Phoenix Contact’s new PWO 16-POT high-current feed-through terminal is a moulded terminal with a push-in connection. It consists of an inner and outer part, which interlock through the housing panel without requiring any tools. The outer part provides wire connection via a push-in spring at a 45-degree angle; the inner part provides connection via a straight ring cable lug.
The high-current feed-through terminal can handle currents up to 76A and voltages up to 1000V. Despite its compact dimensions, the moulded terminal, or terminal with suitable spacer plates, fully complies with the 600V UL requirements according to UL 1059. The push-in spring provides fast and tool-free connection of wires with diameters ranging from 1.5mm² to 16mm². Rigid wires and wires with ferrules are simply inserted into the clamping point, where the spring securely pushes them against the current bar. To connect finely stranded wires without ferrules, the terminal is held open using a standard screwdriver.
