New low-profile PCB terminal blocks – SPTAF 1


Three convenient spring-lever options to suit your needs

Whether you're looking for a connector to fit in the tightest of spaces, a connector that redefines wiring convenience, or something that combines space savings and convenience, the SPTAF 1 connector family has you covered. This new connector family features a low-profile connector body that’s only 8 mm in height, springwire termination, an 8 A and 300 V UL rating, and a choice of three user-friendly spring-lever options.

For the tightest fit, the IL series has an internal lever, keeping overall connector height to just 8 mm. For stranded wire, a screwdriver quickly and easily opens the connection.

No tools are required for the EL series. An external lever is easily depressed with your finger, and this connector comes in at an overall height of just 10.2-mm high.

An innovative locking lever, the hallmark of the LL series, locks the connector into an open position. This enables the installer to use both hands for wiring. As on the EL series, no tools are required to use this connector, and it is just less than 11 mm high. And as is the case with Phoenix Contact’s spring connectors, solid or ferruled wires can be inserted into any of these three connector series without opening the spring connection.
