Texim – Terminal blocks offer high connection capacity accommodate wire up to 35mm2Sep 20 2012 - Switches, Relays & Onboard [More Switches, Relays & Onboard Articles]
Texim now offers Sauro’s MPP series terminal blocks which offer a high connection capacity, accommodating wire up to 35mm2 (2 AWG) and consequently a certified current range of 125A can be reached.
The terminal block is available in 15mm Imperial pitches in monolithic blocks from 2 to 12 poles in both side-stackable and modular versions or with a flange which fixes it to the PCB, with insertion of the wire parallel to the board and pegs to prevent an incorrect manual assembly.
The basic monolithic terminal blocks can be stacked or mounted on the PCB in order to obtain any number of poles without losing the pitch; by taking advantage of this characteristic a minimum stock of basic terminal blocks can be kept.
The straight MPP terminal block is also available with clamping pegs moulded into the plastic housing to secure it to the PCB. This solution allows the application of the nominal tightening torque and prevents an incorrect assembly of the terminal block. In this way, the most restrictive guidelines set by the international standards (VDE) are passed, says the company.More news from Texim
