Push-in connection technology

Push-in connection technology: consistent from the field to the controller

Thanks to push-in connection technology from Phoenix Contact, you can wire your entire application easily and safely. Push-in - the new insertion experience!

Wire your application from the field to the controller using push-in connection technology from Phoenix Contact. We offer a complete product range for this - from sensor/actuator wiring in the field, to modular terminal blocks and relay systems, all the way through to compact controllers and high-performance controllers.

Your advantages

  • Consistent product range, from field cabling through to the controller with push-in connection technology
  • Easy and tool-free wiring, thanks to insertion forces which are reduced by up to 50 percent
  • Fast release of the conductor with any type of tool, using the integrated lever

Push-in connection technology in detail

Easy application – high-performance connection:

  • Direct, tool-free conductor connection for either solid conductors or conductors pre-assembled with ferrules
  • The special spring profile enables easy insertion of conductors with ferrules from 0.34 mm² or higher while simultaneously subject to maximum conductor pull-out forces
  • The easy release of conductors with any type of tool is enabled using the actuation lever, without direct contact with live parts
  • In order to connect stranded conductors from 0.14 mm² without ferrules, the lever only has to be actuated during insertion
This is how push-in connection technology works

Field cabling

The right terminal block for every task is available to you, from 1.5 mm² to 95 mm², thanks to PT modular terminal blocks with push-in connection technology.

Various terminal block series ensure the requirements of all applications are taken care of, such as in the railway industry, energy technology, or for explosion-protected areas in the process industry.

Modular terminal blocks make consequent use of the advantages of the CLIPLINE complete system. In addition, further connection technologies can be freely combined with standardized system accessories to form part of the system.

INTERFACE technology and switching devices

Relay systems with push-in technology

INTERFACE technology and switching devices with push-in connection technology from Phoenix Contact provide signal conditioning for the entire control system, from the relay module right through to the analog signal conditioner with functional safety.

In this manner, analog, digital, and power signals can be converted, switched, isolated, conditioned, amplified, and connected in a trouble-free manner. This technology is ideally suited to versatile tasks within automation.

Surge protection and device protection
