New Modular Terminal Blocks Offer Even Greater Space Savings - Z-Compact from Weidmuller
RICHMOND, VA (April 24, 2007) - Weidmuller introduces the new Z-Compact mini terminal block series-designed to deliver flexibility and vibration-proof connections in a minimal amount of space. Equipped with a highly reliable tension clamp connection, the Z-Compact series is ideal for cramped control cabinets and standard junction enclosures.
Weidmuller's Z-Compact terminal block series includes the ZDU 2.5N, a single-level feedthrough terminal that is only 1.4" in length and mounts on a TS-35 DIN-rail. At this compact size, 60 termination points per foot of DIN-rail are possible. The ZDU 2.5N features one pluggable jumpering channel per terminal block, and is available in 3 and 4 branch configurations. Ground versions and two diode versions are also available.
In addition to the single-level types, the series also consists of dual level versions, such as ZDK 2.5/3AN, which offers the highest wiring density with six connections and two jumpering channels. An application that uses both compact types- single level and dual level- can result in reduced installation space, allowing the use of a smaller enclosure, or providing additional space for other components.
The Z-Compact terminal blocks are UL rated for 300V, 20A and 30 . . .12 AWG. Each terminal block has a flammability rating of UL 94 V-0 and standard tension clamp accessories are compatible. For additional product information, go to www.weidmuller.com.
