Weidmüller launches a feed-through terminal for tight spaces
14 December 2012
Weidmüller's new OMNIMATE PGK 4 through-panel terminal is suitable for those occasions when a flexible, space-saving connection system is needed.
The PGK4 feed-through terminal is convenient and cost effective, enabling simple and secure installation in housing walls. It incorporates Weidmüller's novel PUSH IN tool-less connection system, which is easy to use and achieves vibration-resistant contacts.
Stranded wire conductors with a ferrule (DIN 46228/1) and single-stranded conductors can be directly plugged in on the PGK 4 feedthrough terminals. Conductor connections with a cross-section of up to 4.0mm² with ferrules are possible, and users can perform a simple function check at any time using the easily accessible diagnostic test points.
The PGK 4's ease-of-use lowers the cost of installation. The connection blocks enable a large numbers of poles to be quickly and simply assembled, without taking up valuable space, thanks to the 'slice' construction. Users can engage the slices very easily and fix the terminal block in the housing cut-out in a matter of seconds, according to Weidmüller. Moreover, the terminal block engagement mechanism ensures a safe and reliable hold for the device feed-through and is suitable for panels between 1.50mm and 3.00mm thick.
Halogen-free materials are used throughout and these terminals have been granted numerous approvals for wide ranging applications. The PGK 4 feedthrough terminal complies with IEC 60947-7-1 (rated voltage of 500V, rated impulse voltage of 6kV, rated current of 32A). The terminals are made from Wemid and have a flammability rating V-0, according to UL94. The Wemid insulating material will tolerate continuous operating temperatures up to 120°C.
The PGK 4 feedthrough terminals can be clearly labelled on the top and bottom such that the legend can always be read regardless of mounting position. The user can use Weidmüller's "dekafix 5.5" standard marking system for this purpose.
OMNIMATE PGK 4 samples are available within 72 hours of order, to any location worldwide.
