With the new Plug&Play boxes, EVG offers compact and robust control devices for decentralised applications, which are assembled according to individual customer specifications and delivered ready for use.
Powder-coated die-cast aluminium enclosures are available as standard in widths of 57 mm or 82 mm and lengths of 100 mm, 150 mm or 200 mm. The narrow version can integrate up to five, the wider version up to ten RAFIX actuating and switching elements. On request the Plug&Play box is also available with more control units. The freely selectable mounting is provided with RAFIX 22 FS+ and RAFIX 22 FSR pushbuttons and switches from RAFI. The functional spectrum of the series covers all areas of application and ranges from illuminated pushbuttons with protruding or flat bezel, selector switches, keylock switches and mushroom push buttons to various emergency stop pushbuttons (in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13850), illuminated actuators and potentiometer drives. The heavy-duty operating elements of the RAFIX 22 FSR series are recommended for use under adverse weather conditions, severe mechanical effects and high dirt accumulation. Depending on requirements, the Plug&Play box can be used as a handheld, whereby it can be easily attached to metal surfaces with optional magnetic feet on the underside of the housing when it is not in use. Alternatively, mounting clips and brackets from the accessories also allow the box to be mounted on the wall or on 35 mm mounting rails.
Customers also have various options for connection: EVG equips the boxes optionally with M12 connectors, connection cables of any length or with customer-specific cables. They are also in the position to harness or overmold the second side of the cable individually. The robust design with the high degree of protection in IP 65, a good EMC shielding and the use of high-quality switches and pushbuttons ensures high switching reliability. Since the treatment of the enclosures, its assembly as well as the wiring of the components is carried out completely by EVG according to individual specifications, customers receive a tailor-made, immediately usable product for their specific requirements with the Plug&Play box.
