Terminal Blocks manufactured by Schlegel are quick-assembly terminals standard for the electrical industry, especially for electrical machine control systems, switch, distribution and measurement units and for elevator and apparatus engineering.
Innovation. Quality. Design. That’s what the name Schlegel stands for. Founded in 1945, a globally operating manufacturer of components for electrical and electronic controls, with headquarters in Germany and distributors in more than 80 countries on all five continents. Our core competences: Development and production of control units, panel mount jacks, RFID, bus systems, enclosures, terminal blocks, pedal switches, limit switches and customized solutions. Our customers particularly appreciate our flexibility and our professional know-how in the development of customized solutions for individual applications.
Made by Schlegel is inseparably linked to the hallmark “Made in Germany”. Schlegel manufactures exclusively in Germany at the locations Dürmentingen and Leipzig. Schlegel distinguishes itself by a very high level of vertical integration. Most processes are performed in-house. This allows highest flexibility, for example, in the implementation of customized products and requirements. The quality policy at Schlegel is rounded off by many years of experience in dealing with the quality management according to ISO 9001-2015.
The terminals are suitable for high and low voltage as well as for DC and AC. The particular advantages of terminal blocks are their short assembly times and their small dimensions.
- Contact bracket compensates for any reduction in contact pressure caused by cold flow of the cable.
- Contact bracket spring exerts an upward force on the screw head to ensure that it does not loosen through vibration.
- Contact system ensures that no matter how small the cross section of the wire, it can only be inserted into the connection hole.
- Heavy gauge of the metal forming the bracket ensures no “tilting” of the bottom plate is possible, whatever the cable size.
- Rolled screws (shown on the left) rather than turned screws are used, enabling high clamping force to be achieved with reduced possibility of thread damage.
- Screw damage to the wire is eliminated by the use of a serrated plate, acted upon by the screw, bearing down on the wire.
