EAO Series 04 PIT Offers Fast Assembly

Milford, CT - EAO Switch Corporation of Milford, CT USA, a premier global supplier
of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Components and Systems, announces the Series 04 PIT push-in terminal. This component features a Phoenix Contact spring terminal connection, which reduces assembly time by up to 70% compared to traditional screw terminals. Plus, no additional equipment is needed to take advantage of this labor and cost saving mechanism. The Series 04 PIT benefits any application where fast and reliable assembly techniques are a top priority, specifically transportation, mechanical engineering, and process automation.

The Series 04 PIT offers a more reliable, secure connection in combination with a very high resistance to vibration. Moreover, the cable connection is accomplished without any tools. To achieve a secure connection, one only needs to push the stripped wire-end into the spring terminal; this will apply the correct pressure to maintain a secure connection over the lifetime of the switch. EAO's PIT accepts wire sizes from 16 to 26AWG, offers protection against contact according to the IP 20 standard, and a mechanical lifetime rating of up to 3 million operations.

Push-in terminals connect to any of the Series 04 actuators, including square and round pushbutton versions, two- or three-position lever switches, key lock switches, emergency-stops, and large-headed buttons. Most of these products are available with LED illumination.

The EAO Series 04 has been upgraded with the following three products with push in terminal technology: a snap-action switch element (gold/silver), a slow-make element (gold/silver), and a lamp block. The elements are stackable, providing the flexibility to use up to six contacts per switch. Contact blocks are available in 1NO, 1NC, 2NO, 2NC, and also in a 1NO/1NC combination configuration.

Series 04 equipment offers front protection to IP 65 and is rated up to 500VAC. This internationally recognized switch series fits into 22.5mm mounting holes for standard raised mounting applications or 30.5mm round and square cut-outs for flush mounting. Operating range is -25°C to 55°C. All products comply with international standards, including UL, CE, RoHS, CB - EN/IEC 60947-5-1, NFF 16-102, CSA, CCC, GOST, and German Lloyd. UL approval is for copper wire, size 26-16.
