Belden Combines Power, Signal Needs in New Industrial Automation Connectivity SolutionEasy-to-Use Mini Power Distribution System from Lumberg Automation Maximizes System Uptime and Reduces Installation and Maintenance Costs  

St. Louis, Missouri – May 16, 2016 – Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has announced its new modular power distribution system from Lumberg Automation – the Mini Power family. The system features 1-3/8 inch, D-sized mini connectors designed with a quick-connect feature to help machine builders easily set up, maintain and expand industrial automation processes to accommodate current and future system needs.

“We’ve taken the complexity out of power system connectivity. The Mini Power system comes pre-wired and pre-tested – simply connect the components together and flip the switch. We’ve done the work for you, so you don’t have to spend hours or days dealing with the errors that are common in hardwired systems,” said Tim Senkbeil, product line manager at Belden. “The system is also compatible with existing infrastructure, and the connectorized components can be easily replaced. This ultimately helps reduce your total infrastructure costs, from installation to maintenance, and maximizes your system’s uptime.”

The Mini Power family delivers a complete power connectivity solution, and makes it easy to power and connect all system components – from connectors and cordsets, to tees and reducers, to receptables, locking clips, and connector caps.

Machine builders and project managers working in general and automotive manufacturing will benefit from the Mini Power system’s ability to: 

  • Run wire without using a conduit.
  • Easily expand or modify systems through simple, plug-and-play functionality.
  • Withstand harsh environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures, through an IP67 sealed system.
  • Power systems across long distances with 10-14 AWG (American Wire Gauge) cables.
