Weidmuller: PROtop – the Powerboost for Your Production Environment


July 16, 2021

Powerful, efficient and sustainable

PROtop combines highest efficiency and compact housings with high durability and direct parallel connection without diode modules. This reduces costs and creates space in the cabinet. Due to the powerful DCL technology, even difficult loads – motors, for instance – are operated smoothly, while circuit breakers are triggered reliably. The good communication capability allows permanent condition monitoring and full integration with control systems.

Your Benefits at a glance

Communication-capable with retrofit solution – CANopen and IO-link communication

Direct parallel connection without diode modules – Integrated ORing MOSFETs in our high power supply units with minimal dimensions and you do not require any additional assembly

Outstanding peak load reserves – DCL technology offers a high pulse reserves
