Company announces release of new IEC terminal blocks

ASI has released new terminal blocks for PV applications with a reported 1000V dc rating.

05/27/2011


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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
