Original Press Release:
EMI Filtered Barrier Strip Terminal Block Rated to 30 Amps
Fairview, PA- October 14, 2008-Spectrum Control, Inc. expands its line of standard Barrier Strip Terminal Blocks with a new model featuring a higher 30 Amp current rating. Spectrum's new terminal block delivers the higher rating without incurring the expense of a true "higher current" block and provides high insertion loss for EMI/RFI filtering of AC and DC power lines and control lines. These terminal blocks are available with 2 to 6 terminals and a capacitance range of 2,500 to 5,200 pF.
The 30 Amp terminal blocks have an operating temperature range of -55° C to 105° C and a 100VDC working voltage. These barrier strip terminal blocks are UL recognized and CSA approved for DC voltages and are available in RoHS compliant versions.
The barrier strip terminal block is offered in various sizes with terminals for soldering or spade lugs. The block's rugged construction protects the filter elements during installation and field service. Typical applications include filtering power supplies in telecommunications equipment, metering, industrial controls, instrumentation and EDP equipment.
Spectrum Control's 30 Amp barrier strip terminal blocks have pricing ranging from $9.00 to $25.00 depending on configurations and quantities required.
