ABB's new housing features two connection options

ABB Low Voltage Products division designed new housing for its CT-S range of time relays and CM range of measuring and monitoring relays. The new housing features two new connection options, Double-Chamber Cage Connection terminals and Push-in terminals. The Double-Cage Connection terminals use screw technology and can be connected with two wires of differing diameters up to 14 AWG, solid or stranded, with or without wire-end ferrules. The Push-in terminals feature spring clamp, Easy Connect technology, which allows the timers and monitors to be wired quickly and easily without any tools. With the Easy Connect option solid or stranded wires with ferrules can be connected without a tool, and stranded wires without ferrules can be connected by simply opening the cage with a screwdriver.
