Part of a family, the EB4220-xx-x01 mounts in a 15mm pitch and is 35mm deep and 30mm high – 44mm above the PCB is the required clearance for leverage.

“The stainless steel spring clamp system has a patented ergonomic lever design for easy tool-free wiring. The stands are angled for easy cable entry,” according to distributor Omni Pro, which stocks the terminals.

The contacts are copper-matted tin over nickel and for mechanical strength the PCB interface has four pins per contact. Different number of poles up to 12 are available.

6 to 16AWG wires can be handled (strip length is 12 – 13mm) and there is a provision at the back (slot in photo) for a jumper to short adjacent circuits together.

Operation is over -40 to +115°C (soldering 260°C for 5s) and the terminal withstands 2.2kVac (60s test).

White thermoplastic UL94V-0 is used for the lever and the body is polyamide in a choice of eight colors.

A 10mm pitch 55A 300V version is also available, and the EB4120 is a series with the same 65A 600V or 55A 300V options, but without the ability to short adjacent circuits, so it takes up slightly less space front to back.

Applications are envisioned in motor control, industrial switchgear, solar energy, and the marine industry.
