Terminal block line

This insulation displacement connection (IDC) terminal block line saves wiring time by eliminating the need to strip the wire insulation before termination. The wire is cut to length, inserted into the terminal block, and terminated with a screwdriver. Some of the wiring options include the feed-through and ground blocks, in as many as four termination versions as large as 14 AWG. The dual-level blocks allow two individual circuits to be terminated in the same panel as a single terminal block. The electronic component blocks, diode, and surge suppressors are used for protecting sensitive electronic circuits.

Pilot lights

These explosion proof pilot lights are equipped with screw terminals for field wiring. The screw terminals are designed to permit the direct attachment of wire leads to the pilot light, providing an alternative to wire nuts and butt splices used with standard pigtail wire leads. When used with crimp style connectors, they provide a tight connection with high pull-out resistance. They accept most common wire gauges.
