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.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
