Terminal Blocks Get Pushy For Easy Installation

Dinkle International’s pluggable terminal blocks feature a unique push-in-design for connecting wires to the terminal blocks, said to improve upon traditional screw terminals in terms of efficiency, ease of use, and space savings. Wires connected using the company’s push-in-design technology guarantee a secure connection with about 75% less time required per wire installation. Connecting a solid wire with push-in-design takes only 3.6 seconds, compared to 13.5 seconds for a screw connection. A flexible wire takes just 4.1 seconds to connect, while a screw terminal takes 14.4 seconds. A flexible wired with a ferrule takes only 3.7 seconds to connect, compared to 13.2 seconds for a screw terminal. The pluggable terminal blocks are available in a variety of sizes and ratings. Pitch varies from 2.54 to 6.35 mm, with wire ranges from 30 to 16 to 24 to 12 AWG. Current ratings are 5A to 8A at 150 Vac, 8A to 16A at 300 Vac, and 20A at 600 Vac. Connection methods are V-type spring (not patented), or patented S-Cage single, double, and rail type. Customization services include label printing, and supplying blocks in assorted color combinations.
