Wieland Electric Inc. now offers its comprehensive range of Europa terminal strip connectors with an enhanced housing material that complies with revised glow wire testing standards.
The new version of the popular Europa terminal strip connectors is constructed using an improved polyamide material that provides the extended flammability protection required to meet the DIN 60335-1 standard for consumer appliances, which includes enhanced glow wire flammability test requirements.
“This latest enhancement of the Europa strip connectors gives design engineers the ability to specify them globally.” said Martin Lalonde, application engineer at Wieland Electric.
The Europa terminal strips are screw-clamp connectors designed to provide economical, secure electrical connections mounted to a flat surface. They are available with 1 – 12 connections in five different sizes to accommodate a range of current ratings and wire gauges: Type 4 (up to 20A/600V for 22 – 14AWG); Type 6 (up to 20A/600V for 22 – 12AWG); Type 10 (up to 40A/600V for 22 – 10AWG) Type 16 (up to 65A/600V for 22 – 8AWG); and Type 20 (up to 75A/600V for 22 – 4AWG). Additionally, all of the connector types are available with an optional protective guard inside the clamping body to prevent damage to the connected wire, which is especially useful for designers using stranded wire. Marking accessories are also available for all sizes.
