Create a Video Showing Terminal Block Strength

The contest challenges participants to create a video demonstrating how strong the Phoenix Contact's push-in terminal blocks are. The creator(s) of the video that receives the most online votes will win an Apple iPad or Android tablet of his or her choice (up to $700 value.)

According to Eric Johnson, product marketing lead specialist for Industrial Connection Technology – Cabinet, Phoenix Contact's push-in terminal blocks reduce push-in force by 50 percent, compared with similar push-in style blocks on the market. "If they're that easy, how strong can the connection be? We want you to test for yourself, and show us the results," said Johnson.

Interested participants can request a sample of Phoenix Contact's PT terminal blocks for use in their video at Each entry may be entered by a team consisting of up to three members. Teams have until October 31, 2012, to upload the video (two minutes or less) to the site.
