The socket is usually attached to a printed circuit board through pins. The plug fits into the socket, and the wires connect to the socket via the company’s patented push-in-design. Screw terminals take time to tighten properly, and are subject to under- and over torqueing. By contrast, wires connected using this push-in technology assure a secure connection, with about 75% less time required per wire installation: Connecting a solid wire with push-in-design takes only 3.6 seconds, compared to 13.5 seconds for a screw connection. A flexible wire takes just 4.1 seconds to connect, while a screw terminal takes 14.4 seconds. A flexible wired with a ferrule takes only 3.7 seconds to connect, compared to 13.2 seconds for a screw terminal. Pluggable terminal blocks are available in a wide variety of sizes and ratings. Pitch varies from 2.54 to 6.35 mm, with wire ranges from 30-16 to 24-12 AWG. Current ratings are 5 to 8 amps at 150 VAC, 8 to 16 amps at 300 VAC, and 20 amps at 600 VAC. Connection methods are V-type spring (not patented), or patented S-Cage single, double and rail type. Value-added customization services include label printing, and supplying blocks in assorted color combinations. An LED at each connection point indicates when current is flowing.
