Double Level PCB Terminal Blocks Saves Space
OKW Electronics introduced a range of space saving double level PCB terminal blocks which are manufactured by Camden Electronics. The CTBDD93 series feature high quality rising clamp wire connections and are UL, cUL, CE, VDE and IMQ approved. They available in two standard pitches of 5 mm and 5.08 mm, and are ordered as separate male and female connectors. The two connectors can be mounted vertically, or at 90°, to suit different applications. The double level design of the male connector reduces the required space on the PCB by a half. The terminal blocks are molded in green UL94 V-0 flame retardant PA66, and are supplied in sizes of 4 poles up to a maximum of 24 poles. The male and female connectors consist of individual blocks, or a series of interlocking blocks which make up the number of poles. The female connectors are available with vertical or 90° cable entry, and the male connectors are available with vertical or 90° PCB pins. They feature 14 AWG wire entry, captured fixing screws and guided pin alignment.
