The terminal block consists of a modular shell and an insulator, which can fix two or more wires together. Terminals are also called terminal connectors, connecting terminals or screw terminals, and are used in various applications that require safe connection to electrical systems. They are ideal for designs that require safe, orderly and semi-permanent wire connections, which can be easily replaced for on-site inspection or repair.
When designing a system that will use terminal blocks, you may understand your overall system voltage and current requirements. Although these are very important, there are other factors to consider in your design. Using terminal blocks is a better solution for connecting wires. Terminal blocks provide greater flexibility. When using terminal blocks, wiring modifications are easy because wires can be removed or added quickly. The wiring terminal is neat and orderly, which is convenient for quick identification, and makes modification and troubleshooting easier.
Terminals are classified according to characteristics such as structure, device type, and termination options. Let us discuss some classifications and characteristics of terminal blocks commonly used in today's industry. A terminal block is a component with an insulating frame whose sole purpose is to fix two or more wires together. Terminal blocks are classified according to characteristics such as structure, device type, and termination options.
