Phoenix Contact’s newest PCB terminal blocks and plug connectors/headers from the company’s Combicon power line are appropriate for increased voltage in power applications. The GMSTB(A) 2.5 HC(V), a high-voltage header and plug with screw connection for wire-to-board applications, features a space-saving 7.62 mm pitch and voltage ratings (1,000 V IEC, 600 V UL). The enlarged wire and entry funnels provide bigger clearance and creepage distances. Integrated double-steel covering springs offer maximum contact safely, even at high power, severe temperature fluctuations and within high-vibration environments. The MKDS 5 HV, a high-voltage, fixed printed circuit mount terminal block for power applications, is designed to enable discrete wiring termination with a rising cage screw clamp on small 6.35 mm spacing. It has 1 through 12 positions and a dovetail feature to create larger position sizes as needed. Front or back pinning options are offered. Enlarged screw entry funnels simplify wiring. www.phoenixcon.com Phoenix Contact
