Phoenix Contact announces UT screw terminal blocks

December 042008
December 4, 2008 - Phoenix Contact's screw-connection terminal blocks now includes knife disconnect, component and feed-through terminal blocks with 2.5 mm2 cross sections. The new UT 2.5-MT, -TG, and -MTD terminal blocks save space while providing a full range of functionality.

A compact design with common profile conserves valuable DIN rail space. The uniform dual-bridge channel delivers quick and easily configurable distribution. Like the UT 4 and UT 6 series, the UT 2.5 terminal blocks, which are UL rated for 300 V (MT, TG) and 600 V (MTD), support switchgear and control system applications.

The UT (Universal Terminal) products combine the advantages of secure screw connection technology with the Reakdyne principle, a patented design that prevents screw back-out. This makes UT ideal for variable temperature or high vibration environments. The UT series is part of Phoenix Contact's CLIPLINE Complete system, which features standardized push-in bridging, marking and testing accessories for all connection technologies.
