Terminal strip with various terminal blocks and connection technologies

CLIPLINE complete terminal block system

Terminal blocks exceed the requirements imposed by standards

The terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact have been tested and approved for a wide range of national and international approvals. The terminal blocks are very resistant to environmental influences, which is why they are designed for pollution degree 3. This degree indicates that conductive contamination in the form of dust, liquids, or gaseous substances can occur. In addition, the terminal block materials provide you with long-term stability and guarantee long-term reliability. The terminal blocks exceed the requirements imposed by standards in various industries with their material properties and their electrical and mechanical properties. The terminal blocks are tested throughout the entire manufacturing process to ensure that this level of quality is consistently maintained.

Connection technologies for the CLIPLINE complete system

PTV terminal block with lateral Push-in connection
XT 2,5 terminal block with transparent clamping space

XT terminal blocks with Push-X technology enable easy connection of rigid and flexible conductors with or without ferrules. Even the smallest and most flexible conductors can be clamped quickly and easily with the pretensioned contact chamber. Simply insert the conductor to the end of the chamber. Pressing down the locking mechanism at the end of the chamber releases the contact spring and snaps it shut rapidly. The XT terminal blocks are initially available with a nominal cross-section of 2.5 mm².

Terminal block with Push-X Technology

Tool-free conductor connection reinvented: Push-X allows direct wiring of rigid and flexible conductors with or without ferrule with the pre-tensioned contact spring. Insert the conductor up to the end of the clamping chamber without effort. As soon as the conductor pushes down the contact spring’s locking mechanism in the end position, the slider is released and the contact spring snaps automatically. The conductor is clamped directly during this process. Like with the well-known Push-in technology, the conductor is released via the orange push button. At the same time, the contact spring is preloaded for the next wiring process.

With Push-in connection technology, you can connect conductors from 0.25 mm² easily – both directly and without tools. The special terminal block contact spring allows up to 50% lower insertion force. Other features include the high contact quality and high conductor pull-out forces. Push-in technology is available for conductor cross-sections up to 185 mm².

PTV terminal block with lateral Push-in connection

The PTV terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact have a lateral Push-in connection.
The connection combines the lateral conductor routing of a screw connection with the tool-free direct connection technology of a Push-in connection. The terminal blocks therefore combine the advantages of both connection technologies. This ensures clear and fast wiring without bending radii.

Screw terminal block with conductors and bridge

The terminal blocks with screw connection technology have been known and accepted worldwide for over 80 years. The screw connection provides maximum contact force and is maintenance-free thanks to the Reakdyn principle. The terminal blocks allow multi-conductor connection at just one terminal point. Connect copper conductors with up to 240 mm² cross-section without any pretreatment.

Spring-cage terminal block with conductors and bridge

The terminal blocks with spring-cage connection are particularly suitable for vibration-sensitive applications. The constant spring force means that the terminal blocks provide high contact reliability independent of the operator. The terminal points on the spring-cage terminal blocks can be opened easily with a screwdriver. The terminal blocks are available up to a cross-section of 35 mm².

QUICKON insulation displacement connection with conductors

The terminal blocks with fast-connection technology feature a patented insulation displacement contact that can be operated with the space-saving swiveling lever using a screwdriver.
The insulated, non-pretreated conductor is connected in just one step.
The resulting time savings can be up to 60%. Due to the available cross-sections of up to 4 mm², the terminal blocks are suitable for control current wiring in the control cabinet.

To the video
COMBI connection with connector

Terminal blocks with COMBI connection are designed for stringent and universal requirements.
The nominal current is routed to the terminal blocks via the contact pin. In conjunction with the contact system in the connector, the connection versions can withstand extreme vibration levels. The COMBI terminal block connection is suitable for your automated, semi-automated, or manual wiring tasks.

To the video
Bolt connection with conductor and bridge

The terminal blocks with bolt connection are suitable for connecting ring and fork-type cable lugs. The connection allows for considerable conductor pull-out forces due to the high contact force and the large contact surfaces. Terminal blocks with bolt connections allow multi-conductor connection at just one terminal point. The captive cap nuts on the hinged covers are an additional advantage.

Push-X terminal block with LPS service connector

The LPS service connectors are suitable for a variety of testing applications. The LPS connectors are equipped with LP technology (Lever Push-in technology), making repeat wiring quick and easy. In addition, the lever connection enables easy one-handed operation, resulting in high wiring convenience. The contact springs have a silver-plated surface to ensure that the connectors provide consistent and long-lasting quality. In addition, the connectors are designed so that they can be inserted into the multifunction slot over and over again without requiring a great deal of force.

Push-X terminal blocks with LPO load-contact connectors

The LPO load-contact connectors enable the simple integration of additional load contacts via the function shaft of the terminal blocks. With this simple integration, the LPO connectors feature a great advantage, especially with regard to design changes in switchgear. Instead of having to retrofit the switchgear with new terminal strips, the LPO connectors make it easy to integrate additional load contacts. To ensure that the load contacts are also suitable as a permanent solution, the contact spring is designed so that the LPO connectors latches firmly into the multifunction shaft. This means that the connectors withstand high tensile forces and can only be released with increased force. The connectors are equipped with LP Lever Push-in technology for easy handling when installing conductors.

Various terminal blocks with warning labels

The safety accessories of the CLIPLINE complete terminal block system include various accessories that make handling the terminal blocks even safer.
