Signal Wiring in Confined Spaces from Phoenix Contact

Knife disconnect terminal blockHigh signal density can be achieved for disconnect terminal blocks using the new knife disconnect terminal blocks with push-in connection technology with 3.5 mm pitch for conductors up to 1.5 mm² from Phoenix Contact.

You can therefore save up to 30% space in the control cabinet. The PT 1,5/S-MT modular terminal block range includes two, three, and four-conductor terminal blocks as well as double-level versions. Feed-through terminal blocks of the same shape complete the range.

A 2.3 mm test connection at every contact point allows measuring devices to be conveniently looped into the circuit. The double function shaft enables individual and time-saving potential distribution with the aid of jumpers. Disconnect knives and actuation levers of the same colour ensure clear assignment of the connection levels when dealing with double-level terminal blocks. Large-surface marking options also provide a clear view for wiring and maintenance work.

The knife disconnect terminal blocks use the system accessories for the Clipline complete modular terminal block system. Using push-in connection technology, conductors are wired directly and without using any tools. With up to 50% lower insertion forces, insertion and contacting is easier. High contact forces that exceed those required by the relevant standards ensure reliable and high-quality conductor contacting. The conductors are released using a new type of button, which can be actuated using various tools.
