Fast and Easy Connections: New Pluggable Connector with Push-In Connection Technology

Weidmuller brings their timesaving push-in termination technology to a new line of pluggable PCB connectors- the BLF Series. These new, push-in connector plugs provide fast and easy tool-free termination, with only a 20% reduction in wire pull out force when compared with screw clamping termination. The BLF plugs, available in 5.00mm and 5.08mm pitches, allow users the flexibility of using solid, stranded or ferruled wires, further reducing their installation time and costs.

Weidmuller's BLF plugs include a number of features designed to increase process safety and overall versatility. Enlarged wire entries provide a clamping range of up to 2.5mm2 to accommodate wire ferrules with plastic collars and meet minimum creepage requirements. The push-in termination is easy to make with the user-friendly push buttons that ensure safe and simple wiring. To reduce the strain on the PCB when releasing the connector in the field, the BLF plug is available with multiple, tool-less locking and releasing options. The integrated test points offer fast manual diagnosis for on-the-spot troubleshooting.

BLF series plugs are UL rated for 300V, 20A and wire sizes of 26-12 AWG. They are an expansion of Weidmuller's line of signal connectors that include leaf spring, clamping yoke, tension clamp, TOP and crimp termination systems.
