The DIN Concept

The heart of the Altech philosophy is the standardized DIN Rail and snap-on terminal block. The DIN Rail makes possible a compact, organized arrangement of terminal blocks and other DIN Rail mount components. This gives more than just the appearance of quality; it saves time and space, enhances design capabilities and provides a centralized connect-disconnect area where external and/or internal wiring can be connected quickly and efficiently. At the same time, the DIN concept allows designers to take advantage of constant advances in terminal block technology. Altech DIN Rail components do more than terminate wires. They distribute power and ground, protect against overloads and perform a host of other sophisticated functions. Whatever the application: control systems, instrumentation, automation—DIN Rail terminal blocks can help you create it and keep it as up-to-date as tomorrow.

Screw Clamp Terminal Block

Altech terminal blocks feature screw clamps for maximum wiring efficiency and reliability. The blocks are supplied with open clamps, ready to accept wires. No special wire preparation or wire lugs are required. Simply strip the wire, insert and tighten the screw to the torque for gas-tight, vibration resistant, solid connections.

The screw clamp design uses a tin-plated, solid copper or solid brass current bar with grooved serration, a steel cage clamp and screws. As the clamp is tightened, the wire is pressed firmly against the current bar, ensuring positive connections every time. The steel parts are zinc plated and passivated by a golden yellow chromate layer for maximum resistance against oxidation.

When applying tightening torques, use our straight blade screwdriver to fit the screw hole guides located in the terminal block housings.

Spring Clamp Connection

The spring clamp series terminal blocks offer a time saving alternative to the popular screw clamp connection.

The pre-stressed spring is opened using a tool (screw driver) so the conductor can be inserted into the insertion space through an opening in the spring leg. The conductor is pulled against the current bar under spring force when the tool is removed.

A high contact force is acheived by the design of the spring clamp system. The design delivers a secure and reliable connection for any application.

Housings

The metal parts of Altech terminal blocks are housed in precision-molded, self-extinguishing polyamide 6.6 material for maximum dielectric strength, electrical insulation and temperature resistance. Standard features on all housings include funnel-shaped wire entry openings and screwdriver guides.

Custom Assemblies

The beauty of the DIN Rail concept is its convenience; the unsurpassed ease with which many different components and devices can be mounted on the same rail.

Altech has made things even easier by making it possible for you to order custom designed assemblies with a single part number or, for that matter, your own drawing number. No need to order a multitude of parts, no more unwanted inventories of bulk-packaged accessories.

Send Altech your drawings or specifications, and our experienced staff will build, mark and ship your assembly, ready for installation. Our on-staff engineers will also assist you in reviewing your drawings.
