Powerful PCB Connector Carries up to 115 Amps
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - Phoenix Contact introduces the PC 35, a pluggable PCB terminal block that can carry up to 115 amps. The connector has the highest current-carrying capacity on the market.
The PC 35 features standard screw-connection technology and accepts wires up to 2 AWG.
It is UL-rated for field wire termination, which is accomplished with a screwdriver. Through-panel mount capability increases design flexibility.
The contact design creates low insertion and withdrawal forces. These light-touch forces reduce mechanical stresses and possible damage to the PCB solder joints. The silver-plated contacts are highly conductive and provide long-term reliability.
The 600-volt UL and 1000V IEC ratings meet international requirements. Optional shielding is available for applications that may be exposed to electro-magnetic interference.
Suitable applications include power electronics, frequency converters, motor connections, solar inverters and drives.
