Terminal blocks plug into a mating socket, with a push-in-design for connecting wires to the blocks

Dinkle's pluggable terminal blocks are a series of products with a unique push-in-design for connecting wires. The plug fits into the socket, and the wires connect to the socket via a patented push-in-design.

According to Dinkle, wires connected using its push-in-design require 75% less time per wire installation. The pluggable terminal blocks are available in a wide variety of sizes and ratings. Pitch varies from 2.54-6.35 mm, with wire ranges from 30-16 to 24-12 AWG. Current ratings are 5-8 amps at 150 Vac, 8-16 amps at 300 Vac, and 20 amps at 600 Vac. Connection methods are V-type spring or S-Cage single, double and rail type.

An LED at each connection point is on when current is flowing through the wire, with LED light pipes integral to the terminal block assemblies used to ensure each LED is clearly visible. Various selections of mounting methods contribute to a vibration-proof, secure connection. These terminal blocks are meant to be installed within PLCs, I/O modules, signal panels, etc.
