Phoenix Contact introduces a new line of push-in spring technology terminal blocks for high power applications. Screw-type connections have long dominated larger wire terminations, because a suitable spring version was not available. More customers have requested a spring-type version for the added benefits it offers, including a faster, reliable termination, as well as consistent connection technology among all connections within their cabinet. PTPOWER fulfills these requirements with a fast, safe and reliable connection for wires up to 4/0 AWG.
These high-power blocks have similar accessories and design as their smaller counterparts in the CLIPLINE Complete line, including marking and testing adaptors.
The PTPOWER 95 is the first in a series of high-power spring terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact featuring Power Turn technology. This is a short lever movement to open and close the termination area. When the termination area is opened, the springs are now loose and not kinetically charged, achieving an extra level of safety. This feature makes the PTPOWER 95 the only finger-safe spring terminal block for these larger conductors. In addition to this quick and safe Power Turn feature, Phoenix Contact’s unique push-in capabilities allow direct wire termination. This is the world’s fastest way to connect wires greater than 2 AWG. With the terminal block in the “closed” position, the user simply pushes a wire in until it stops, for the same reliable connection.
All PTPOWER terminal blocks are also side entry for optimum large conductor routing without the need to accommodate a bending radius. The PTPOWER 95 has multiple accessories for maximum flexibility. These include two- and three-position bridges, individual 2.3mm test point with optional 4mm test point, DIN rail or panel options, and the AGK 10-PTPOWER pick-off terminal, which allows up to four 6 AWG wires added to each block . There are 17 different versions, including blocks prebuilt with three to five positions, black/yellow functional earth (FE) and potential earth (PE) versions.
PTPOWER 95 is rated per UL for 230A at 1000V using 4 to 4/0 AWG wire sizes.
