Available from specialist distributor Switchtec, Euroclamp’s SVR-DR terminal blocks are – somewhat uniquely – DIN mountable, meeting the needs of many panel builders and OEMs. The terminal blocks enable quick, ‘plug-in’ connections to be made that are simultaneously solid and vibration free, mounted on DIN rail. Whilst there are many manufacturers of plug in terminal blocks, most are not DIN mountable, alternatively they are DIN rail mount mountable, but not plug in.
Accordingly, Euroclamp’s ‘vertical reversed’ SVR-DR has found a niche market in electronic housings and enclosure equipment manufacturers who required a wire-to-wire connection via a DIN rail mounted terminal block.
Offering compatibility and familiarity, the SVR-DR is designed to be plugged into Euroclamp’s SF plug in connector. The SF has an inverted mounting system that has male contacts thus allowing the SF to connect directly and easily to the SVR-SR, providing the wire-to-wire connection. The SVR-DR can also be plugged into Euroclamp’s PV PCB connector if a PCB connection is needed. An EN60335 (glow wire) version also available.
SVR-DR’s DIN foot can be fitted to DIN rail of the following sizes, 35 x 7.5mm, 35 x 15mm and onto DIN 32 and DIN 15 rail. The terminal block is available in sizes from 2 to 24 poles and will accept 4sq mm solid and 2.5sq mm stranded wire.
With its detachable foot element for mounting onto DIN rail, Euroclamp’s SVR-DR sits alongside two sister SVR models, the standard flangeless model for surface mounting, and a model that has a flange at each end for surface mounting with screws.
The SVR series is CE marked, cULus approved and is fully RoHS compliant. CSA and VDE approvals are pending.
For safety, and unlike some other versions available on the market, the SVR-DR’s plug in connectors’ metal contacts are set back into the plastic body of the terminal block. This completely insulates the connector from the metal DIN rail onto which it is mounted.
The SVR is available as standard in green, but as with all Euroclamp’s terminal blocks they are also available in red, yellow, blue, orange and black. Other, special colours are available upon request.
The SVR connector is an important ‘enabling product’ in the Euroclamp connector range, and whilst its application is mainly for use inside electronic housings and enclosures for several key industrial areas, it can also be adapted for use in building automation housings.
