Phoenix Contact is extending its portfolio with PCB terminal blocks for PROFINET-compliant data transmission.
Each of the 4-position PCB terminal blocks have been designed specially for the connection of twisted pair cables with cross-sections of 0.14 mm² to 4 mm². The conductors are connected via spring- or screw connection technology. Printed or color-coded connection points allow easy assignment of the conductors. With horizontal, vertical, and angled conductor connection directions, the PCB terminal blocks are suitable for a variety of device designs.
All versions satisfy the requirements of the PROFINET directive, Rev. 05/2017, and are therefore suitable for secure CAT5 data transmission in accordance with EN 50173 and ISO/IEC 11801. Some versions are also certified for use in potentially explosive areas in accordance with IEC 60079-7.
