June 18, 2009 - Allowing users to create different size strips while stocking only 2 part numbers, Modular Barrier Strips are available in 2 and 3 positions that can be interlocked to build blocks up to 16 positions without losing 0.235 in. centerline spacing. Units are UL recognized and are rated for 15 A and 300 V, and thermoplastic housings carry UL 94V-0 flammability rating. Single-row strips are through-hole soldered and offer standoffs that allow flux and solvents to drain during cleaning.

Two- and Three-Position Modules Dovetail Up to 16 Positions While Maintaining Pitch

HARRISBURG, Pa. - June 12, 2009 - New modular barrier strips from Tyco Electronics feature dovetail interlocking to allow users to create different size strips while only stocking two part numbers. The barrier strips are available in two and three positions that can be interlocked to build blocks up to 16 positions without losing the 0.235-inch centerline spacing. The dual-barrier design allows access for wire from two sides to provide more flexible wiring options than tri-barrier designs.

"Modularity allows customers to simplify procurement and inventory while maintaining flexibility in having different sizes of barrier blocks for signal and power wiring," says Russ Dzielak, product manager. "Applications such as HVAC controls, security and alarms, and industrial controls will benefit from the modularity. Two modular strips allow users to build any size strip from two to 16 positions."

The UL recognized strips are rated for 15 amps and 300 volts. The thermoplastic housings carry a UL 94V-0 flammability rating. The single-row strips are through-hole soldered and offer standoffs that allow flux and solvents to drain during cleaning.
