Original Press Release:
High-Density Fuse Terminal Blocks for Class I, Div. 2 Areas
Phoenix Contact now offers double-level fuse terminal blocks with UL Class I, Division 2 certification for use in hazardous locations. The UT 4-PE/L/HESI fuse terminal block series incorporates reliable screw connection in a 6.2-mm pitch.
The new multi-level terminal blocks provide fusing, feed-through, and shielding functionality all in one package, saving space, time, and money. Compared with single-level blocks that would require three blocks to perform the same function, the new double-level blocks require 66 percent less DIN rail space.
The double bridge shaft on each level allows quick installation of potential distribution. The UT line uses Phoenix Contact’s Reakdyn® groove, which eliminates screw back-out and delivers reliable termination of stranded wire, with or without ferrules. It is rated for multi-conductors.
In addition to CID2 certification, the terminal blocks also have approvals for: Class I, Zone 2, EX, IEC EX UL, cUL, AEX nA II Gc with current ratings of 20 A and 300 V UL.
The fuse blocks are part of Phoenix Contact’s CLIPLINE Complete modular terminal block system. The system includes identical bridging, marking, and testing accessories across all termination technologies, minimizing inventory costs.
