What is Terminal Block?
Terminal block is a kind of accessory product used to realize electrical connection. The simple structure of the terminal block can play an extremely important connection role, the cost is low, and it is the best assistant for signal transmission.
What is terminal block?
The terminal is a bridge of communication between the blocked or isolated circuits in the circuit, so that the current flows and the circuit achieves the predetermined function. Looking down the path of current flow, you will always find one or more terminals. The form and structure of this kind of product are ever-changing, with different application objects, frequency, power, application environment, etc., there are various forms of connectors. But no matter what kind of terminal block, it is necessary to ensure that the current flows smoothly, continuously and reliably.
Features of terminal block
- Improve the production process: Terminal block connectors simplify the assembly process of electronic products. It also simplifies the mass production process;
- Easy to maintain: If an electronic component fails, the failed component can be quickly replaced when the connector is installed;
- Easy to upgrade: With the advancement of technology, the components can be updated when the connectors are installed, and the old ones can be replaced with new and better components;
- Improve design flexibility: Using terminal block connectors gives engineers greater flexibility when designing and integrating new products and when building systems from components.
How does the terminal block work?
The terminal is used to facilitate the connection of wires. It is actually a piece of metal enclosed in insulating plastic. There are holes at both ends to insert wires. There are screws for fastening or loosening, such as two wires, sometimes Need to connect, sometimes need to disconnect, then you can use the terminal to connect them, and can be disconnected at any time, without having to solder or twist them together, very convenient and fast. And it is suitable for a large number of wire interconnections. In the power industry, there are special terminal blocks and terminal boxes, all of which are terminal blocks, single-layer, double-layer, current, voltage, common, breakable and so on. A certain crimping area is to ensure reliable contact and to ensure that enough current can pass.
