CONTA-CLIP HSKG High-Power Stud Terminals

By News Release | October 13, 2014

CONTA-CLIP HSKG high-power stud terminals for small cable diameters ensure secure connections for all energy-transmitting applications.

CONTA-CLIPCONTA-CLIP HSKG High Power Stud Terminals’s HSKG line of stud terminals ensures secure connections for all energy-transmitting applications. The new HSKG 35 and HSKG 70 terminals connect cables with small rated cross-sections of 35 or 70mm².

HSKG terminals can be installed as required on standard TS 35 DIN rails in accordance with EN 60715. They are suited for rated currents from 125A to 520A at rated voltages up to 1,000V. Depending on the wire cross-section, the terminals are equipped with M6, M8, M10, M12, or M16 threaded studs. The wire connection range of the HSKG series extends up to 300mm².

Wires are applied to threaded bolts with crimped cable lugs and then connected securely to the busbar by tightening the hex nut. Two cable lugs can be connected per stud. High contact strength, vibration resistance, and freedom from maintenance are ensured by the safety/spring washers and combi-nuts; subsequent tightening of the nut is not required. Optimal security is ensured by the low voltage drop and by the use of self-extinguishing material with a V0 (UL94) flammability rating.

Potential distribution is possible by means of cross-connection rails available as two- or three-pole versions. Additionally, CONTA-CLIP provides accessories that facilitate installation and increase safety. Combined with the ADH hinged covers, the HSKG stud terminals provide outstanding touch protection. The ADH cover is easy to mount – it simply snaps into the side walls of the stud terminals as it is closed. The ES 35/K/ST end-stops grip both sides of the DIN rail with steel clamps, providing steady support for the terminal block construction. For optimal equipment identification, the stud terminals feature a labeling surface for the CONTA-CLIP Pocket-Maxicard PMC marking system.
