DVT and Phoenix Contact Establish Partnership

Published: Monday, December 1, 2003 - 22:00

DVT Corp., an integrated machine vision provider, and Phoenix Contact Inc., a provider of industrial connection, packaging and communications technologies, have formed a strategic partnership.

Under the terms of the alliance, Phoenix will brand label a power supply and Ethernet I/O assembly to be used with DVT’s Legend SmartImage vision systems. "This is another important step in providing our customers with a complete machine vision solution," says Jim Jordan, DVT’s director of operations. "This partnership is a natural fit--not only for our two companies but for the market as well," adds Dave Skelton, director of automation at Phoenix Contact.

Phoenix Contact will provide an industrial-strength DIN rail-mountable power supply that features an easy-to-assemble connection method to enable quick device connection. The preassembled I/O rail assembly has Ethernet Modbus/TCP protocol with eight built-in digital inputs and eight digital outputs.
