MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Phoenix Contact introduces the FKCN 2.5 spring-cage plug connectors and compatible CCDN 2.5 base headers. The component height is 30 percent lower than standard connectors up to 12 AWG.
The innovative push-in spring-cage technology allows rigid and flexible wires with ferrule to be connected quickly without any tools. The connector has a large wire entry so that it can safely support flexible wire ferrules. Wires can be disconnected easily using the orange actuation levers. The generously sized labeling and printing surface above the wire entry allows for easy-to-read marking.
The accompanying CCDN 2.5 is a double-level, pin-in-paste header, just 19 mm high. When used together, the FKCN 2.5 and the CCDN 2.5 support the trend of smaller electronics components by creating more free space on the board.
