Push-In Terminal Blocks Ease Wiring Tasks

The company’s latest terminal blocks use push-in technology (PIT) to reduce insertion forces, allegedly by 50% over other spring-technology components. The modular PIT terminal blocks are said to be easy to operate, reduce fatigue, and are suitable for installations with limited space or hard-to-access wiring. Available in a 2.5 mm2 cross section, the PIT series accepts ferrules between 22 AWG and 14 AWG. An actuation button compatible with any type of tool, even a pen, opens the spring to the maximum wiring space of 14 AWG. Additionally, the PIT series features approximately 100 part numbers including feed-through, multi-level function, component, and pluggable terminal blocks. PHOENIX CONTACT INC., Harrisburg, PA.
