Custom Interface Modules Centralize User Control

According to Dinkle International, its custom interface modules eliminate the costs of designing and building an interface module in-house. The company offers many terminal blocks and related components such as pluggable terminal blocks, and provides design and build services for custom interface modules. Printed circuit board (PCB) interface modules provide a means to connect field wiring to internal control and monitoring components. They can also be used wiring up a plethora of internal components.


When an interface module is needed, an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) can design and build it internally, or engage a supplier. Internal design and build often requires an OEM to learn new skills because the OEM is typically expert at producing its product, such as a compressor, but not at designing and building PCB-based assemblies such as an interface module.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


From the OEM’s maintenance and troubleshooting perspective, because all the terminal blocks used are the pluggable type, the entire PCB can be easily disassembled by unplugging the terminal blocks without loosening the wire connections. This design saves a considerable amount of time if the PCB requires replacement. In addition, there are LED indicators on the PCB to quickly identify a failed connection, speeding troubleshooting.


Dinkle's provides carrying various safety approvals including UL, CUL, CSA, VDE and GB. The material used for manufacturing is compliant with RoHS and REACH environment standards set by EU. For more information, visit Dinkle International.
