You can rely on custom rail assemblies with a batch size of 1 that meet your requirements exactly – and reduce your time and effort by up to 92 percent.*

Quality Assurance in Production
When skilled workers are in short supply, any support that simplifies work processes and takes the pressure off employees is welcome. For example, smartDESIGNER allows 3D visualization of the terminal strips or – what’s especially important – the possibility of displaying the circuit and layout diagrams to employees directly, digitally and in a dedicated way.
Display workstations can be used in production, and direct processing of incoming data is possible.
Everyone involved always works from one file – the current one – so (transfer) errors and duplicated efforts can be avoided.
Thanks to versioning and authorization functions, employees see only the part of the plan that is relevant for them, and at the right time.
Paper printouts are no longer necessary.
There is only one point where changes to plans can (and need to) be made, so everyone sees a display of only the correct information, according to the principle of a “single point of proof.”
To avoid order spikes or reduce storage and assembly costs, you can have WAGO produce fully assembled rails – even with a batch size of 1. Just start smartDESIGNER and get to it: Plan, configure and order. And during this process, the entire WAGO product range is available to you – from rail-mount terminal blocks, to power supplies, to controllers, all delivered within a few business days.
One of the biggest challenges in control cabinet manufacturing is accommodating more and more functions in less and less space. WAGO accepts the challenge and develops products that account for this, such as electronic circuit breakers in true 6 mm housings. They provide more space in the control cabinet and reliable protection against overload and short circuit.
