Murrelektronik Modlink MSDD front panel interfaces

Murrelektronik Modlink MSDD front panel interfaces offer the highest standards of safety and compliance when accessing controls in the cabinet. Here, we explain the merits of our market leading Modlink products and our brand-new USB 3.0 MSDD pass-throughs.

What is an MSDD Modlink?

Murrelektronik Modlink MSDD front panel interfaces make it easy to access controls in the cabinet when it's time for on-site diagnostics and maintenance. The control cabinet stays closed, so you aren’t exposed to live voltage and the components stay within the recommended protection class. Compliance with safety regulations associated with panel entry are easier to meet with the installation of these safety-minded panel interface devices.

Features of the Modlink MSDD

Modlink MSDD interfaces provide convenient access to the controls when diagnostics or service work is necessary. The cabinet door stays closed, so your machine or installation can maintain the recommended protection class and the components in your cabinet are unaffected by the elements in the environment.

Features and benefits:

  • Doors stay closed for diagnostics and service.
  • Protect cabinet components and maintain safety regulations during service.
  • Over 100,000 insert and frame combinations.
  • Interface with embedded RCBO.
  • All international outlets available.
  • Wide range of data connectors.
  • Perfect for global applications with country-specific solutions.

Why choose a Murrelektronik Modlink MSDD?

The new European machine guidelines, EN 60204-1, state that outlets with a nominal current of up to 20 A have to be protected by a residual current protection device. With Modlink MSDD, you simply snap the right RCD into the frame. 

In the US, the machine guidelines for industrial controls in NEC Article 430, and subsequent subsections, require the use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt devices (GFCI) to minimize hazards when using power connections on a control cabinet. Modlink MSDD inserts meet these standards and accommodate touch guard requirements, as well making safe operations possible on the front of control cabinets. 

Murrelektronik Modlink MSDDs feature a modular design with a large range of components and over 100,000 combination options. They are suitable for worldwide applications, with country-specific models and approvals, including cURus. Plus, they are available in various colours, for different machine designs, and come with an intuitive locking mechanism for simple operation.

MSDD pass-throughs with USB 3.0

Fast data import and export from the control in the cabinet is easy with Murrelektronik's USB 3.0 MSDD pass-throughs. Diagnostics and service can be conveniently carried out while the cabinet doors stay closed, increasing operational safety. While mounting is simple, with the pass-throughs fitting into cut-outs with a standard diameter of 22.5 millimetres.

Features and benefits:

  • SUPER SPEED USB 3.0 Technology.
  • USB 3.0 is completely backward compatible. 
  • 10 times data rate up to 5 GBit/s.
  • Full duplex data transfer.
  • Current capacity up to 900 mA.
