Pluggable printed circuit board terminal blocks
Automation Systems Interconnect offers new vertical screw-lock pluggable terminal blocks.
Mechanicsburg, Pa., February 8, 2011—Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc (ASI) has recently expanded their broad line of pluggable printed circuit board terminal blocks to include vertical terminal blocks with a screw-locking feature similar to that found in many other types of connectors.
The plug, which is available in a wide range of pin spacing from 5mm to 5.08mm and in sizes from 2 to 20 positions, comes equipped with a flange on each end that has a locking screw. The corresponding pin header that is mounted onto a printed circuit board is equipped with a threaded insert to which the screw from the plug is engaged. The screw-lock plug and header are especially useful for those applications where vibration is a concern or where an extra level of security in the wiring connection is desired.
The vertical terminal block can be used to help resolve the wire entry and screw access issues. The ASI high quality blocks are available in wire entry from the left or the right of the terminal block
The ASI screw-lock plugs and headers are molded with UL94V0 plastic and the plug features a nickel-plated copper metal body and a Phosphor Bronze tin-plated contact to ensure maximum reliability under all conditions.
