PC board connection for high-current applications without tools With its PLA 5 and PLH 5 PC terminal blocks, Phoenix Contact is expanding its series of conductor connections for high-current applications that do not require any tools.

The lever actuated PLA 5 terminals with 30 degrees and PLH 5 horizontal conductor outlet can accommodate conductor cross-sections extending from 0.5mm2 up to 6mm2. As a result of the zigzag pin arrangement, even in a 7.5mm pitch, the compact terminal has UL approval for 600V and has a current-carrying capacity of up to 41A. The push-lock technology allows conductors to be connected with or without a ferrule. This PC terminal block sets itself apart as a result of the labelling surfaces in the field of view, as well as an easy access test socket.

The sandwich design allows colour coding from one up to 12 positions. The single-position versions are also securely mounted on the PC board as a result of the double pinning arrangement. The new PCB terminal blocks round off the ‘Combicon power’ product range with push-lock technology from Phoenix Contact.
