  • Reduction in logistics costs with the uniform CLIPLINE complete system accessories
  • Terminal blocks with Push-in connection are part of the COMPLETE line system

PT terminal blocks

PT Push-in terminal blocks  

PT Push-in terminal blocks

For the PT terminal blocks with Push-in connection technology, you can choose the ideal terminal block for every task, with a nominal diameter from 1.5 mm² to 185 mm².
Convenient connection: insert rigid conductors or conductors with ferrules from 0.25 mm² into the conductor shaft. The contact spring opens automatically and provides the required pressure force against the current bar. When installing smaller conductors from 0.14 mm², use a standard screwdriver to actuate the contact spring.
These terminal blocks utilize the advantages of the CLIPLINE complete system. These include being able to freely combine all connection technologies and the use of standardized system accessories.

PTV – combination of Push-in connection and screw terminal block

PTV product family with lateral conductor connection  

PTV product family with lateral conductor connection

The PTV terminal blocks combine the advantages of tool-free Push-in connection with the lateral conductor routing of a screw terminal block. The tool-free Push-in direct connection technology thus ensures time-saving conductor connection with low conductor insertion forces and high vibration resistance. The lateral conductor routing of the terminal blocks also allows clearly arranged wiring without bending radii. The resulting straight conductor routing from the terminal block to the cable duct makes it much easier to attach and read wire markings.

Push-in connection technology in detail

  • Direct, tool-free conductor connection for rigid conductors or conductors pre-assembled with ferrules.
  • The special spring profile allows the easy insertion of rigid conductors and conductors with ferrules starting from 0.25 mm² combined with maximum conductor pull-out forces.
  • Convenient insertion with 50% lower insertion force.
  • The push button permits easy conductor release using any type of tool, without direct contact with live parts.
  • To connect flexible conductors of 0.14 mm² or more without ferrules, the button simply needs to be actuated during insertion.
  • Safe wiring and operation with color-coded push button.
  • Connection of all conductor types with convenient front connection.

PTPOWER high-current terminal blocks

Easy connection with Power-Turn technology  

Easy connection with Power-Turn technology

The high-current terminal blocks with the newly developed Power-Turn connection technology provide you with the fastest and most user-friendly connection option currently available for wiring large conductors. Contact conductors up to 185 mm² by simply swiveling the operating lever – and you’re done!

Alternatively, conductors can also be quickly and easily inserted directly when the lever is closed using the integrated Push-in Technology.
