Conta-Clip has expanded its range of screw-type distributor blocks by adding the new SVBA and SVBKA types for energy distribution in control cabinets. Both series are suited for copper leads as well as for aluminum conductors. Featuring an extremely compact design, these units facilitate potential or power distribution without the need for additional accessories.
SVBA blocks are sized for small wire cross sections of 1.5 to 500 mm². They connect an incoming conductor with a large cross-section with up to six conductors with smaller cross-sections.
SVBA blocks are available in five versions for currents between 85 and 415 A, as well as in a special 1100 A version with three terminal connections. They feature rated voltages of 1,000 Vac and up to 1500 Vdc.
All models except for the special high-current version are easy to mount by snapping them together with a plastic connecting clip. Colored marking columns for N, PE and phase allow users to code and re-code the SVBA blocks as needed. A built-in label on the block additionally shows the connected phase. SVBA blocks
with up to 380 A for the North American market are UL-certified.
In contrast, all models of the SVBKA screw-type distributor series feature just two connections and facilitate quick and easy contacting of two conductors with cross-sections ranging from 1.5 to 240 mm² for currents up to 425 A and voltages of 1,000 V. For smaller conductor cross-sections, touch safety is ensured with optional covers. SVBKA blocks provide a major advantage compared to conventional terminal blocks due to their significantly slimmer and therefore space-saving design. Both SVBA and SVBKA series blocks can be mounted by simply snapping them onto a TS35 DIN rail. They can also be fixed directly to a mounting plate via a screw flange on the side. Both series ensure IP20 ingress protection for all wire cross-sections.
