MATERIALS AND FUNCTION
Housings – The plastic housing holding the
metallic screws and clamps is made of UL 94 V2
(105 degree C) thermoplastic polyamide 6.6.
This plastic and its certification allow operation
rated at 600V, providing ample dielectric
strength for any Industrial Application.
Clamps (made of steel) - Steel is one of the
strongest materials available for its value.
The clamps are zinc plated to guard against
corrosion. When properly torqued, the clamp
is designed to self-lock.
Screws – Made of steel as well, the screws
act as a system with the clamps – this system
requires the same materials for each component.
The screws lift and help to self-lock the
clamps providing a downward force onto the
conductors. The screws are also plated with
a Zinc finish to prevent any form of corrosion.
This is the most popular of all known connection
methods. Screw connection refers to any con-
nection in which the conductor is stripped of its
insulation and clamped without any preparation.
When the screw is tightened, the pressure
pulls apart both halves of the clamping yoke.
This generates a high locking action on the
screw and provides excellent vibration
Tension Clamp System
Tension clamp connection allows the conductor
to be pressed directly against the current bar.
The clamp is opened with a screwdriver allowing
the insertion of the conductor.
End Plate – Terminal Blocks are manu-
factured with one open end allowing
side by side placement. An end plate is
necessary for the last terminal block in
the assembly enabling full enclosure.
Partition – The partition allows visual
separation of circuits and for electrical
separation due to adjacent cross
– To prevent terminal
blocks from falling off the DIN Rail,
they must be secured on each side. This
is accomplished with end brackets
screwed onto the rail. Two end brackets
are necessary – one on each side of the
continuous assembly designed.
Cross Connections – Cross Connections
distribute potentials within an assembly.
Standard poles of 2, 3, 4, or 10 are avail-
able to satisfy your design requirements
Marking Tag – Marking tags are used for
circuit identification and easier trouble-
shooting. We have many numbers and
letters available that will make your
designed assembly unique. Horizontal
markers for DIN Rail mounted horizontally
and vertical for assemblies mounted
