Professional interconnect distributor Heilind is now stocking spring clamp terminal blocks with compression-mount contacts for PCB connection without header from Metz Connect, a German company stands for high quality in the area of contact technology and with connection elements in the electrical engineering and electronics sectors.

Nowadays Devices become ever smaller and lower. Consequently the available space on the PC board becomes more and more limited – and the requirements to connection technology rise. Especially the permanently growing and more and more diversified market of building automation is setting complex requirements as to PC board connection technology of automation components: the focus lies on integration,migration, miniaturization and reliability. METZ CONNECT provides perfect solutions for innovative PC board connection to meet these requirements.

Due to the ideal use of available space, the new spring clamp terminal blocks with compression-mount contacts by METZCONNECT are excellently suitable for compact, sandwich-type wall- or flush-mounted devices.

The contact system integrated into the terminal block make sheaders unnecessary, since the contact is made directly ona PC board pad, which means cost benefits due to saving components. Less components means also to reduce process costs such as storage, assembly, handling, etc. No through-contacts and PC board drillings are necessary – as a result,the opposite side of the PC board offers additional space for electronic components. This allows the packing density of the PC board to be increased.

The handling of spring clamp terminal blocks with compression-mount contacts is easy: to establish contact it is sufficient to assemble the two housing parts.

The spring clamp terminal blocks with compression-mount contacts are also available in solderable versions for board-to-board applications.And the main benefits include connection convenience through push-in technology, no second component necessary, allowance for flatter design of the devices and high retention force of the conductor even under vibrations.
