Phoenix Contact: XTV Terminal Blocks With Push-X Connection Technology

August 11, 2022

The new XTV terminal blocks can accommodate the direct insertion of all conductor types: ferruled, solid, or stranded wires. The XTV series is the first product family to feature Push-X connection technology from Phoenix Contact.

Push-X operates similarly to Phoenix Contact’s popular Push-in Technology (PT) but uses a preloaded mousetrap design that keeps the leg spring depressed. As a result, the technician only needs to apply enough force to unlatch the spring and directly insert any type of wire. In traditional PT, the technician completely depresses the spring, so it cannot accept stranded wires.

Tapping the inserted conductor triggers the preloaded contact spring and automatically establishes safe contact. This reduces installation times and enables faster wiring without tools or force. To release the conductor, the technician presses the orange push button, the same method used in Push-in Technology. The push button always displays the chamber position clearly, regardless of the conductor diameter and orientation of the terminal block.

The initial XTV product range includes three cross-sections: 6, 10, and 16 mm². Push-X technology has been tested beyond the standard requirements, making it suitable for industries that place high requirements on vibrations, gas tightness, and robustness. The XTV family is fully compatible with the CLIPLINE complete terminal block system, making it easy to combine with other Phoenix Contact terminal blocks and accessories.
