New two-level terminals for 4-mm2; cross-sections

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company has introduced new space-saving two-level terminals for rated wire cross-sections up to 4 mm². The compact PRKD 4 terminal blocks and the corresponding PSLD 4 PE terminals (photo) are available with two or three ports per level and halve the required installation space. In addition to the small footprint, both series are characterized by a large variance and particularly easy handling due to enlarged insertion channels and minimized engaging force. An integrated pusher, which can be operated with light pressure without special tools, is used to quickly disconnect wires. The terminal design and vertical wire insertion from above enable installation close to the wiring channels and thus very compact setups in the field. The high contact force of the push-in spring ensures secure fixation of the wire ends that withstands even strong vibrations and mechanical shocks. — Conta-Clip Verbindungstechnik GmbH, Hövelhof, Germany
