The SmartWire-DT panel wiring system is designed to dramatically reduce assembly and commissioning time. Replacing numerous wires used to connect motor control components with a single cable, the SmartWire-DT system reduces panel wiring complexity by connecting to starters, contactors, pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches, relays, and input/output modules

A free download, the powerful SWD-Assist planning and commissioning software helps customers configure the SmartWire-DTTM network layout to simplify construction logistics by addressing required parts and control power requirements. Configurations can be saved and reused for additional projects. Additionally, SWD-Assist enables the first test of the switchboard installation to be performed without installing a programmable logic controller (PLC).
