WEIDMULLER has released the slimmest terminal blocks on the market. With a width of only 3.5mm, the new ZDU 1.5 DIN rail mount terminal block occupies 42 per cent less space on the TS 35 mounting rails.
The new product line includes the ZDU 1.5, ZDU 1.5/3AN and ZDU 1.5/4AN feed through terminal blocks, featuring tension clamp connection with TOP wire entry design.
The high-contact force of the tension clamp system guarantees a permanent connection of the clamped range of 28-16 AWG.
The rated voltage/current for these terminals is 300V/10A.
Made from Weidmuller's WEMID thermoplastic insulating material, this terminal is UL, VDE and CSA approved and meets UL 94 VO, fire resistance standards.
"The trend towards smaller switchgear cabinets, distribution boards and enclosures is very strong across a broad range of industries," says Peter Vosper, application support manager at Weidmuller.
"Our ZDU 1.5 terminal blocks are designed to be installed in very confined spaces which are typical applications in the water, petrochemical and transportation markets.
“Original equipment manufacturers also find this space saving product family ideal for a variety of applications,” he added.
