Conta-Clip's FRK Pressure Spring Connection System Provides Fast, Easy Wire Terminations
Conta-Clip has patented a new, leaf spring clamp connection terminal block design. It provides extremely fast wire termination for solid wire or stranded wire with a ferrule. The FRK Spring Connection System reduces wiring time up to 80% when compared to screw clamp terminations. The system requires no tools and allows fingertip wire installation that is easy and needs minimal insertion force. You just push the wire in and it is wired. Spring pressure ensures excellent wire retention, and the system is vibration and corrosion resistant. Removing a wire is as easy as inserting it. Insert a screwdriver into the housing opening and the wire will instantly release.
The innovative, Conta-Clip FRK Leaf Spring Clamp overcomes wire size and ampicity limitations, conductor breakage, and long term reliability issues associated with the use of IDC connection technologies. The key components of the FRK Pressure Connection System include: a precision formed, stainless steel leaf spring; and a geometrically shaped, copper alloy conducting element (current bar). In combination, these clamp components maximize conductor retention and the contact force, while minimizing the insertion force required to deflect the spring and open the clamp.
The FRK Series includes Feed Through and Ground Terminal Blocks in 2, 3 and 4 clamp configurations. Block widths of 4mm, 5mm and 6mm accommodate wire sizes up to #16, #12 and #10 AWG respectively. Feed trough Terminals are 600V rated and can carry up to 32A.
