Terminal Block, Connectors
May 8, 2001 Wieland Electric introduces new terminal blocks and connectors.
May 8, 2001 Meeting Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL-Northbrook, IL) 486A standards, Wieland Electric's taris insulation displacement connection (IDC) terminal blocks are rated for 50 pounds pullout force for 14 American wire gauge (AWG) wire. These blocks employ a proprietary clamping design that moves the clamping mechanism to the wire, resulting in 80 to 100 newtons of contact force. The block is available in 29 versions, including single-double feed-through, knife-edge disconnect, fuse, and ground blocks. All are equipped with universal DIN mounting feet and measure five millimeters wide.
Wieland's metal-housed 76 Series Miniature Multipole rectangular connectors are silicon-free and carry an IP 55 protection rating. Available with top- or side-entry cable glands in three, four, and seven poles, plus ground configurations, the connectors offer pin density in a restricted space. Socket and plug contacts, which accept 22 to 16 American wire gauge (AWG) wire connections, are available in either screw clamp or crimp clamp versions. Screw clamps are 2.5 square millimeters, rated at 10 A, 600 V, while crimp connections are 1.5 square millimeters without contacts. For more information visit www.wielandelectric.com.
