An innovation created by Phoenix Contact
Easy and effortless wiring of flexible and rigid conductors with and without ferrules
A new concept in tool-free conductor connection. Push-X can accommodate all types of conductors with direct wiring tool-free and without significant force. A pretensioned contact spring lies at the heart of this new technology. This principle enables the connection of rigid and flexible conductors with or without ferrules. Even the smallest flexible conductors trigger the connection.
Contact the conductor effortlessly by lightly tapping the release surface at the end of the clamping chamber. The mechanism is released by tapping and the conductor is contacted quickly and permanently. As with Push-in technology, connected conductors can be released by pressing the orange push button. At the same time the conductor is released, the contact spring is preloaded for a new wiring operation.
Advantages of Push-X Technology
- Maximum ease of use with effortless and tool-free direct-connection technology and reduced assembly times with to the factory-opened clamping space
- Fast installation of all conductor types with and without ferrules – perhaps the fastest connection technology for flexible conductors
- Clear identification of the conductor connection with the force-guided push button element and the acoustic click sound when the spring is released
- Quick and easy conductor release as well as pre-tensioning of the contact spring, enabled by the force-guided push button element
- Plug-in compatibility with existing systems
Terminal Blocks with Push-X Technology
XT Series Terminal Blocks with Push-X Technology
The XT terminal blocks are the first terminal blocks with a front Push-X connection. The front conductor connection enables easy and clearly arranged wiring for the user. The XT terminal blocks are initially available with a nominal cross-section of 2.5 mm². The portfolio consists of feed-through, multi-conductor, and multi-level terminal blocks, plus knife-disconnect terminal blocks and basic disconnect terminal blocks. Because the terminal blocks are part of the CLIPLINE complete terminal block system, the basic disconnect terminal blocks can be assembled with various functional connectors such as fuses, components, and disconnect knives.
PCB Connectors with Push-X Technology
XTV Series Terminal Blocks with Push-X Technology
The XTV terminal blocks are available in nominal cross-sections of 6, 10 and 16 mm², allowing conductor cross-sections between 1.5 and 25 mm² to be wired with ease. Given the large conductor cross-sections, a lateral connection was selected for the XTV terminal blocks (V = vertical). This has to do with the bending radii that occur during the wiring process. Because the larger conductor cross-sections, such as 16 mm² conductors, are more difficult to bend, the side connection makes wiring easier. In addition, the XTV modular terminal blocks complement the portfolio of lateral spring-connection terminal blocks. This enables Phoenix Contact to provide continuous lateral spring connections for conductor cross-sections between 0.14 (PTV) and 185 mm² (PTPOWER).
