Taicom’s pluggable terminal block range expanded to meet the demands for faster PCB connectivity.
The Taicom pluggable terminal blocks have been primarily designed for “in the field” connection where they can help reduce assembly time and down time in the event of a PCB failure or upgrade. They are particularly suited to industrial applications where down time needs to be kept to a minimum. Due to their outstanding performance these pluggable connectors have also found their way into many other applications that can benefit from the ease of a plug and socket mating system.
This range of industry standard two part pluggable terminal blocks is available on a wide variety of pin pitches, 3.5mm, 3.81mm, 5mm, 5.08mm and 10mm and offers the choice of horizontal or vertical mounting directions.
The pluggable blocks all feature combi screws making them suitable for use with either a flat bladed screwdriver or a Phillips screwdriver and are also suitable for use with pneumatic tools for high speed assembly processes. Screws are captive in the housing to prevent them falling out during wiring.
Two styles of pluggable block are available, Plug and Pin Strip or Plug and Socket/Header type.
and Pin Strip types are available in 5mm or
10mm pitch with the plugs featuring wire protection guards and the
capability of vertical
or horizontal mounting on the pin strip. Furthermore, they have an interlocking
dovetail system so that any permutation of ways can be made to the customer’s
specific requirement. The PCB mounting pin strip is supplied in 24 way
(5mm pitch) or 12 way (10mm pitch) and can be broken down to the required
numbers of ways.
and Socket/Header types are available in 3.5mm, 3.81mm, 5.0mm
and 5.08mm pitch and feature polarised and latched mating to prevent
incorrect connection or accidental disconnection. The plugs also utilise
the superior rising clamp wire protection system, which offers improved
wire retention and greater resistance to vibration. Supplied in either
right angle or straight form the plugs have the option of a reversed
body on the straight plug to allow maximum versatility. The socket/headers
are available in vertical or right angle PCB mounting styles and have
closed ends, with the option of open ends on the 5.0mm and 5.08mm pitches.
Both pluggable systems employ high quality glass filled polyamide mouldings, flame retardant to UL94V-0, and are offered in 2 to 12 ways throughout with the option of other numbers of ways to customer’s specific request.
