Phoenix Contact introduced the FKCN 2.5 spring-cage plug connectors and compatible CCDN 2.5 base headers. The innovative push-in spring-cage technology allows rigid and flexible wires with ferrule to be connected quickly without any tools. The connector has a large wire entry so that it can safely support flexible wire ferrules. Wires can be disconnected easily using the orange actuation levers. The accompanying CCDN 2.5 is a double-level, pin-in-paste header, measuring19 mm high. When used together, the FKCN 2.5 and the CCDN 2.5 support the trend of smaller electronics components by creating more free space on the board.
