Harrisburg, Pa. - Phoenix Contact Inc. recently formed a partnership with ECT International (Brookfield, Wis.) to increase convenience and product access for their customers.

Phoenix Contact will provide ECT with detailed product information, which will be added to the parts database included with ECT's 'promis-e' control system design software. Phoenix's parts data also will be available separately on CD-ROM and as a download from both companies' web sites. The companies also will share sales and marketing opportunities. The agreement includes Phoenix's DIN rail-mounted terminal blocks, printed circuit board-mounted, high-density connectors and wiring devices, interface and relay systems, signal conditioning modules, input/output modules, transient protection devices, power supplies, and distributed I/O systems.

'This partnership will allow our customers to work more effectively with our products and solutions, and provide tremendous savings in time and resources in electrical and automation designs. With features like error checking, automatic bill of material creation, wire numbering, and ongoing enhancements, promis-e software is well suited to supporting Phoenix Contact's marketing and sales activities,' says Arnold Offner, Phoenix Contact's product marketing manager.

'The addition of the Phoenix Contact parts data is a great convenience to users of our software,' adds Arthur Sawall, ECT's president. 'By providing a database that already contains data on such widely used products, we save the user from having to enter this information.'
