SY/Max to Quantum Quick Wiring Adapter (QWA) Frank Prendergast Schneider Electric – Industry System Architect 978-975-9122 firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the Quick Wiring Adapter (QWA) ●Schneider Electric has designed a new Quantum I/O terminal block that SY/Max terminal blocks connect directly inside. ●This allows SY/Max I/O to be quickly converted to Quantum I/O without disturbing field wiring, saving time and money, and reducing downtime. ●Cost and Productivity benefits of migrating to Quantum ●SY/Max is 187% more expensive than Quantum to repair (on average) ●SY/Max is 89% more expensive than Quantum to exchange. (on average) ●Quantum Mean Time Between Failure values are 4 to 20 times greater than SY/Max! ●Quantum CPUs are 5 to 10x faster leading to greater productivity
● Utilize existing SY/Max field wiring and terminal blocks ● Significantly less time and labor required to change ● Reduce chance of wiring errors and downtime ● Minimizes conversion time per drop ● MINIMIZE PLANT DOWNTIME (associated with the upgrade) ● Rewire = 5 to 6 hours per drop QWA = 1 hour per drop ● No wire is removed and circuit board in QWA is validated to be correct. ● Minimizes your overall RISK of change! ● Minimize your cost and equipment downtime with less expensive more robust Quantum hardware. What is the Value?
●Q. Is the new QWA any deeper or longer than my SY/Max system? A.) Yes. The QWA is ½ inch longer and deeper. ●Q. How do I know what this QWA does electronically? A.) The QWA connects wire to wire. Each QWA has a unique part number on it that identifies which SY/Max module and Quantum module it is designed for. For example a HIM101DAI5400 states that it is a SY/Max 8030HIM101 module connected to a Quantum 140DAI5400 module. In addition a wiring diagram is included with each QWA. ●Q. Are there any limitations to using the QWA? A.) The QWA was designed to handle the same worst case electrical conditions as the SY/Max module would encounter. ●Q. Do I have to worry about electrical live wires? A.) The QWA has a cover (same as standard Quantum terminal block) so it offers the same safety as long as the cover is closed. Frequently Asked Questions
SY/Max to Quantum Simple Installation ●Step 1: ●Step 2: Observe all safety rules and turn off all power sources going to the rack and I/O modules! Remove all electrical power from the rack and all non I/O modules. Remove all I/O Terminal blocks from I/O modules.
●Step 3: ●Step 4: SY/Max to Quantum Simple Installation Remove all I/O modules from the rack. Remove the SY/Max rack. Install the SY/Max to Quantum Adapter plate kit. This allows you to install the Quantum backplane without having to drill into the enclosure sub-panel.
●Step 5: ●Step 6: SY/Max to Quantum Simple Installation Install the Quantum I/O modules in the same location as previous SY/Max I/O module. Install the SY/Max to Quantum Quick Wiring Adapter terminal block into the Quantum I/O Module. Open the cover to the Quick Wiring Adapter.
●Step 7: SY/Max to Quantum Simple Installation Insert the SY/Max terminal block into the SY/Max to Quantum QWA. Close the cover. You are now ready to startup your system knowing that the wiring from your older SY/Max system is now being used in your Quantum System!
