Terminal Blocks have spring clamp compression mount contacts.

Press Release Summary:

Utilizing METZ CONNECT Springcon technology for secure, vibration-resistant connection that automatically adjusts to 28–16 AWG wires, SC305 and SL305 series facilitate wire-to-board connection without header. Contact is established directly on solder pads, allowing opposing side of PCB to be used for components. With 5 mm centerline, solid wires insert directly for tool-less connection. While SL305 is direct solder component, SC305 is snap-fit version for traditional wall-plate applications.

Original Press Release:

METZ CONNECT - the "Quality Leader" is Proud to Introduce New Products as Follows: Series SC305/SL305 Terminal Blocks Compact and Cost Effective with Spring Clamp Compression Mount Contacts

The new SC305 and SL305 series with spring clamp compression mount contacts from METZ CONNECT facilitate a wire-to-board connection without the use of a header.  Contact is established directly on the solder pads where a header would traditionally stand, thus allowing designers to use the opposing side of the PCB for components. Lending itself towards product miniaturization, the SC305/SL305 utilizes METZ CONNECT proven Springcon technology for a secure, vibration resistant connection that automatically adjusts to wires ranging in size from 28 to 16 AWG. With a 5mm centerline, solid wires can be directly inserted for a simple, tool-less connection. The SL305 is a direct solder component and the SC305 is a sleek, snap-fit version for traditional wall-plate applications.


Connection convenience through push-in technology.

No second component necessary (e.g. pin header or female connector).

Contact is made directly on a pad, avoiding drilling for through-contacts at the PC board. This offers space for additional component placements on the opposite side of the PC board.

The small size of the compression contacts allows for a more compact system design size.

Self-cleaning contacting on the PC board due to the punctual support of the compression-mount contacts.

Simple assembling through the elimination of plug-in and pull-out forces.

Spring contact adapts automatically (maintenance-free).

High retention force of the conductor even under vibrations.

No solder process is necessary for wire-to-board applications.
