Change from screw terminals to push-in terminals

Push-in terminals

Bihl+Wiedemann currently fits all their IP20 modules in plastic housings with screw terminals. Since push-in terminals offer significant wiring advantages, we have decided to change all these articles from screw terminals to push-in terminals. All IP20 modules will come with push-in terminals in the future. The article numbers and prices will remain the same. No changes are necessary when placing new orders.

 

The conversion to push-in terminals will begin in April 2017 and be completed after approximately 6 months. The conversion will take place by article. Shipments of the affected modules will be by article and not mixed during this period. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Advantages of switching from screw terminals to push-in terminals

  • Faster and easier installation, saves time
  • More secure
