Spring clamp terminal block saves space
ASI's terminal block, which is only 4.2mm wide, was designed to save space by up to 30%, the company said.
Automation Systems Interconnect HD200GR is a 4.2 mm-wide, double level terminal block ideal for applications that need to save space. The HD200GR reportedly offers a space savings of 30% compared to traditional terminal blocks.
The 2-level feed thru terminal block uses spring clamp connection and designed to accept the low-cost push in jumpers, “easy bridge” for connecting adjacent circuits. Rated at 15amps and 600 V, the block is reportedly UL recognized and accepts wires from 24-14 AWG. Housing are molded with UL940 V materials.

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.
