Rockwell Automation introduced a family of terminal blocks. The Allen-Bradley Bulletin 1492-P series push-in terminal blocks offer connections for wiring environments.
The vibration-proof terminal blocks feature a clamp to secure loose wiring and achieve a safe connection point. The front facing terminals provide a sight line and access for wiring.
The plastic actuator feature mitigates potential shock hazards with a finger-safe design, which eliminates access to live metal components. Thecontrol power distribution and signal/sensor application-specific terminal blocks offer color-coded plastic actuators, which provide the customer visual indicators for proper wiring inside the electrical panel. Every 1492-P series push-in terminal block offers a built-in test port, which allows users to monitor meter voltage and current. With many factories operating at different power levels throughout the plant, the test point verifies that each terminal is operating with the appropriate voltage, mitigating the need to manually insert probes.
The push-in terminal blocks can also be used with wiring ferrules to further improve efficiency and quality of connection. In addition, twin-ferrule options are available for using two wires per connection. The Bulletin 1492-P series has been tested and approved for use with Panduit ferrules, a Strategic Alliance Partner within the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program. A ferrule selection guide is available to identify the recommended ferrule for the selected wire size and 1492-P push in terminal block.
