Company announces release of new IEC terminal blocks
ASI has released new terminal blocks for PV applications with a reported 1000V dc rating.
Automation Systems Interconnect Inc. (ASI) has announced the release of a complete new line of DIN rail mounted IEC terminal blocks, EZ Jump Terminal Blocks, that are rated at 1000V DC for PV applications. The entire range of EZ Jump terminal blocks has been designed around the easy to install plug in circuit jumper, PTC. The PTC jumper system is a comb of plug in jumpers that can be cut to any number of circuits by the user and it can be modified to allow for alternate circuit jumpers.
The EZ Jump terminal blocks are now reportedly available with wire handling capacity of 20 AWG up to a 1 AWG and current ratings up to 125 amps. The EZ Jump family of terminal blocks includes single level, multiple level, functional, fuse, and numerous other styles of terminal blocks to make a complete selection for the customer. Housings are molded of a UL94V0 polyamide and all materials are RoHs compliant.
Each of the terminal blocks feature 2 locations for the PTC jumpers. Once the jumper is installed it is insulated and touch proof by being fully seated into the EZ Jump terminal block housing. The jumpers can reportedly be removed with the use of a screwdriver for leverage inserted into the jumper slot and an insulator strip can be added over the jumper to provide visual identification of circuits with the PTC jumper installed.
The new EZ Jump terminal blocks and PTC Easy Bridge System can be ordered as individual items and assembled by the customer or they can be ordered as a complete assembly from ASI. Approvals for the CBC terminal blocks include UL, cUL, ATEX and KEMA.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
