Time is money. For this reason, installation work in control cabinet construction must be carried out ever faster, preferably automated. At the same time, the connections should be permanently reliable, safe, and easy to maintain. The revolutionary SNAP IN technology rounds off the new Klippon® Connect terminal blocks and meets all requirements while being extremely easy to use: Stripped fine-stranded conductors are simply inserted 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 with the smart SNAP IN technology.
SNAP IN completely won over the "German Design Council", and the independent jury awarded Weidmüller the German Innovation Award 2022 for its innovative SNAP IN connection technology. This award honours products and solutions across all industries that distinguish themselves above all through user-centricity and added value compared with previous solutions. The German Innovation Award is the prize that makes innovations visible. That's why it's such an honour for us to receive it!
The new SNAP IN connection technology will take your wiring processes to a whole new level.
Direct and tool-free wiring without wire-end ferrules with the new SNAP IN technology. Simply insert the stripped conductor into the pre-loaded contact point.
The pre-loaded SNAP IN spring connection guarantees a safe and gas-tight connection of the conductor.
The innovative SNAP IN connection technology enables safe wiring in record time. With SNAP IN, even flexible conductors without wire end ferrules can be connected intuitively and without tools, even in fully automated wiring processes. As a pioneer in the field of panel building, we've been shaping the market for years. With the new SNAP IN connection technology, we can take your wiring processes to a whole new level. However, our other connection technologies are just as convincing. Take a look for yourself and find the perfect technology for your plans.
With automated production processes, errors can be avoided, workflows accelerated and costs reduced. This works best with solutions based on each other and thought out down to the last detail. The contours of the new SNAP IN S-Series terminal blocks have been designed to be easily gripped and mounted by industrial robots. This means that there are already no obstacles to automated assembly.
Marking terminal blocks is usually a time-consuming process with a high risk of error. For this reason, the design of the SNAP IN terminal blocs in the S-Series has been optimised for fully automatic laser marking, bringing a time saving of up to 90%. In combination with the Weidmüller Configurator (WMC), the Klippon® Automated RailLaser achieves the highest possible marking quality and lowest possible error rate.
Full order books and a growing lack of skilled workers are driving digitalisation and automation in control cabinet production. That is why Klippon® Connect SNAP IN terminal blocks are already prepared for tomorrow's automation processes. The simple and safe handling of SNAP IN technology facilitates the use of automated wiring processes and prevents incorrect wiring. Thanks to the launch of the "Smart Cabinet Building" initiative, Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken and Armbruster Engineering are able to provide manual, assisted and fully automated solutions as well as extensive services for panel building.
Thanks to digitalisation and automation, panel building is developing rapidly. By purchasing a Weidmüller RailAssembler, we have already taken the first step towards automated panel building. Terminal blocks with innovative SNAP IN technology are already paving the way towards automated wiring in the near future.
The new Klippon® Connect terminal blocks with Weidmüller‘s revolutionary SNAP IN technology are available in 4 mm² 1-level as well as 2.5 mm² double level.
Weidmüller's latest global innovation is terminal blocks with SNAP IN technology. They allow flexible conductors without wire end ferrules to be wired quickly, easily and without tools.
The conductors are simply inserted into the connection point and the mechanism snaps shut with a clearly audible click. SNAP IN technology guarantees a secure and permanently reliable connection – even for the increasingly automated wiring processes of the future.
In our #TechTalks_WM video series, we focus on our customers' challenges by analysing the causes of these challenges and briefly presenting the Weidmüller solution.
This video tells you about the quick handling of the innovative SNAP IN technology. We'll show you how acoustic, haptic and optical feedback means that you can fully depend on the connection between the conductor and snap-in terminal being secure. Our experts will explain what you need to know about our smart SNAP IN technology and how we're revolutionising panel building.

As a pioneer in industrial connectivity, we have repeatedly made industrial history with our innovations. This began in 1948 with the first plastic-insulated terminal block, which set standards worldwide. With more than 75 years of experience in industrial connectivity and billions of contacted conductors, Weidmüller terminal blocks are among the safest and most powerful on the market.
We're the experts when it comes to panel building. How can we so easily make such a claim? As well as having survived successfully on the market for decades, we've regularly shaped the market as a trendsetter and pioneer, and we continue to do so. In 1948, we revolutionised electrical installation with the world's first plastic terminal block. Today, our innovative SNAP IN technology ensures easy, safe and lasting connections that you can depend on. Find out about milestones when Weidmüller has shaped and driven the industry.
We really value being able to offer you convincing complete solutions. Doing so allows us to ensure the success and safety of your products. For our terminal blocks with innovative SNAP IN technology, too, we offer perfect complements to ensure top efficiency in your company processes.
