Dinkle International announces the DP2.5SG sensor/actuator terminal block family, providing adaptable cable connectivity options for a variety of automation needs.
A modular design based around DP2.5SG terminal blocks—single-level pass-through type mountable on a standard DIN rail—provides flexible installation options for a variety of applications. Additional components are available to add easily recognizable color-coded distribution of positive (red) and negative (blue) power, and ground earth potential (green/yellow) connections as needed. An optional pluggable terminal block is available for even more convenient factory-to-field wiring installation.
The resulting assembly provides the advantage of compactly combining all signal connections for sensors and actuators requiring two-wire, three-wire, and four-wire installation while saving up to 75% of panel space over traditional multi-terminal installations.
Contact materials are tin-plated copper alloy, using push-in design (PID) for reliable wire terminations over an operating temperature range of -40 to +115 DegC. Exclusive PID connectivity enables tool-free insertion of solid wires, stranded wires, or ferrules, saving up to 60% of the wiring time compared to screw-based methods.
The signal terminal blocks carry a UL rating of 600V and 20A, accepting wires ranging from 26 to 12AWG; power distribution terminal blocks are rated for 300V and 10A, with wires ranging from 26 to 14AWG.
Each terminal block is 5.08mm wide, available individually or in preinstalled kits of 4, 8, 14, 18, and 24 poles. The components are UL recognized, ROHS and REACH compliant, and carry the CE marking.
All Dinkle connector products support the Industry 4.0 trend by helping users create solutions for connecting power, networking, and communications to support increasingly complex equipment and automation solutions in all types of environments.
