Screw-clamp terminal blocks, 3-level design
Phoenix Contact's UT series has a three-level version designed to save space.
Phoenix Contact’s UT series of screw-clamp terminal blocks now comes in a three-level version. The UT 2.5-3L accepts solid, stranded or ferruled wires with 26-12 AWG.
Push-in bridging on each level saves space while distributing power. Vertical bridges electrically connect all three levels to one another. Each terminal point has a large labeling space for easy identification.
The UT 2.5-3L series features Phoenix Contact’s Reakdyne screw-clamp design to prevent screws from backing out. Components are manufactured from corrosion-resistant copper alloy. This robust design makes the terminal blocks ideal for mission-critical applications. The UT line of terminal blocks is widely found in energy, oil and gas, water treatment, machine building and other industrial automation systems.
UT 2.5-3L terminals have current ratings of 300 V at 20 A or 600 V at 5 A under UL file #E60425. These limited ratings are applicable for use in or with industrial control equipment where the load on any single circuit does not exceed 15 A at 51-150V; 10 A at 151-300V; or 5 A at 301-600 V, or the maximum ampere rating, whichever is less.
The series is part of Phoenix Contact's Clipline Complete system, which features standardized push-in bridging, marking and testing accessories for all connection technologies.

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.
