Power Distribution Upgrade

Power Distribution Upgrade


 

1. INTRODUCING THE UPGRADED POWER DISTRIBUTION RANGE
 

The delivery of all Power Distribution products as a complete kit will simplify the work of our customers, and the launching of the new modular system will optimize the Power Distribution portfolio.

Delivery of Eldon Power System kits

Eldon Power System products are built up by components based on part numbers. By using part numbers, customers need to handle many components to complete one item number.

To overcome this challenge, Eldon will provide Eldon Power System products in complete kits (with item numbers) instead of using part numbers.

The drawing below is for the item number MSFP1800, which represents the same product as the part number, but it includes the profiles (2 pcs 0889012203) and the required screws (20 pcs 7977111381) for the mounting.

Example: MSFP1800 = 2 pcs 0889012203 + 20 pcs 7977111381 

 

 

Launching of the new Modular system

The existing portfolio comprises two modular systems with different dedicated accessories to cover the power distribution solutions. One for the industrial range, and one for the Eldon Power System range.

Industrial range                                           Eldon Power System range               

To improve efficiency and optimize manufacturing, Eldon is now launching one unique modular system, suitable for Wall Mounted and Floor Standing enclosures, which will be integrated into the Eldon Power System (EPS) range.

Launching of the new Modular system: 

1. Panel builders can hold less stock and engineer with fewer item numbers, because of a unique Modular system integrated in Eldon Power System (EPS).

 

2. Manufacturing and logistics efficiency will be improved, since there are fewer item numbers.

 

3. The product portfolio will be easier to grasp, since the mounting accessories now are compatible with all different section types (Incoming, Modular and Fix system):

 • The mounting plate MSMPN can be mounted in an incoming section, modular system, or fix system.

• The plain front panels MSMBP can cover subsections in an incoming section, modular system, or fix system.

• The slotted front panels MSMCP can be installed in a modular system, or fix system.

 

4. Additional possibilities:

• New adjustable brackets, MSMPA01, for the modular and fix system mean that less stock can be held by using the same accessory to adjust a mounting plate, MSMPN, or a DIN rail, MSDR, in depth. 

• New hinges for the modular system, which convert screwed panels in hinged panels make maintenance work easier, since only one accessory, MSMH02, is required.

7. FAQ

Delivery of Eldon Power System kits

Question Answer
What can I do if I already have stock of Eldon Power System products as part numbers? You can use the part numbers (components) in your assemblies until you run out of stock, since the product itself has not been changed.
 
How do I order the EPS item numbers?

If you know the item number you proceed to order as usual.

If you do not know the item number you can either find it in section 6 of this landing page, through the cross link part numbers vs. item numbers or by using Eldon’s new Power Distribution Catalogue.

The price  of the number will be increased 5% on average above the price of the components related item number, excluding the mounting screws. 
Why will the price be increased?
 
The EPS products will be delivered as a complete kit, so the storage will be easier because the kits include also the required screws packaged.
 
Will my panels comply with the new standard IEC 61439 if I use Eldon Power System products?
 
Eldon will provide a certificate of compliance with the new standard.
How I can design a panel with the Eldon Power System? Eldon will provide an Eldon Power System Manual to help you design the panel. You may also design a complete project using the Eldon Power System software.
 
What is the easiest way to request a quotation? By using item numbers instead of components allows for using the Eldon Power Distribution Software in order to design a power distribution project and create a complete quotation.
 
   
   
   
Launching of the new modular system  
   
Question Answer
How do I order new accessories? New accessories can be ordered using the cross link current modular system vs. new modular system that you can see in section 6 of this landing page, or by using Eldon’s new Power Distribution Catalogue.
 
Are the accessories of the current modular system of the Industrial Portfolio (AMM XXX MD4, MBP XXXX R5 and MCP XXXX R5) compatible with the new modular system frames MSMSM and MSMSF?  

No, you cannot mount these accessories in the new frames.

These accessories will be replaced by the modular system accessories of the EPS portfolio. You should take the following into consideration:

- AMM XXX will be replaced by MSMPN XXXX: The useful area of the mounting plate MSMPN (453 and 653mm) is higher than the useful area of the mounting plate AMM (343 and 543mm).

- MD4 will be replaced by the new MSMPA01: Both brackets allow to adjust the mounting plate in depth, but MSMPA01 can be used also to the DIN rails in depth.

- MBP XXXX R5 will be replaced by MSMBP XXXX R5:  The useful area of the plain front panel MSMBP (483 and 683mm) is higher than the useful area of the plain front panel MBP (471 and 671mm).

- MCP XXXX R5 will be replaced by MSMCP XXXX R5: The number of modules that you can install in MSMCP (25 and 36 modules) are greater than in MCP (24 and 35 modules).

Can I install the current mounting plates MSMP in the new modular system frames MSMSM and MSMSF?

No, the current mounting plates MSMP are wider than the new mounting plates MSMPN, and cannot be mounted in the new modular system frames, MSMSM and MSMSF.

Can I install the current mounting plates MSMP in the vertical profiles MSFP?

Yes, the vertical profiles, MSFP, not been changed. So, if you have stock of the current mounting plates, MSMP, you can mount in the vertical profiles, MSFP.

Can I convert screwed front panels MSMBP and MSMCP in hinged panels in a modular section type?

Yes, you do not need dedicated hinged front panels. You can convert the screwed panels using the hinges MSMH02.

The hinges are only compatible with the new modular system frames MSMSM and MSMSF, so you cannot mount them in the front cover profiles MSFCP.

How I can use the new brackets MSMPA01?

The new brackets MSMPA01 can be used to adjust a DIN rail (MSDR XXXX / MSMCP XXXX R5) or a mounting plate MSMPN XXXX in depth.

For how long will replacement accessories that are compatible with the current modular system be available?

Eldon will ensure that the replacement accessories for the current modular system are available until 15th November 2018. The accessories will be gradually phased out and will become available only on request after some time.
