RJ45 contact inserts for heavy-duty connectors

For the safe, compact integration of RJ45 data cables into heavy-duty applications, Phoenix Contact offers suitable contact inserts.

The new RJ45 adapter and gender changer enable data transmission in the space-saving D7 housing. In tight spaces, data of up to 10 Gbps can be reliably transmitted using Profinet, Industrial Ethernet, or EtherCAT.

Tool-free cabling with RJI connection. The compact, robust connector housings in the Heavycon Standard series are available in metal and plastic. They feature a high degree of protection: IP66/IP67. The metal housings are made from corrosion-resistant die-cast aluminium and are also EMC-ready. In combination with an EMC cable gland, they reliably discharge electromagnetic disturbance.

High-current terminal blocks with Power-Turn connection

 PT Power 185 terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact

Conductor cross sections of up to 185 mm² are quick and simple to wire using the PT Power 185 terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact:

the patented Power-Turn spring connection technology enables large conductors to be connected conveniently with just a standard screwdriver and a single lever movement.

Alternatively, conductors can even be inserted directly when the lever is closed by means of the Push-in method. Optional snap-on terminal blocks enable easy voltage pick-off. The high-current terminal blocks are available in DIN rail or direct mounting variants for flexible installation. Preassembled terminal blocks lower the mounting costs, while the use of standardised Clipline complete system accessories reduces the logistics costs.

Narrow protection for 3-conductor applications

Narrow surge protection for MCR technology


Phoenix Contact is adding a customized solution for impedance-sensitive signal circuits with more than two signal wires to its Termitrab complete range of narrow surge protective devices for MCR technology.

This means that narrow protective devices for 3-conductor applications with an overall width of 6 mm are available with immediate effect. These products fit seamlessly into the TERMITRAB complete product range, and also feature advantages such as the pluggable design and the advantages of optional visual remote signalling.

There is also a new, pluggable solution for intrinsically safe areas: the new TTC-6P-3 surge protective devices have a much higher rated current, at 5 A, than the HF variants. The new protective devices for 3-conductor applications are typically used in temperature measurements, for example. The lack of resistors in the protective circuit means there is no fundamental attenuation. There is no impact on the measuring signals.

NEW Alcohol-Free Reztore® from Desco

Antistatic Surface & Mat Cleaner

  • NEW alcohol-free formula
  • Excessive use of alcohol-based cleaners may dry-out mats (vinyl or rubber) and degrade performance
  • Non-hazardous, non-flammable green chemistry formula

    No special handling requirements for shipping and storage; may be used in normal workplace environments

  • No silicone or insulative residues

    Cleaners with silicone leave an insulative layer preventing conductive or dissipative mats from functioning properly
