"Classic" feed through terminal blocks from ASI are among the highest quality screw-clamp wire connection terminal blocks on the market today.  Used successfully for decades in applications ranging from power plants to chemical plants, on ships, in packaging machinery, and anywhere the highest possible quality connections are required, the "Classic" terminal block approvals are international and include UL, cUL, CESI ATEX Ex e, Lloyds Register for shipbuilding, KEMA, and ENEL, to name a few.

 The Classic or CBD series even passed the stringent testing and reliability requirements used for the nuclear power industry and earned the prestigious Class 1E approval rating for use in nuclear power plants.

At the heart of the highly reliable CBD or "Classic" terminal block family is a full metal body that is made from a copper alloy and then treated with nickel plating to insure a long lasting, reliable connection in every possible environment.  The screw is a high tensile material to eliminate thread stripping problems during the wiring process and it, along with the clamp, is plated to insure no problems with corrosion.  The screw and clamp combination are designed in such a way that when terminated to the wire a reverse force is applied to the screw head thereby eliminating the possibility of loosening under vibration, a feature that has been well proven to be reliable through these blocks extensive use in the shipbuilding industry.  Another feature of the CBD "Classic" series of terminal blocks is the UL94V0 housing, which is the highest flammability rating offered by UL.

The terminal blocks accept a screw-in jumper for reliable jumpering of adjacent circuits.  The robust mounting foot of the Classic or CBD series of terminal blocks insures it always remains in place on the rail and is designed with a universal mount that can be mounted on the most popular DIN rails.  The wide funnel opening insures that the wire will be directed into the terminal block for proper termination each and every time.

Several different marking systems and labels are available, including the option of printing custom labels using the low-cost printing system from ASI.  The Classic CBD series of terminal blocks accepts wires ranging from 20 AWG and smaller all the way up to a 4/0 cable or wire, with current ratings up to 220 amps, and additional terminal block series are available with even higher current ratings.

Customers have the option of ordering the "Classic" or CBD series as individual units to build their own assemblies or ASI now offers a service which can save you even more time and money, have ASI build your assembly from your drawing so that you'll only have to order one part number.
