Terminal Blocks

Electrical terminal blocks are a type of electrical connector that utilizes a clamping mechanism to secure and organize wires. They are used to connect different circuits together and can be found in a variety of electrical systems.

General Information

There are several types of terminal blocks, each designed for specific applications and requirements.

  • Barrier Strips: These have a dividing barrier between each terminal, which helps prevent circuit shorting. They are often used in power supply applications.
  • PCB Terminal Blocks: Designed to be mounted on printed circuit boards, they come in various configurations for different applications.
  • DIN Rail Terminal Blocks: These are a specific type of electrical connector designed for secure and convenient mounting on DIN rails, which are standardized metal rails used in equipment rack assemblies. These terminal blocks are widely used in industrial control systems and automation applications due to their ease of installation, organization, and maintenance. They typically feature a modular design, allowing for easy expansion and reconfiguration of circuits.
  • PCB Terminal Blocks: Designed to be mounted on printed circuit boards (PCBs) and are used to secure and connect wires to the PCB. They come in various types and sizes, suitable for different wire gauges and current ratings. They are commonly used in electronic devices to facilitate the easy assembly and connection of components.
