TE Connectivity completes its offering to machine builders by integrating the extensive portfolio of ENTRELEC terminal blocks
DARMSTADT, Germany – Oct. 25, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is now offering an extensive range of connection technologies for machinery following the acquisition of ABB’s ENTRELEC terminal block business. Combined with TE’s existing offering of HDC power connectors for machinery and robotics, the ENTRELEC SNK terminal blocks and DBL power distribution blocks ensure the efficient supply and distribution of power inside control cabinets.
To solve the space optimization challenges of machinery builders, the SNK and DBL ranges were designed to deliver more features in minimum space while providing high performances in versatile options.
Worldwide certifications from UL, IEC, EAC and CSA allow SNK and DBL ranges to be specified and used globally in all types of equipment and machinery. Meeting specific certifications, such as using the products in marine or explosive environments for SNK products, show the polyvalence and high quality of the TE ENTRELEC product range, hence they can be used and proposed with confidence in highly sensitive projects.
To meet customers’ wiring habits while optimizing wiring time and productivity of OEMs, the SNK series offers three types of connection technology: screw, PI-spring and pluggable.
“SNK pluggable technology provides customers with many benefits including fast and error-free installation,” said Anna-Line Escoffier, global product manager for TE’s ENTRELEC products. “SNK also eases transportation, set-up and final commissioning of machines at customers’ premises thanks to the pre-wired harnesses that just need to be plugged onto terminal blocks”
DBL power distribution blocks offer touch proof and compact¬--up to 12 outputs within 46mm spacing--power distribution within panels and enclosures. From 80 to 400 amps, DBL distribution blocks match all machinery usage thanks to their exclusive modular design, allowing an easy installation and great flexibility of use.
