OVERVIEW DISTRIBUTION BOXES - PRODUCT FAMILY

We offer our robust distribution boxes in various designs. Of course, we are happy to advise you at any time to help you choose the right variant for your requirements:

Distribution Box MSR

This distributor accommodates all components of the MSR technology that are necessary for a floor area. In doing so, we work closely with the MSR contractors on a construction project.

Distribution Box RAU

This covers defined areas with I/Os for the automation of light, blinds and room temperature. All I/Os of a room unit are included and can be supplemented e.g. by power supplies.

DISTRIBUTION BOX RVG

Flexibility in all areas.With our empty housings we offer you the maximum possibilities for your installations. You choose the right housing for you from our standard program and supplement it with flange plates to match your required interfaces.

Distribution Box CPO

Consolidation Points provide the decentralized distribution point to move from fixed to pluggable installation. The consolidation points are available as pure energy or pure data distributors, but also combined. If necessary, it also records FI/LS.

Distribution Box SPZ

The distributor is particularly suitable if it can get a little damp in its environment. If the plastic housing is from a standard delivery program, all necessary components can be installed. 

Distribution Box WIV

This distributor can be used, for example, to quickly electrify exhibition stands and ensure safe, reliable power distribution. Thanks to our gesis® and RST® installation connector systems, the power distributor can be installed according to the plug&play principle.

Distribution Box INS

This variant of the distribution box is used mainly in the field of school renovation/new construction. The service pole is the link between the electrical installation and your requirements for modern room automation.


Further information on the individual variants can be found on the following product pages.

FAQ

What are the advantages of decentralized installation? 
  • Decentralized installation enables fast commissioning thanks to simple project planning and short installation times.
  • Retrofits are flexible thanks to simple and future-proof structures.
  • More net usable space, due to smaller equipment rooms. Thanks to decentralization, the automation electronics are not located in the main distribution.
  • Three-phase power supply up to just before the consumer, this increases energy efficiency.
  • Room automation devices are located in the respective room, fuse elements (MCB/RCB) directly on site.
What is a distribution box 

A system distribution board is a switchgear combination according to IEC 61439. The Wieland system distributors accommodate all required components of the electrical installation as well as building automation on a project-specific basis. The system distributors can be viewed as a black box that provides the appropriate interfaces to the field and management levels.

What do I need to consider during installation? 
  • Unlike conventional installation, you can lay the lines first and install the system distributor at a later time.
  • The robust sheet steel housing protects the sensitive electronic built-in devices even in a harsh construction environment.
  • The manifolds can be mounted on walls, ceilings and floors. For easy mounting, the attachment is made by means of keyholes placed in tabs.
  • The pluggability of the installation makes it fast, easy and safe.
  • Mismating is avoided thanks to the coding of the installation connector systems.
Do the distribution boxes have a CE marking? 

Our system distributors are CE certified.

Can this CE marking expire? 

Opening the system manifold does not invalidate the CE marking. However, if you make changes to the distributor, such as to the conductor cross-sections, the certification will expire.

What tests do the distribution boxes undergo? 

The system distributors are subject to a type test, which includes EMC, temperature, IP, the IK test and the corrosion test. In addition, a routine test is carried out, which consists of a visual inspection, a short-circuit and polarity reversal test and a continuity test.

A functional test can be performed at the customer's request.

How is commissioning, maintenance and repair carried out? 
  • If required, the distributors are delivered to the construction site fully parameterized and can be put into operation directly without any further on-site measures.
  • The functional test is carried out by means of test plugs.
  • The pluggability of our system distributors means that individual components can be easily replaced.
Are the distribution boxes fit for the future? 

Due to our pluggable electrical installation with the gesis® installation connector system, the system distributors can be replaced easily and quickly. The existing infrastructure is used for this purpose.
