High operating convenience with new XTV connection technology

The new XTV terminal block family is the first product family with the new Push-X connection technology from Phoenix Contact. Compared to the existing Push-in connection technology, Push-X serves all conductor types in direct wiring without exception.

High operating convenience with new XTV connection technology

No force or tools are necessary, ensuring a high level of operating convenience. This is made possible by the connection chamber being open in the delivery state. By tapping with the inserted conductor, the preloaded contact spring is triggered even by the smallest flexible conductors, and safe contacting is automatically established. This reduces installation times and enables faster wiring. As with Push-in, a conductor is released by actuating the orange pusher. This opens the connection chamber and tensions the contact spring at the same time.

The push button always displays the chamber position clearly, regardless of the conductor diameter and orientation of the terminal block. The XTV product range initially is comprised of the three cross-section ranges 6, 10, and 16 mm. The multifunctional properties of feed-through terminal blocks and multi-conductor terminal blocks make it possible to use them in various control cabinet applications and in the field.

With testing that goes above and beyond the requirements of the standard, Push-X connection technology can also be used in industries that place high requirements on vibrations, gas tightness, and robustness. Due to the double function shaft, the XTV terminal blocks can be freely combined with the terminal blocks and accessories of the Clipline complete terminal block system.
