Multiple level terminal blocks from ASI are available in a wide range of types, all designed to save space, reduce labor and increase the functionality of your circuit design.
Opening a circuit or adding a fuse, as is often needed in control loop applications, is easy with the ASI terminal blocks. The 3-wire sensor terminal blocks are designed to eliminate costly jumpers and reduce the time to connect sensors together. Improving wiring, as in the case of twisted shielded pair wires or connecting to solenoids and actuators, can be improved with ASI functional terminal blocks. Adding electronic components such as diodes, varistors, capacitors, resistors or special circuits can be easily accomplished with the multiple level component holder terminal blocks from ASI. The special function multiple level terminal blocks from ASI include the following models:
2 level with feed through on the bottom level and disconnect circuit on the upper level
Low cost, easy to install, multiple level blocks for 3-wire sensors
3 level blocks for feed to sensor blocks or to save 33% more space, also in (Ex)i
2 level blocks, with ground, for twisted pair and grounding all in one block
2 level, with ground, for actuator connections using low cost jumpers
2 level with feed through on the bottom level and a fuse on the upper level
2 level with screw clamp connections on one side and pluggable connectors on the other
2 level spring clamp connection with open circuits and ability to add components such as resistors, diodes and capacitors internally
2 level blocks designed to accept components and a test plug
These special function multiple level terminal blocks save a lot of space in the cabinet and they reduce installation time and costs. Many have features that make them a much better alternative to other products on the market. In addition to these ASI has the capability of designing a printed circuit board with components that can be mounted in the terminal block. Several standard models of electronic component terminal blocks can be found in the section multiple level terminal blocks with electronic components.
ASI's broad range of marking products will save you both Time and Money. They include terminal block labels, wire markers, name plates, and much more Learn More...
Catalog No. / Description
Screw Clamp Connection 2-Level Disconnect DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block
Two level terminal block with circuit disconnect on the upper level and a feed through wire circuit on the lower level.
Rated for a wire range of 26-10 AWG
Will accept the low-cost push in jumper, "Easy Bridge" to connect adjacent circuits.
This is a space saving terminal block that is ideal for two wire circuits where you need to open up one side of the circuit for testing. .
Screw clamp wire connections
Circuit disconnect knife lever for opening circuits without removing wires.
Type UKJ-DOK1.5RD/O-M, Screw clamp 3 level DIN rail mount terminal block with upper level feed through, middle level supplies power to acutuator and lower level is ground, with Red LED for optical signaling, 24-14 AWG, gray
Type TLS.2/GR, Screw Clamp Connection 3-Level Sensor DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block, 20-12 AWG, with built-in bussing system, Gray
List Price $3.44 each Packages of 200
Screw Clamp Connection 3-Level Solenoid DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block
A 3-level terminal block with ground connection on the lower level, a common connection on the second level and a feed through connection on the upper level. The TLE.2 is typically used in wiring circuits for actuators.
The ability to ground a wire at the terminal block, jumper between terminal blocks and have a feed through circuit all in one makes the TLE a space and time saver.
Type TDE.2/GR, Screw Clamp Connection DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block, 2-Level Feed-Thru with a Ground level, 20-12 AWG, Gray
List Price $5.74 each Packages of 125
Screw Clamp Connection 2-Level DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block, Accepts Blade/Cartridge Fuse On Upper Level
Double level terminal block with a feed through circuit on the bottom level and a fuse circuit on the upper level.
The low voltage popular blade type fuse with a voltage rating up to 32 volts is used in this terminal block in order to maintain an overall width of only 6mm to save space in the panel.
Fuse capability is ideal for two wire circuits such as in a control loop where you need to provide fuse protection
Also accepts CPF/5 5x20mm fuse/diode holder
Accepts 1 - 30 amp, up to 32 Vdc, fast acting mini blade style fuses such as Bussman®ATM type, Littlefuse®297 or FK1 series and Wickmann® FK1 series according to DIN 72581/3F - ISO8820 fuse specifications
Fuses color coded for easy recognition of amperage rating
Type DSFA.4/GR, Screw Clamp Connection 2-Level DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block, Accepts Blade/Cartridge Fuse On Upper Level, 26 to 10 AWG, 300 Volts
List Price $5.56 each Packages of 100
2 Level Pluggable Feed-Thru DIN Rail Mounted Terminal Block
The VPD.2 is a double level terminal block which uses screw clamp connections on one side of the terminal block and has a pin for an industry standard plug connection terminal block on the opposite side.
accepts a plug with 5.08mm pin spacing and it can be used in multiples from 2 positions to 20 positions on both the upper and lower levels.
The upper and lower levels are not connected together.
An (ex)i version is also available and both this and the standard model accepts the easy bridge jumper system.
