Terminal blocks for signal technology
Phoenix Contact provides a broad portfolio of indoor and outdoor electrical connection technology for the diverse applications in signal technology. Terminal blocks in the cross-section range of 0.14 to 300 mm² from the CLIPLINE complete series consisting of various connection technology such as screw, spring, bolt, and IDC technology ensure a secure connection. Railway infrastructure increasingly uses connection technology based on spring technology such as Push-in direct connection technology. It combines all the advantages of spring-cage technology and offers enormous cost-savings potential since lines are wired in considerably less time.
Railway infrastructure systems have very long service lives of several decades. Accordingly, the connection technology used must be failsafe and maintenance-free while meeting the conventional standards. For example, Phoenix Contact terminal blocks meet the stringent requirements of EN 50125-3 for shock and vibration, among others.
Alongside a wide selection of terminal blocks, the CLIPLINE complete portfolio offers a complete, universal range of accessories. It consists of test and service connectors, bridges, shield clamps, and more.
Knife-disconnect terminal blocks for railway infrastructure
Knife-disconnect terminal blocks are used for a variety of tasks. They offer the convenient separation of circuits using a lever-type disconnect knife, isolating plug, or rotary contact. Our knife-disconnect terminal blocks feature high-quality disconnect points and a compact design that reliably complies with all air and creepage distances. They are easy to handle: A standard screwdriver operates the disconnect knife, and the S-MT switching lock protects the disconnect point against accidentally closing. It is possible to test on both sides of the disconnect point. Since touch protection for the non-current carrying PT push button is ensured up to 1,000 V, testing is 100% safe.
Marshalling patchboards for signal marshalling
PTMC marshalling patchboards allow high packing density for signal marshalling in railway infrastructure. The modular design accommodates a variable design with an exact number of positions. In conjunction with different installation options, they are ideally suited for integration into new and existing signal boxes. Matrix elements in color facilitate intuitive, clearly arranged installation.
PTFIX terminal blocks Installation in a minimum amount of space
Signal wires that are not needed must be placed on terminal points, marked, and integrated into the equipotential bonding concept. The PTFIX terminal block is ideal for gathering and combining such signal wires. In a minimum amount of installation space, a number of cores can be professionally connected to a potential, which is then connected to a surge protection element as a group.
