New Vertical Screw-Lock Pluggable Terminal Blocks

Mechanicsburg, PA - Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc (ASI) has recently expanded their broad line of pluggable printed circuit board terminal blocks to include vertical terminal blocks with a screw-locking feature similar to that found in many other types of connectors.

The plug, which is available in a wide range of pin spacing from 5mm to 5.08mm and in sizes from 2 to 20 positions, comes equipped with a flange on each end that has a locking screw.
