Phoenix Contact New Terminal Blocks Connect Motors Quickly and Easily
- Published: Wednesday, 03 June 2015 12:19
For easy motor connection, space-saving four-level terminal blocks are now available from Phoenix Contact with push-in connection technology for nominal cross sections up to 4 mm², 32A, and 600 V UL.
Easy potential distribution via a function shaft on every level reduces wiring costs. A large-surface marking option clearly identifies every motor connection. Each terminal point can be marked and is equipped with an easily accessible test opening.
Thanks to 50 percent less insertion force, it is possible to insert solid and stranded conductors with ferrules and cross sections from 0.25 to 6 mm² without tools. The built-in actuation lever allows fully insulated releasing with any tool. The orange-coloured button indicates the actuating element and prevents the terminal from being activated accidentally. Connection of stranded conductors from 0.2 mm² without ferrules is possible.
The motor terminals were developed within the CLIPLINE complete terminal block range for use of cross-system accessories. In addition to the same bridge system, the entire accessory range for marking and testing is identical to the push-in, screw, spring-cage, and IDC fast connection technology.
