Original Press Release:
New Terminal Block Equivalents
Carlisle, PA - Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc. has announced the introduction of 3 new terminal block product lines which are identical equivalents to the Allen Bradley 1492J series, the Phoenix Contact UKN series and the Weidmuller WDU series. The unique feature of these products is that they are identical to the point where customers can use the accessories that they now have in stock. The color of the housings is the same so there are no visual differences and they are molded from a UL 94V0 material. The metal clamping bodies are made of a nickel-plated copper alloy, the screws are plated to prevent corrosion and all materials are Rohs compliant. The terminal blocks are UL recognized like the competitive products and there is a wide range of accessories and styles available.
ASI is the first company to address the common complaint of customers that the terminal blocks are not really equivalent due to differences of color, the requirement for different accessories and the lack of different models. Customers can now save 30% to 50% and more by specifying the new equivalent terminal blocks at www.asi-ez.com. On the website is a complete electronic cross-reference to Phoenix Contact, Weidmuller and Allen Bradley along with prices and specifications. In addition, ASI provides rail assembly services to those companies that would prefer to purchase a fully completed rail assembly. The EZ Rail software program at www.asi-ez.com assists the customer in developing a DIN rail terminal block assembly.
