Phoenix Contact High-Density Inserts with Push-In Technology for HEAVYCON

Phoenix Contact’s Push-in Technology (PT) has been an incredible advancement for wire terminations. This technology allows people to be significantly more productive and consistent with those terminations. While HEAVYCON has had Push-in terminations for some time, density has been a limiting factor. Crimp terminations are a time-honored method of achieving higher density within a connector, but now, that supremacy is being challenged. As Phoenix Contact continues to advance its Push-in Technology, actuators are becoming smaller while still being robust enough for use in industrial applications. Given that, the HEAVYCON line now has several new contact inserts that take advantage of …
