When I visit Myanmar, customers would often ask me, “Why is it that Phoenix Contact’s Terminal Blocks considered a premium product?”
They will look at me, waiting for an answer, hoping that they did not say anything to offend.
“Aren’t all Terminal Blocks the same?”, after a brief moment of silence.
Well, the answer to this questions is definitely, no. They are not one and the same.
And that was how I sparked their curiosity. “Tell me more”, they said.
A Market Leader since 1923
I would go on and explained that the reason why Phoenix Contact has been the leader in such a simple yet sophisticated product, that today, it is trusted around the world.
So trusted, that projects in Southeast Asia, even big government projects, are using them.
If I have interest you, just like my Myanmar customers, then read on.

Flexible jumper system
The same jumper could be used across our terminal blocks for all connection technologies.
To allow fast and individual potential distribution, the terminal blocks in the CLIPLINE complete system have two function shafts.
These are arranged in one line over all the terminal blocks, allowing for a combination of connection technologies.
Plug-in connection solutions
The COMBI connection system enables the time-saving and modular configuration of your application.
Like the terminal blocks, the COMBI connectors are available with screw, spring-cage, push-in, and fast connection technologies too.
The nominal data of up to 41 A and 1000 V have made a connection system for signal and power wiring possible.
The system meets the most stringent of vibration requirements. Both the terminal blocks and the plugs are touch proof.
Extensive accessories are available, from latching mechanisms to shield connections.
All the terminal points of the terminal blocks in the CLIPLINE complete system have large-surface marking options.
This is a precondition for clear wiring and startup and simplifies assignment during testing and maintenance work.
Optional large-surface snap-on marker carriers are available for group and terminal strip marking.
Standardized test system
A comprehensive range of test accessories is available in the CLIPLINE complete system.
All test plugs make contact in the freely accessible function shaft. For individual measuring lines, a 2.3 mm diameter test plug is available.
More complex testing tasks can be implemented using alignable test plugs.
