  • Patent number: 9954322
    Abstract: A connection terminal having a terminal housing for securing a terminal block arrangement having a plurality of terminal blocks in a wall opening of a housing wall, and a construction unit having two connection terminals and a terminal block arrangement that are formed of a plurality of adjacently arranged terminal blocks. The connection terminal enables the terminal blocks and/or the terminal block arrangement to be mounted and/or dismounted from one side in a wall opening of a housing wall by displaceably arranging a securing element in the terminal housing, the securing element having a terminal bevel that protrudes through an opening in the terminal housing, and by movably disposing the securing element with the aid of an actuation element into a terminal position in which the terminal bevel acts against an inner edge of the wall opening in the mounted state of the connection terminal.

  • Patent number: 9461373
    Abstract: A terminal clamp is described. The terminal clamp includes a housing, a clamp pocket arranged in the housing into which a conductor to be clamped can be inserted, the clamp pocket having a base wall, and two side walls which are opposite each other, which extend away from the base wall, and which form a conductor guide channel, the conductor guide channel having, at least in regions in the longitudinal direction thereof, a cross-section which continually narrows towards the base wall, and at least one clamping spring protruding into the clamp pocket for clamping the inserted conductor in the clamp pocket.

  • Patent number: 9413085
    Abstract: An electrical connection terminal includes a housing having a conductor insertion opening, a busbar disposed in the housing, and a spring element rotatably mounted in the housing and pivotable into an open position and into a closed position. In the closed position, a conductor inserted into the conductor insertion opening is clampable against the busbar via the spring element. The electrical connection terminal includes an actuating element which is rotatably mounted in the housing. The actuating element includes an actuating arm via which the spring element is configured to actuate so as to be transferred into the open position and into the closed position. The actuating element comprises a clearance adapted to the spring element into which the spring element is pivots during a pivot movement from the closed position into the open position, without triggering a rotational movement of the actuating element.
