By enabling wires to be connected with no stripping and without need for special tools, the QUIX modular terminal blocks are said to save up to 60% of installation time. The blocks’ connection is made with the simple lever motion of a screwdriver and the insertion of an unstripped wire (up to 1.5 mm2; AWG 20 to 16). Strain-relief ribs within the housing and a special snap fitting in the terminal block’s metal body ensure a permanent, gas-tight and vibration-resistant connection.The blocks also feature a screwless jumper system that simply snaps in place with no tools required. Bridges are available in two and five positions. With a dual jumper channel, any combination of connections is possible. Blocks are front-loading and have integral test connections. Numerous options are available.
