Safety, Protection, and Reliable Disconnection of Electrical Circuits

Weidmuller 3/26/2018

Current protection, disconnection, and voltage distribution are three critical functions inside a panel. To provide optimal protection for staff and machinery, any customisable connection solutions must combine all three aspects within a single system.

The new Weidmuller Klippon Connect disconnect and fuse terminal blocks with PUSH IN technology offer passive current protection in combination with both disconnection and voltage distribution. The terminal blocks from our universal range can be used easily for various protective functions in an extremely wide range of industrial applications. Their compact dimensions enable a flexible installation, even in confined spaces. To remove the fuse holder only a standard screwdriver is required.
