The PIT range of terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact has been extended to accommodate larger wire cross-sections of up to 6 mm². This includes feed-through, multilevel and multiconductor terminals as well as component, base and disconnect terminals. A feature of the range is the fact that the fuse and function terminals are just as small as the standard feed-through terminals.
Using the PIT terminal blocks, conductors are directly connected without using a tool. As soon as the conductor is inserted, the contact springs open automatically. With plugging forces up to 50% lower than before, it has become easier to plug in a conductor and establish a contact. The high contact forces exceed those stipulated by the relevant standards and ensure that high-quality, reliable conductor contacts are established.
To remove a conductor simply requires pressing the newly designed button which can be actuated with various tools. This transfers the force to the inner contact spring, which is then opened to its maximum extent. The orange colour of the button clearly identifies it as an actuating element to prevent mistakes from being made.
