OKW Electronics has launched two new ranges of 5.0mm and 5.08mm pitch pluggable PCB terminal blocks from Camden Electronics. These UL, cUL, CE, VDE and IMQ approved terminal blocks include space saving double level versions for maximum design versatility.

Pluggable PCB terminal blocks, 5.0mm and 5.08mm pitches

Versatile products call for versatile components – our double level PCB terminal blocks in particular will help designers to save vital space on the PCB, reducing product size and cutting costs.

OKW Electronics has launched two new ranges of 5.0mm and 5.08mm pitch pluggable PCB terminal blocks from Camden Electronics.

These UL, cUL, CE, VDE and IMQ approved terminal blocks include space saving double level versions for maximum design versatility.

Both the single and the double level variants of the 5.0mm pitch pluggable PCB terminal blocks and 5.08mm pitch pluggable PCB terminal blocks are molded in green UL94 V-0 flame retardant PA66 plastic.

They consist of individual blocks or a series of interlocking blocks which make up the number of poles. Their rising clamp wire connections come with captured fixing screws and guided pin alignment.

Both the single and double level PCB connectors can be ordered as separate male and female connectors. These two connectors can be mounted either vertically or at 90 degrees to suit different applications.

Features and benefits common to both single and double level PCB terminal blocks include:

  •     female connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree cable entry
  •     male connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree PCB pins
  •     insulation resistance of 5M Ohms
  •     working temperature range of -20 degrees C to +125 degrees C.

The new 5.0mm and 5.08mm single level rising clamp PCB terminal blocks are part of the extensive CTB93xx range that also includes 3.5mm, 3.81mm, 7.5mm and 7.62mm pitches.

CTB93xx PCB terminal blocks features, benefits and specifications:

  •     molded in green UL94 V-0 flame retardant PA66 plastic
  •     available in pitches of 3.5mm, 3.81mm, 5.0mm, 5.08mm, 7.5mm and 7.62mm
  •     supplied in lengths of 1 pole up to a maximum of 24 poles, depending upon the pitch size
  •     connectors consist of individual terminal blocks or a series of interlocking blocks which make up the number of poles
  •     female connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree cable entry
  •     male connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree PCB pins, and can also be specified with open or closed ends
  •     high quality rising clamp wire connections with captured fixing screws and guided pin alignment
  •     blocks can also be specified with open or closed ends
  •     cable entry from 17 AWG to 14 AWG
  •     ratings from 9A/130V to 12A/750V
  •     dielectric strength from 1.25kV/60s to 3kV/60s.

Terminal block manufacturer Camden has also introduced orange polarizing clips for the 5.0mm, 5.08mm, 7.5mm and 7.62mm pitch female and closed end male connectors.

These simple-to-use clips provide a foolproof method of ensuring that only correctly polarized connectors can be inserted into a pluggable terminal block.

The new CTBDD93 series of space saving double level PCB terminal blocks is available in two standard pitches of 5.0mm and 5.08mm.

The double level design of the male connector reduces the required space on the PCB by a half, helping designers to make best use of available space in product enclosures.

Features, benefits and technical data for the CTBDD93 PCB wire terminal block include:

  •     available in two standard pitches of 5.0mm and 5.08mm
  •     can be ordered as separate male and female connectors
  •     female connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree cable entry
  •     male connectors are available with vertical or 90 degree PCB pins
  •     double level design of the male connector reduces the required space on the PCB by a half
  •     molded in green UL94 V-0 flame retardant PA66 plastic
  •     supplied in sizes of 4 poles up to a maximum of 24 poles
  •     14 AWG wire entry, captured fixing screws and guided pin alignment
  •     rating 12A/380V
  •     dielectric strength 2.5kV/60s
  •     insulation resistance 5M Ohms
  •     working temperature range -20 degrees C to +125 degrees C.
