Phoenix Contact PLW 16 Terminal Blocks

The new PLW 16 panel feed-through terminal blocks are the first in Phoenix Contact’s extensive panel feed-through product line to offer spring termination on both sides of the panel. The wire termination on the inside features a tool-free, push-in spring connection. On the outside of the panel, the PLW 16 features the innovative push-lever spring connection.

Solid, stranded, or ferruled wire can be terminated by placing it in the terminal block and closing the lever. Additionally, solid or ferruled wire can be terminated by simply pushing the wire into the terminal block when the lever is closed. The spring cage creates a gas-tight connection, which self-adjusts with temperature changes and vibration conditions, making the PLW 16 ideal for aggressive environments
