Digi-Key offer a connector to fit in the tightest of spaces, that redefines wiring convenience, that combines space savings and convenience. The Phoenix Contact's SPTAF 1 connector family has an option to meet these requirements. This connector family features a low-profile connector body that is only 8mm in height, come with spring-wire termination, an 8A and 300V 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 8mm. 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 a finger and this connector comes in at an overall height of just 10.2mm 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. 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.
