The blocks are available in screw-clamp and spring-clamp wire terminations, include single-level, multiple-level, functional, fuse and other styles of blocks.

Once a jumper is installed it is insulated and touch-proof, being fully seated into the terminal block housing. Jumpers can be removed with 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 PTC jumper installed.
Blocks and PTC Easy Bridge System can be ordered individually to assemble or as a complete assembly. Approvals for the CBC terminal blocks include UL, cUL, ATEX, and KEMA.
Savings of 20% to 50% can be realized through buying the terminal blocks directly online .
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.
