For particularly time-saving and convenient wiring via push-in connection, CONTA-CLIP offers the FRK series as well as the new PRK series, which is currently one of the most advanced push-in terminal series on the market. The PRK series provides large diversity and particularly easy handling due to enlarged insertion channels, minimized engaging forces and integrated pushers. PRK terminals extremely space-saving due to their tall design with vertical wire insertion from above, which allows installation at a minimum distance to the wiring channels and thus very compact installations. The PRK and FRK push-in series are currently available for conductor cross sections from 0.2 mm² to 25 mm², with feed-through, PE, disconnect, fused multi-tier, installation and initiator terminals. “Our terminal block portfolio for all relevant connection options is designed for broad compatibility, so it meets all technical and individual requirements of our customers,” says Jörg Nowastowski-Stock, Managing Director Sales and Marketing at CONTA-CLIP. “Each connection type offers specific application-related advantages. In addition, our portfolio also takes into account differing preferences from user to user. Thus, we cover all needs, so our customers will find any connection solutions they are looking for.”

Innovative transformer terminals with push-in connection

10 August 2022

CONTA-CLIP expands its range of transformer terminals, adding the innovative PTKS 4 series with push-in connection. Thanks to the tool-free push-in system for connecting rigid wires or wires with end ferrules, the PTKS 4 series simplifies wiring considerably and minimizes the time required. The high contact force of the push-in spring ensures secure fixation of the wire ends even in the event of strong vibrations and mechanical shocks. For convenience, the transformer terminals are terminated from the top, via an integrated pusher that can be operated with light pressure and without any special tools. The terminals are available in 1- or 2-pole versions for 4-mm˛ wire cross sections. 2- or 3-pole insulated plug-in cross connectors allow for easy potential and power distribution between terminals. Due to their two-part structure of basic clamp and cover, PTKS 4 terminals are well suited for automated soldering processes. After soldering the coil wire, the cover can easily be pushed onto the clamp. The transformer terminal covers can be marked using standard SB 7.5 markers from CONTA-CLIP.

Slim GSM retrofit module for SMS fault messaging

26 July 2022

Many waterworks stations and agriculture applications use compact controllers for pump or ventilation systems, which are often installed in hard-to-reach or remote places. Inspection and maintenance is not feasible for these off-grid controllers and therefore can raise considerable personnel costs. For such scenarios, Germany-based connection technology specialist CONTA-CLIP now offers a particularly economical and easy-to-retrofit solution: the GSM-TMM modem converts all messages from the controller's fault output to text messages and automatically sends them to up to five recipients. The GSM-TMM module uses the mobile communications standards LTE-M or NB-IoT, ensuring cost-efficient and energy-saving operation. The compact device in a housing measuring only 40 mm x 65 mm x 110 mm is suitable for all controllers with a live interference output and is ready for use in just a few easy steps. For easy parameterization, the modem is connected via USB to a PC running at least Windows 10. During this process, the GSM-TMM does not require an extra power supply. Once a SIM card has been inserted, the modem and controller fault outputs can be powered via a 230 V AC, 12 V DC or 24 V AC/DC supply connected to the modem’s external screw terminals. The modem features a red/green LED on its front, which, through permanent or flashing lights, indicates operating states, text message dispatch, configuration errors and potential reception problems.
