ELECTRONICS: Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation announced it has stock on Phoenix Contact’s PTSM series PCB terminal blocks.
The PTSM series PCB terminal blocks are available for purchase on Digi-Key’s global websites and are slated to be featured in future print and online catalogs.
The PTSM series has a 5A-rated spring-cage connector and a small footprint that allows for several design possibilities. The terminal blocks are 5mm in height and have a 2.5mm center line. These parts are available in pin-in-paste method mounting or true surface-mount technology, both of which help engineers save time and money when compared to traditional mounting methods.
Features include a quick push-in connection, cost-saving mounting technology, and optimization of tight spaces. The PTSM series’ small size is valuable in applications in which board space is constrained. The quick push-in technology reduces the amount of time spent on inserting wires when compared to traditional technology.
The PTSM series may be used in applications such as LED lighting, building automation, and power supply units.
