PC5 Connectors Shrink

Phoenix Contact’s PC 5 connector family now comes in more compact versions; 15% percent smaller than the original design, while maintaining the same performance data. Users can wire currents up to 41A UL and conductors up to 8 AWG in a smaller space. All of the connectors are plug-compatible to the existing PC 5 and PC 4 headers and panel-mount plug connectors. The updated PC 5 connectors are available with or without screw flange or with the tool-free click-and-lock latching system in two through 12 positions. PHOENIX CONTACT INC., Harrisburg, PA. (800) 322-3225.
