We recommend end and intermediate plates whenever rail-mount terminal blocks are not completely insulated by housing of the terminal blocks. You should also insert an intermediate plate when switching rail-mount terminal block types if the open rail-mount terminal block side is not completely covered by the following rail-mount terminal block type.

End and intermediate plates not only serve as visual separation – in particular, they also prevent wiring errors and provide reliable touch-proof protection.

Yes – add-ons usually require licenses and are subject to fees.

One e!COCKPIT license allows you to use the engineering software on one computer without limit, regardless of the number of controllers. However, depending on the project, each controller may need its own license for the runtime software.

“Railway compatibility” is a colloquial term for the usability of a product in the railway industry. More concretely, products need to meet the requirements of DIN EN 50155. For electromechanical components, this depends on vibration and shock tests, as well as the operating temperature, among other things. For electronic components, additional EMC tests must be taken into account.

Incidentally: Although DIN EN 50155 has an international counterpart, namely IEC 60751, the German version continues to be the common, globally accepted “railway standard.”

Additional Information Additional Information

The information shown on the side walls of the 221 Series Splicing Connector housing does indeed differ. This is because different approvals apply to different locations of use: IEC and UL/CSA for Europe and PSE/JET for Japan.

Please consider the country in which you will use the 221 Series and the rating data that needs to be taken into account.

No: Our 210 Series Operating Tools are only intended for installation work on de-energized rail-mount terminal blocks.

Therefore, they do not have an approval per DIN EN 60900, which defines the grip properties, blade insulation and VDE and GS test. For this reason, neither the VDE/GS test mark nor electrotechnical rating data is affixed to our operating tools.

No: Universities, polytechnic colleges and comparable educational institutions do not receive site licenses and buy-out licenses, but rather free licenses.

Licenses for engineering software are tied to one computer and licenses for runtime software to one field device, e.g., one controller.
