First Prize For The Environmental Case System (ECS)

ei awardsThe 2nd annual Electronics Industry Awards took place at the Tower Hotel, London at the end of June, where leading figures from the electronics sector gathered to celebrate their achievements and reward the market leaders.

For the second year running, Phoenix Contact was awarded Enclosure Product of the Year accolade, this time for the Environmental Case System.

Commenting on the win, editor of CIE magazine, Niamh Marriot said:
“Phoenix Contact’s product is hardy. The environmental case system (ECS) is the ideal solution for indoor and outdoor applications as it offers high degrees of protection of IP69K in accordance with ISO 20653. It’s rated to -40 to +100 degrees centigrade, has optional ventilation using an integral pressure mounted membrane and is UV resistant. The ECS also has printed circuit board (PCB) retention safety clips to prevent the PCB from falling out when the faceplate is disconnected from the enclosure, which is particularly beneficial when the unit is mounted. This is a tough product that faced tough competition. I’m delighted that it has come out on top.”

Gary Nelson, Senior Product Manager for Device Connections at Phoenix Contact UK commented:

“With the introduction of the electronics industry awards it gives us all an opportunity to showcase our latest innovative products to a wider audience and our peers. The fact that the awards are voted for by the industry helps create awareness of highlight product launches and drives greater brand awareness.

To win an award against your peers is an honour and a reflection of how committed we all are to continue to innovate as manufacturers to meet the industry needs.”
