Screw Terminal Blocks - the most common connection type and made with a stripped wire and screwdriver. For the most stringent requirements: the screw connection has also proven itself in the wiring of large conductor cross sections.

Spring Connection Terminal Blocks
The special contact spring allows easy insertion and guarantees a high level of contact quality.

Push-In Terminal Blocks - Easy insertion
With push-in connection technology, you can easily connect conductors from 0.25 mm² both directly and without the need for tools.

Fast Connection Terminal Blocks - Contacting within seconds
No stripping, no crimping – simply cut the cable to length and it makes contact within seconds.

Barrier Terminal Block - used whenever vibration is an issue typically in rail or transportation industries. Use with spade or ring terminal connected placed over the bolt and secure nut over bolt. This will resist loosening from vibration.

You insert the wire into the terminal port.
