Specialist distributors JPR Electronics offers a wide range of quick-release terminals manufactured by market leading connector manufacturer Schützinger. Since the launch of their first quick-release terminal an entire product family has emerged and successfully established itself in the market. Quick-release terminals provide the ideal connection in any situation where a safe and rapid connection must be created quickly between a conductor or cable and another device.
Typical applications for quick release terminals include instrumentation, burn-in, test and repair bays or any test applications in which cables, conductors or electrical devices need to undergo functional testing.
Wires are connected to the terminals by pressing on the head of the terminal post and inserting them between the connection jaws where the strong internal compression spring guarantees good contact. Versions are available with 2 apertures as well as shock-proof versions for applications operating above protective low voltage levels. Quick release Kelvin four-wire terminals are also available allowing measurements to be made without errors caused by transition resistance of the measuring leads and any thermovoltages.
Schützinger quick release terminals are rated from 5A to 16A can accommodate panel thicknesses from 0.8 to 7mm and are available with options of termination safety shield and 4mm plug connection for converting existing terminals to quick release. Standard colours are blue, green, yellow, grey, brown, white, purple and green-yellow.
Paul Raynor, Director of JPR Electronics, comments, “Schützinger quick release terminals are particularly suitable for quick connection and testing of electronic products and electrical appliances as they come off the end of production lines. They can be used for both functional testing and burn-in if required.”
In addition to the wide range of standard quick release terminals JPR can supply customised Schützinger products. Custom options include reduction of the spring force for frequent use with low electrical load, increased spring force for higher electrical loads, additional colours and colour combinations for casing and button, customised connection types and alternative typeface or customer logo.
Other Schützinger products available from JPR include a wide range of 2mm and 4mm terminal posts, safety sockets and plugs including stackable variants, standard and safety crocodile clips, packaged 2mm and 4mm test lead sets and a comprehensive multimeter test lead and probe kit.
