Already know what you're looking for? Then use our shortcuts. Or get more detailed information about our products below.

Shortcuts

Regardless of the sector, terminal blocks play an important role in industry. The terminal blocks and accessories you need depend on various factors. Whether it's a particular cable size, special connection technology or a really unusual function, you're the best person to know what terminal blocks you need. Our shortcuts take you to an overview of our connection technologies and our universal and application ranges. We'll make it easy for you to find exactly the terminal blocks and other products that you need.

Connection technology

Are you looking for the right connection technology for your control cabinet? In conjunction with our terminal blocks, at Weidmüller we offer you diverse technologies for connecting wires, cables and conductors together safely in your control cabinets. You can rely upon our innovative solutions such as SNAP IN technology, which allows the direct connection of flexible conductors and wire-end ferrules. Or perhaps you'd prefer our tried-and-tested screw connection technology. Whatever you need, we have the solution. Which technology do you prefer?

Universal range

Terminal blocks are the connectors between your control cabinet and the incoming cables from the field. As such, they're indispensable in industry, whatever the sector. However, terminal blocks are as diverse as the sectors in which they are used. From the most commonly used terminal blocks such as feed-through terminals to special types of terminal block such as terminal blocks with electronic components, our extensive universal range includes exactly the terminal blocks that you need for your control cabinet. Which terminal type is perfect for you?

Application range

Are you looking for custom-fit terminal blocks for a specific application? We'll make the search for the perfect terminal blocks as easy as possible. You can search our products not only for specific terminal blocks or connection technologies but also by application type. Naturally, special requirements will need to be met depending on where your terminal blocks are going to be used. Our extensive portfolio includes terminal blocks for all usage areas.

Product news

Our work is characterised by innovation and progress. We're true pioneers in the field of panel building. For example, in 1948, we placed the first plastic terminal blocks onto the market. We've come a long way since then, and we repeatedly launch product innovations to ensure that you can easily master all of the problems you face. With our innovations in the field of terminal blocks and other products, you'll remain ahead of the curve and be able to meet all of the requirements of Industry 4.0.

Simply insert stripped fine-stranded conductors into the connection point and the connection point snaps shut with a clearly audible click. The conductor is permanently and reliably contacted. To release the connection, press the pusher. It couldn't be faster or easier.

Decentralised systems save space in the control cabinet, but the components have to be installed in small, flat distribution boxes. This leads to new wiring challenges.

The new Klippon® Connect terminal blocks with lateral PUSH IN connection combine the advantages of PUSH IN and screw connection technology. Conductors can be connected without a bending radius, without tools. This reduces the installation height and increases clarity, as markings and functional areas remain clearly visible even when wired.

Automation in the process industry requires flexible solutions for complex production processes. Your circuit diagrams are no less complex and often undergo changes shortly before the end. With our new range of DCS marshalling terminal blocks you can solve these challenges. Even a „last minute change“ is feasible for you without having to change the wiring you have already done.

Thanks to the single and double-level arrangement of the terminal blocks, combined with the provision of the four basic functions (continuity, disconnect, fuse, ground), you achieve maximum flexibility when connecting your devices wired in the field. We also offer you an alternative to connecting the shield to PE for your potential-free shielding concepts.

The number of sensors and actuators in the field is growing. More and more potentials have to be wired, fused, or even separated in the control cabinet. One example is servomotors with the potentials plus, minus, or PE. They require clear wiring, including fused potential.

The new two-tier terminals of the A2T 4 FS and A2T 4 DT series combine up to three functions per terminal. For example, you can choose between "disconnect, continuity, PE" or "fuse, continuity, PE". Sensors and actuators can be wired conveniently and clearly on just one terminal block. The potentials can be fused or also disconnected. Cross-connection channels on each level ensure safe potential distribution on the terminal strip.

Increasing automation increases the number of sensors and actuators within the plant. With constant space conditions within the switchgear cabinet, these sensors and actuators must be wired clearly. More compact designs of the components and the increase in wiring density are the resulting requirements for the control cabinet components.

Our A3T 1.5 three-level terminal blocks with 3.5 mm pitch meet these requirements. Depending on the variant, they each carry a different or a common potential on three levels. In this way, up to 60 conductors can be contacted and 30 different potentials can be routed on a width of 3.5 cm. In addition, each potential can be connected to the neighbouring terminal block via a ZQV cross-connection. This achieves maximum wiring density.
