Twin Push-in Terminal Inserts

Press release date: Jul 01, 2017

Easier connection for heavy-duty connectors in common transmission lines

The new Twin-PT contact inserts from Phoenix Contact are the first HEAVYCON inserts available with Push-in termination for two conductors per contact. This enables two conductors to be wired in one contact point easily and without special tools.

With these inserts, the user saves time, installation space, and an additional marshaling level. The heavy-duty contact inserts are compatible with many common transmission lines, so they can be combined with other housings and connection mechanisms. They are well-suited for not only standard housing types but also for box-mounting bases and EVO double-outlet plug housings.

Using these bridging elements, multiplication of potential can be implemented directly in the connector. This opens up new possibilities in power transmission and high-position signal wiring. The Twin-PT inserts are available with a fixed number of positions as well as a modular insert design for use in the B-series housings. Inserts with single Push-in Technology are also being introduced for use in the compact D-series housings.
