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.
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.
