ASI introduces miniature terminal blocks that are equivalents to Phoenix Contact
Carlisle, Pa - July 11, 2006 - Miniature Terminal Blocks mount directly on a 15mm DIN rail and are ideal for applications where space is limited or where the application has small enclosures. The ASIMBK series has a current rating up to 50 amps at 300 volts and a wiring capacity of 28 to 8 AWG. Fixed bridges, insertion bridges and switch bars are all available through ASI's website in order to enable reliable power distribution. With ASI's wide range of accessories, these miniature terminal blocks are versatile for just about any type of application.

Along with a new line of miniature terminal blocks, ASI also offers Micro Miniature ASIMT1.5 series and Double Level Miniature ASIMBKKB series Terminal Blocks to satisfy other application needs. The complete new line of terminal blocks has been modeled off the Phoenix Contact line of terminal blocks. ASI terminal blocks are molded with the same UL94V0 material and the metal bodies are a nickel-plated copper alloy to insure quality and reliability in all conditions. The new family of equivalent terminal blocks features the same color, design, dimensions, specifications and materials.

Customers now have a true “equivalent” source and can save 30% to 50% and more by specifying the new equivalent terminal blocks. On the website there is a complete electronic cross-reference to Phoenix Contact, Weidmuller and Allen Bradley along with prices and specifications. In addition, ASI provides rail assembly services to those companies that would prefer to purchase a fully completed rail assembly. The EZ Rail software program assists the customer in developing a DIN rail terminal block assembly.
