New pluggable terminal blocks series

Jon Lawson

TE Connectivity has launched its new SNK pluggable terminal blocks series. Mounting and testing time is reduced by connecting subassemblies with pluggable terminal blocks and harnesses. The pluggable terminal blocks enable customised on-site configuration and eliminate the need to stock a vast range of preconfigured solutions.

This series is particularly suited for applications where products can face harsh conditions, such as marine, switchgears, elevators or railways. It has successfully passed the most severe vibration, shock and temperature tests.

TE’s Entrelec pluggable terminal blocks offer a 15% footprint reduction compared to market average. The optimised size of the plugs provides larger marking surfaces for better visibility and identification of circuits. It is easy to create female plug assemblies without tooling from two to 15 poles by using only two plug variants which will reduce the stock of unitary plugs by up to 30%. The sub-assemblies of the industrial equipment can also be easily disconnected for transportation.
