Terminal Blocks Target Industrial and Instrumentation Apps

Mon, 11/29/2010 - 6:49am
FCI, a leading developer of connectors and interconnect systems, announced the expansion of its terminal blocks product portfolio with new plug and socket configurations, all ideal for industrial and instrumentation applications.

“Terminal blocks have been around for many years, but they are still going strong. They are essential for many circuit board designs,” said Koos Steding, FCI’s global product manager. “With a complete pluggable terminal blocks range, FCI strengthens its position in the industrial and instrumentation market.”

The expanded line will make available various new configurations including front screw, key backside, contact downside plugs and 2-wall, 45º-angled, feedthrough sockets, and accessories such as polarization keys. All configurations are available with or without the screw-locking-side-flange feature. Green-colored plastic is standard but optional black, blue and grey color plastics are also available. Screw-type option, slotted or Philips (cross-head) screw-types are now available, as well as custom product printing. The entire FCI terminal block range is built with the proven rising-cage-clamp technology (lift system) to ensure long life and reliable connections.

In its continuing effort to supply superior customer service, an enhanced terminal block micro-site enables customers to find the products of their choice within three clicks. It shows four major product categories by photo, and when one of the four photos is clicked, the user is guided to the product details within that category. After selecting a product, the user is immediately directed to a dedicated web page with all product details including specifications, customer drawings and 3D mechanical models.

The terminal block micro-site offers customers direct access to product solutions and provides downloadable information such as product brochures, catalogs, product training videos and an online cross-reference.
