Quick and reliable pushbutton connections with Series 04 push-in terminals

05 November 2010

EAO, the Expert Partner for Human Machine Interfaces, is offering a new spring terminal connector technology for the popular Series 04 switches suitable for 22.5mm and 30.5mm mounting.

The Series 04 PIT (push-in terminal), which features a spring terminal connection from Phoenix Contact, reduces assembly times by up to 70% compared to screw terminals. It offers reliable, vibration resistant connections without the need for any assembly tools.

To achieve a secure connection, just push the stripped solid conductor into the spring terminal which applies the correct pressure to maintain a secure connection over the lifetime of the switch. For stranded wire, either push-in using a bootlace ferrules, or open the clamp with a screwdriver for bare wire.

The PIT is available on switch elements and lamp blocks, which are stackable, to give up to six contacts per switch. They can be used with pushbuttons, selector switches, key lock switches and emergency-stops.

Series 04 equipment offers front protection of IP65 and is rated 500VAC.

EAO Series 04 PIT will benefit any application where fast and reliable assembly techniques are a top priority - especially with transportation, mechanical engineering and process automation
