Bespoke terminal blocks

Bespoke terminal blocks

By combining high quality PCB terminal blocks with value-added capabilities and services, Phoenix Contact is able to develop solutions that provide the following advantages:

  • Decreased wiring errors
  • Reduced production time
  • Simplified bills of materials
  • Eliminate connector mis-mating

Marking

Marking for custom terminal blocks improves recognition of wiring points. This leads to decreased assembly time and fewer wiring errors. Convenient marking options include:

  • Black and white pad printing
  • Multi-colour pad printing
  • Inkjet printing
  • Custom labelling

Pre-assembly

For ease of configuration, many Phoenix Contact PCB terminal blocks are modular by design. Traditionally, this calls for stocking multiple part numbers and for production teams to assemble multiple parts. Phoenix Contact’s pre-assembly services can produce your configuration under one part number, saving time and money.

Colour coding

Colour coding reduces wiring errors and minimizes installation times. The key advantage of this service is quickly matching a coloured wire to the appropriate connection point.

Keying

Keying is vital when identical connectors are required on the same PCB. Phoenix Contact’s keying products ensure that the appropriate connectors only mate in the desired location. To save production time, we install the keys per your configuration on both sides of the connections.

Partial assembly

Phoenix Contact can provide terminal blocks with metal bodies removed from desired locations. The advantages of partially populated connectors include:

  • Potentially higher voltage ratings based on pin spacing
  • Remove metal bodies for non-connection points
  • Testing configurations

Do you need any of these customised connection solutions? Phoenix Contact provides a wide variety of customer-specific modifications, whether a version for serial production or a completely new product development.
