Direct wiring for all conductors

Jan. 30, 2023

XTV terminal blocks can accommodate direct insertion of all conductor types, such as ferruled, solid or stranded wires. They’re the first products to feature Phoenix Contact’s Push-X connection technology, which is similar to its Push-in Technology (PT), but uses a preloaded mousetrap design that keeps the leg spring depressed. This means users only needs to apply enough force to unlatch the spring and directly insert any type of wire. With PT, users completely depress the spring, so it can’t accept stranded wires.

With Push-X, tapping the inserted conductor triggers the preloaded contact spring and automatically establishes safe contact. This reduces installation times and enables faster wiring without tools or force. To release the conductor, the user presses the orange pushbutton, which is the same with PT. The pushbutton always displays the chamber position clearly, regardless of the conductor diameter and orientation of the terminal block.

XTV presently includes three cross-sections: 6, 10 and 16 mm². Push-X has been tested beyond the standard requirements, making it suitable for settings with high vibrations, gas tightness and/or robustness. XTV is also compatible with Clipline complete terminal blocks, making it easy to combine with other Phoenix Contact terminal blocks and accessories.
