The EB4862 screwless terminal block from Omni Pro incorporates a Push-To-Connect system that enables easy insertion of solid wires without depressing the lever or stranded wires using the lever
Omni Pro Electronics has introduced the EB4862 Series of Easy-Wiring “Screwless” Terminal Blocks by EBY Electro. These push-button terminal blocks feature a finger-friendly lever that requires minimal force for operation. They come in a modular design with 30 positions and can be colour coded to prevent wiring errors. The blocks allow for easy customization of colour coding to match wire colours. The EB4862 series incorporate a Push-To-Connect system that enables easy insertion of solid wires without depressing the lever or stranded wires using the lever. The terminal blocks have a 37° angled wire entry and a clear view of wire entry and lever on the same 45° plane. They have a wide electrical and mechanical range and are designed for durability with UL 94V-0 Polyamide PA66 Insulator Body Material and brass contact block material with tin plating. The terminal blocks have an operating temperature range of -40°C to 119°C and are suitable for applications such as irrigation controls, Wi-Fi controllers, thermostats, pool/spa controls, keypads, sensors, detectors, and alarms. The terminal blocks have a voltage rating of 300 VAC and a current rating of 8 Amps and it can accept wire sizes from 14 to 22 AWG.
An easy electric terminal blocks play a crucial role in electrical systems by providing convenient, secure, and flexible connections. Their importance lies in simplifying wiring processes, enhancing safety, facilitating troubleshooting, offering cost-effective solutions, and enabling versatility in different applications. It serves as a connection point for electrical conductors, allowing them to be easily connected or disconnected without the need for soldering or special tools.
The company claims that the wire entry and lever are made on the same 45° plane, the angle allows a clear view of the wire entry and lever. The wide electrical and mechanical range of .300in (7.62mm) centerline also aids in rapid field wiring. These screwless terminal blocks are designed for durability, housed in a UL 94V-0 Polyamide PA66 Insulator Body Material and contact block material made of brass with tin plating. Its wire retention spring is made of stainless steel.
