Modular Fast-On Terminal Blocks from Cliff™ Electronics
Cliff™ Electronics, leaders in the design, development and manufacture of components and connectors for industrial, audio, instrumentation, medical, lighting and vending applications, announce the availability of a range of highly versatile Fast-On terminal blocks and accessories for system and panel builders.
The modular construction of Cliff™ Fast-On terminal blocks allows users to simply configure multiple unit assemblies to suit a wide range of applications. The terminal blocks are available in red, blue and black to simplify identification and cater for three-phase installations. Each terminal has a touch-proof cover which also offers an indication of unauthorised unauthorized tampering. It is possible to write on the lid cover with a suitable pen and, for OEM users, Cliff™ will hot-print custom legends on the lid or front face.
Cliff™ Fast-On terminal blocks accept wire sizes from 26 to 12 AWG and ¼″ fork spade connectors. They have a clamping medium featuring a combi-screw with a slotted cross head which clamps on to a captive profiles washer. Contact material may be specified as nickel or gold plated and is rated to 30 Amps. The terminal blocks are designed to meet UL94HB, EN60065 (complies) and CSA C22.2 and have an operating temperature range of -20 to +80°C.
To assist assembly, a ¼″ Fast-On chassis or PCB mounting version may be specified. For additional, mechanical stability, a screw fixing module is available which can be positioned anywhere in a multiple assembly to allow it to be screwed to a PCB or chassis. Curved end termination caps are available to finish the ends cleanly and give sufficient creepage clearance for the end terminals to meet UL norms.
John Hall, General Manager of Cliff™ Electronics, comments; “We have many years’ experience of supplying components to a large number of major OEMs. With our own factories in both the UK and Far East, we can offer great flexibility in supplying small or large quantity requirements on shorter lead-times with very flexible minimum order quantities”.
Applications for Cliff™ modular Fast-On terminal blocks include medical equipment, alarm panels, loudspeakers, building automation and control systems and white goods.
Cliff™ Fast-On terminal blocks are available from stock direct from the factory or from Premier Farnell element 14 in the UK.
