Barrier Strips

Power connects and disconnects

Barrier strips are designed for power applications and incorporate a flip-open clear safety cover. Barriers contain stray or frayed wire ends to prevent electrical shorts between positions on the same block as well as adjacent components.

Barrier Strips is an interconnect which consists of a metal strip, and connectors or screws, that allows for termination and connection of wires. Barrier strip style terminal blocks are available in three main categories: Dual Barrier, Tri-Barrier, and Double Row. Each category of barrier strip is offered in several industry standard centerline spacings, allowing you to choose from high density to high current applications. Dual Barriers and Tri-Barriers are very similar in that they are both offered with hardware which allows them to be used in either PCB or panel mount applications.
