Automation Systems Interconnect Inc.'s EZ Jump Terminal Blocks are a new line of DIN
rail mounted IEC terminal blocks that are rated at 1000V dc for PV applications.
The EZ Jump terminal blocks have a plug in circuit jumper. The PTC jumper
system is a comb of plug in jumpers that can be cut to any number of circuits
by the user and it can be modified to allow for alternate circuit jumpers.†
The EZ Jump terminal blocks are now available with wire
handling capacity of 20 AWG up to a 1 AWG and current ratings up to 125A. The
EZ Jump family of terminal blocks includes single level, multiple level,
functional, fuse and numerous other styles of terminal blocks to make a
complete selection for the customer. Housings are molded of a UL94V0 polyamide
and all materials are RoHs compliant.
Each of the terminal blocks feature 2 locations for the PTC
jumpers. Once the jumper is installed it is insulated and touch proof by being
fully seated into the EZ Jump terminal block housing. The jumpers can then be
removed with the use of a screwdriver for leverage inserted into the jumper
slot and an insulator strip can be added over the jumper to provide visual
identification of circuits with the PTC jumper installed.
The EZ Jump terminal blocks and PTC Easy Bridge System can
be ordered as individual items and assembled by the customer or they can be
ordered as a complete assembly from ASI. Approvals for the CBC terminal blocks
include UL, cUL, ATEX and KEMA.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
