Weidmüller's OMNIMATE PGK 4 feedthrough terminal with PUSH IN connection system meets the latest user needs in terms of convenience and cost savings during installation and when connecting conductors.
When space for applications is limited, flexible and space-saving connection systems are needed. If installing devices with a wall or housing feedthrough, Weidmüller's PGK 4 is an impressive solution for quick and simple installation and a secure conductor connection. Weidmüller's innovative PUSH IN connection system provides a conductor connection on the inside and outside of the device which is easy to operate without any tools.
Connection blocks featuring large numbers of poles can be assembled thanks to the sliced construction and user-friendly engagement in a matter of seconds. The PGK 4 feedthrough terminal is currently the most compact and fastest solution for housing feedthroughs. Future-proofed, halogen-free materials and numerous approvals mean that the terminals can be used for even more purposes in new device designs.
There is usually very little space available when installing devices with a wall or housing feedthrough. However, many applications require not just space-saving connection systems but flexible ones too. Weidmüller has developed the new OMNIMATE PGK 4 through-panel terminal with PUSH IN connection system for this very purpose. It is proving to be convenient and cost-effective during installation and when connecting conductors.
The innovative PUSH IN connection system makes for a simple conductor connection on the inside and outside of the device which can be operated without any tools. Thanks to the sliced construction with a slice width of just 5.1 mm, connection blocks featuring a large number of poles can be assembled quickly, simply and without taking up too much space. The PGK 4 feedthrough terminal is currently the most compact and fastest solution for housing feedthroughs available on the market.
The PGK 4's ease of use translates into reduced installation costs. Users can engage the slices with incredible ease and fix the terminal block in the housing cut-out in a matter of seconds. The terminal block engagement mechanism developed by Weidmüller ensures a safe and reliable hold for the device feedthrough and is suited to wall thicknesses of between 1.50 mm and 3.00 mm.
The innovative PUSH IN connection system allows users to quickly and conveniently contact conductors. It also meets the need for permanent and vibration-resistant contacts. Stranded wire conductors with a ferrule (DIN 46228/1) and single-stranded conductors can be directly plugged in on the PGK 4 feedthrough terminals. Conductor connections with a cross-section of up to 4.0 mm² with ferrules are possible. Users can perform a simple function check at any time using the easily accessible diagnostic test points.
The PGK 4 feedthrough terminals can be clearly labelled on the top and bottom such that the terminal unit can always be marked regardless of mounting position. The user can use Weidmüller's "dekafix 5.5" standard marking system to label operating equipment.
The rated data of the PGK 4 feedthrough terminal complies with IEC 60947-7-1: rated voltage of 500 V, rated impulse voltage of 6 kV, rated current of 32 A. The terminals are made from Wemid and classified as flammability rating V-0 according to UL94. The Wemid insulating material permits use up to a continuous usage temperature of 120°C. The innovative Omnimate PGK 4 feedthrough terminal with PUSH IN connection system can be used for a wide range of purposes in new device designs.
Weidmüller 72-hr sample service - a global promise
When designing PCBs and devices, development engineers eventually come to a point where they have to find the right connection components for their application. Weidmüller's sample service makes this a speedy process as Weidmüller will supply samples of its device connection components and electronic housings (including the OMNIMATE PGK 4 feedthrough terminal) to any location within no more than 72 hours..
