Micro terminal blocks with push-in connection technology
For convenient wiring in confined spaces along with variable mounting options, Phoenix Contact has introduced its MP 1.5 micro terminal blocks with push-in connection technology. This new micro block accommodates the increasing miniaturization of machine, switchgear, and control cabinet design. The MP 1.5 blocks feature a connection capacity of 0.14 mm² to 1.5 mm² (26-16 AWG). Offering flexible mounting options, this terminal block can be fastened on NS 15 DIN rail, direct mounted with securing pins, or screw-in mounted with self-locking flanges. With their test openings, the micro terminal blocks provide a testing option at every terminal point. The MP 1.5 micro blocks can be marked by self-adhesive marker strips at each point, ensuring precise and accurate wiring. With a compact design and clear markings, the MP 1.5 micro terminal blocks offer a pinpointed, time-saving wiring solution, the company says.
