Expansion of the A-Series range of terminal blocks to include new universal and application blocks. Convincing, currently exclusive solution concept for panel building.
Weidmüller has expanded its range of Klippon® Connect terminal blocks with further versions of the A-Series, including fuse, separation and triple-deck terminal blocks in the universal range and motor-connection terminals in the application range. All the new terminal blocks incorporate the fast PUSH IN connection technology. Furthermore, variants with pivoting fuse attachments or disconnecting levers are being added to the range of potential distribution blocks for control voltage distribution. These are the perfect complement to the existing solutions. Together with the terminal blocks without fusing and the maxGUARD control voltage distribution with built-in electronic load monitoring, they complement the range to produce reliable surge current protection and clear, structured power distribution. The new potential distribution terminal blocks with fusing or isolation also enable both alternating and grouped structures. The choice between the two design options allows the user to adapt the control voltage distribution accurately to the space available in the control cabinet.
The Klippon® Connect range of terminal blocks offers various convincing benefits throughout the entire panel building process. Whether through simple handling, more space in the control cabinet or time saved during installation, Klippon® Connect makes a significant contribution towards increasing productivity, efficiency and safety. The overall range is divided into a universal range and an application range. The particular requirements determine which is the most suitable.
Klippon® Connect: the universal range
The well thought-out, function-oriented Klippon® Connect universal range allows perfect-fit solutions to a consistent standard. Whether using screw or spring connections – the wide range of products using the established Weidmüller cable connection systems create an efficient, flexible solution for a wide range of applications in the control cabinet. The products in the Klippon® Connect A-Series have a range of convincing highlights, from PUSH IN technology with coloured pushers through to standardised cross-connections and consistent check and test points.
Triple-deck terminal blocks with PUSH IN connection
The new 5.1 mm wide PUSH IN triple-deck terminal blocks with a rated connection of up to 2.5 mm2 allow for space-saving wiring within a confined space. There are five variants available. The combination of three potentials on one terminal block and unique, clear markings ensure compact and structured wiring. The range includes distributor and feed-through terminals. The PUSH IN system with coloured pushers guarantees rapid connection of solid and stranded wires with and without wire-end ferrules. The variant with potential, neutral wire and PE connection enables alternating current motors to be installed even in very confined spaces. Coloured, plug-in cross-connections also considerably reduce wiring times. All cable connections have a check and test point, which takes a 2.0 mm standard test plug. This means the necessary measurements, wiring tests and trouble-shooting can be carried out very quickly and easily. The new triple-deck terminal blocks with PUSH IN connection fully satisfy the latest industry standards for efficient and clear wiring.
Separator and fuse terminal blocks with PUSH IN connection
The Klippon® Connect universal range now includes 6.1 mm wide separator and fuse terminal blocks with PUSH IN connection and a rated connection of up to 4 mm2. The separator terminal blocks have an orange separator blade to make them easier to identify. The pivoting multi-functional holder on the fuse terminal block takes 5 x 20 G-fuse inserts. G-fuses (fine fuses) are available for various rated currents from 0.032 to 20 Amperes. They act as a surge protection system to protect the device. An LED status indicator integrated into the fuse holder displays the status of the fuse and enables fast maintenance. The consistent check and test point on the terminal and the two test points on the fuse holder also play a role here. The test points are designed for 2.0 mm standard test plugs. Multiple fuse holders can be combined in one block. Multiple fuse holders can be combined in one block from which individual fuse holders can be pivoted out using a screwdriver. This makes all fuses easy to replace. The new, universal terminal blocks in the Klippon® Connect A-Series can be combined in any way. The fuse, separator and feed-through terminal blocks can all be slotted onto TS35 terminal rails. As the contours are the same, potential and fused potential can easily be distributed. Two integrated cross-connection channels increase flexibility and shorten wiring times. All cross-connectors can be easily adapted and identified.
Klippon® Connect: the application range
Control cabinets are configured and produced individually. However, in virtually all industries, there are certain applications that require recurring parts in the control cabinet. Weidmüller has identified and developed special solutions for these application fields.
Klippon® Connect for control voltage distribution
For control voltage distribution applications, Weidmüller offers a new range of potential distributor terminal blocks from the innovative A-Series. The terminal blocks allow particularly clear, compact designs for control voltage distribution. The consistent design and simple cross connection options save space and avoid wiring errors. The two possible designs – alternating and grouped – increase flexibility for the user.
The new potential distribution terminal blocks in the range are available as fuse or separator blocks. The pivoting multi-functional holder on the fuse block takes 5 x 20 G-fuse inserts. An LED status indicator built into the fuse holder visualises the status of the fuse and enables fast maintenance. The consistent check and test point on the terminal and the two test points on the fuse holder also play a role here. The test points are designed for 2.0 mm standard test plugs. Markings can be fitted both to the fuse holder and to every contact point. The coloured pushers display the relevant potential to the user. Multiple fuse holders can be combined in one block from which individual fuse holders can be pivoted out using a screwdriver. This means all fuses can be easily replaced. The disconnector terminal enables efficient trouble-shooting. Systematic closure of the opened electric circuits enables the user to identify error sources quickly. The innovative PUSH IN connection system for the Klippon® Connect A-Series allows even stranded wires to be connected without using special tools; the user simply operates the pusher. Two cross-connection channels allow a quick extension of the control voltage distribution.
Klippon® Connect for the motor connection
Another addition to the Klippon® Connect application range are the A-Series 5.1 mm wide motor-connection terminals for efficient connection of an alternating current motor. All three phases plus the PE connector can be connected quickly while saving space. The PE connection takes the form of an Omega spring, i.e. as soon as the user slots the terminal onto the terminal rail, a reliable contact is established.
Based on the idea of one terminal block per motor, the user can ensure the layout in the control cabinet is very clear. This is of great benefit considering the increasing complexity of the systems. The motor-connection terminals can be used both with and without built-in end plates. The variant with built-in end plate can be used for 800 Volt applications. Efficient potential distribution within the motor-connection terminal is made possible by the use of vertical cross-connections, while individual levels are quickly and safely connected. A consistent cross-connection channel at each level increases flexibility and saves wiring time. The cross-connectors can be adapted and identified easily. The consistent check and test point on each level makes maintenance and trouble-shooting easier. Strip markers ensure effective equipment identification as they are very quick to produce and attach in strips.
