Direct mount terminal blocks are a low cost alternative to modular terminal blocks.
Direct mount terminal blocks do NOT require the use of a DIN-rail to mount. By utilizing two mounting screws, they can be mounted to any backplane. They are supplied with or without wire protectors and can easily be cut to length with ordinary hand tools. Wire protectors are metallic strips that physically isolate the conductor from the terminal screw. The wire protectors prevent softer conductors from being cut or nicked.
General features include:
12 pole, without wire protector in 10 AWG, 14 AWG and 16 AWG models
