MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Phoenix Contact’s SPT 5 PCB terminal blocks provide fast wiring of conductors for power applications. A zigzag pin design allows for an unrestricted 600 volt and 35 amp UL capability with a pitch of just 7.5 mm.
The SPT 5 is a fixed, one-piece printed circuit terminal block with a spring-cage wire termination design. Solid conductors and stranded conductors with ferrules can be applied without the use of tools; simply push the conductor into the spring-cage connection. For stranded wires without ferrules, a screwdriver is placed into the actuation shaft to open the contact termination point. The screwdriver remains in the actuation shaft during wire placement to allow “two-handed wiring” by the installer. The result is reduced labor costs and reliable wire terminations.
The SPT 5’s stackable design enables any combination of position sizes. Both right angle and vertical PCB-mount versions are available. Typical applications include the manufacture of power supplies, industrial controls, DC-to-DC converters and drive controls.
