Mechanicsburg, PA - Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc (ASI) has recently expanded their broad line of pluggable printed circuit board terminal blocks. The new pluggable terminal blocks provide a screw locking feature similar to that found in many other types of connectors.
The plug, which is available in a wide range of pin spacing from 5mm to 5.08mm and in sizes from 2 to 24 positions, comes equipped with a flange on each end that has a locking screw. The corresponding pin header which is mounted onto a printed circuit board is equipped with a threaded insert to which the screw from the plug is engaged. The screw-lock plug and header are ideal for those applications where vibration is a concern or where an extra level of security in the wiring connection is desired.
