For Immediate Release
Mt. Prospect, IL – June 29, 2016 - E-T-A Circuit Breakers is pleased to announce the availability of two new connectors for its well-known 3120 circuit breaker product series - making E-T-A the first circuit breaker manufacturer to offer customers a circuit breaker/switch combination with push-in terminal (3120-PT) or plug-in (Y31214001) wire termination options when installing circuit protection into their designs.
Both connectors provide users with tool-free installation and faster equipment wiring which reduces the installation time and production cost. The plug-in option also offers customers additional flexibility within their designs by allowing them to pre-wire the connector into a wire harness and also quickly replace a circuit breaker with minimal disruption to the harness assembly.
Push-in Terminal Connector:
The push-in terminal connector (3120-PT) is sold as a single component with the appropriate 3120 configurations. It is designed for solid wire or wire ferrules, on stranded wire, for correct connection. When the wire is pushed in, the contact spring opens automatically and provides the required force for a secure connection – 100% protected against brush contact. In the event the circuit breaker needs to be replaced, the wires are easily released with a standard screw driver.
Two retaining clips ensure a tight connection between the plug-in connector harness (Y31214001) and the 3120 circuit breaker. The connector accommodates many 0.250 quick connects available on the market today including: Stocko RSB 7916 F6,3-1, Klaucke Type 2730, Vogt Type 3832d.67, TE FASTON Terminals 250 Series and Delphi Packard 58 Series.
The plug-in and push-in terminal connectors are available directly from E-T-A or through its authorized distributor network. For more information on the plug-in and push-in terminal connectors or the 3120 circuit breaker, call E-T-A at 1-800-462-9979 or click here.
