Weidmuller's hybrid dual-level terminal block provides two separate channels to support insulation displacement connection (IDC) and screw clamp termination technologies in one compact footprint.

Offering the best of both worlds, the IDK 1.5N/ZB hybrid terminal block supports the timesaving IDC to reduce production labor, and the screw clamp connection that's used more commonly in field terminations.

With a wire size range of 24 AWG to 16 AWG for the IDC termination, and 26 AWG to 12 AWG for the screw clamp termination, the IDK 1.5N/ZB hybrid terminal is suitable for a wide range of industrial and control applications. It is UL rated at 600V, 10A, with wire gauges from 22 AWG to 16 AWG. The overall dimensions measure 5.1(W)-by-95.3(L)-by-52.8(H)mm.

The hybrid dual-level terminal also provides contact safety and reliability features. The externally-tensioned IDC termination technology and yellow wire guide offer visual indication of a correctly terminated conductor. In addition, wiring times are reduced by as much as 76 percent, when compared to screw clamp technology, because there is no need to strip or crimp wires before insertion.

Available now, the IDK 1.5N/ZB hybrid terminal block is priced at $2.60.
