Courtesy: ABBThe ABB Low Voltage Products division has designed a new housing for its CT-S range of time relays and CM range of measuring and monitoring relays. The housing features two new innovative connection options, Double-Chamber Cage Connection terminals and Push-in terminals.

The Double-Cage Connection terminals utilize screw technology and can be connected with two wires of differing diameters up to 14 AWG, solid or stranded, with or without wire-end ferrules. The Push-in terminals feature spring clamp, Easy Connect technology, which allows the timers and monitors to be wired quickly and easily without any tools. With the Easy Connect option solid or stranded wires with ferrules can be connected without a tool, and stranded wires without ferrules can be connected by simply opening the cage with a screwdriver. The Push-in terminals are suitable for solid or stranded wires up to 20 - 16 AWG. The previously available ABB timer and monitor housing came only with a single cage clamp that required a tool for wire connection.
