found in the control circuit into a single cable.

The system eliminates the time needed to cut, strip, mark, bundle, and check numerous individual wires.  It links standard motor control components within the panel, separate distribution panels or remote control stations, and creates communications enabled devices. Uses an 8-conductor, flat cable located in the control cabinet to connect motorstarters, pushbutton actuators, and indicator lights. The start of the system is a SmartWire-DT gateway, which establishes the connection to standard programmable logic controller (PLC) fieldbuses, including PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen.
