Connectors offer high performance in minimum space

Phoenix Contact’s PC 5 connector family now comes in a more compact design.

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s PC 5 connector family now comes in a more compact design. The dimensions are 15 percent smaller than the original design, while maintaining the same high-performance data of the original PC 5 connector.

Using the new connectors, installers can wire currents up to 41 amps UL and conductors up to 8 AWG in a smaller space. This allows a more compact equipment design. All of the connectors are plug-compatible to the existing PC 5 and PC 4 headers and panel-mount plug connectors.

The updated PC 5 connectors are available with or without screw flange, or with the tool-free click-and-lock latching system, in two through 12 positions.
