Reduce cost by simplifying wiring

Using a large number of signal conditioning devices in your process? Simplifying wiring can result in significant cost savings – in panels as well as larger industrial installations.


Industrial automation systems often require a large number of signal conditioning devices. Conventional input and output (I/O) methods for wiring include point-to-point connections where wiring networks attach I/O points to a central location. In a typical set-up multiple wires are connected to each field device. Such point-to-point wiring involves costly wiring – which is time-consuming to install and complex to troubleshoot.

Compared to traditional hard wiring, solutions that simplify wiring provide reduced installation costs, simplified connections, increased plant flexibility and reduced commissioning time – which can result in significant cost savings.


Examples of easy-to-install solutions designed to simplify wiring in industrial installations with an installed PR device base are:


Panel installations

The PR power rail for PR 3000 and 9000 devices eliminates the need to daisy-chain the wires.

It also provides a scalable solution – additional PR devices can easily be snapped onto the rail, no tools needed.

Larger industrial installations

You can simplify installation and wiring in larger industrial process installations with the PR backplane.


The PR backplane is a user-friendly and reliable connection between the DCS/PLC system and isolators or barriers, it offers an easy snap on/off feature for device replacement and can be installed on DIN rail or on wall/plate - horizontally or vertically.
