Terminal Block Video Series

With new tools at your disposal to optimize the integration of terminal blocks, a TE technical expert will talk through 7 key phases of boosting design productivity and reliability through a monthly video series.

The design of electrical panels requires the technical expertise and experience of panel builders servicing an increasingly demanding and complex market and nowadays, panel builders are met with challenges such as smaller machines, energy consumption, and increased productivity. This video series conducted by an TE Connectivity ENTRELEC terminal block technical expert offers electrical panel designers a detailed analysis, including seven key points covering the principal factors for boosting an installation's productivity and reliability when integrating terminal blocks into designs.

Video 1: Introduction (English)

This series of videos offers electrical panel designers new solutions and tools to optimize the panel design process through a detailed analysis of 7 key steps in the process of manufacturing panels specifically in terms of integrating terminal blocks.

We’ll talk about planning, termination technologies, installation techniques, marking, testing and maintenance, power distribution, and grounding. Each month one of the 7 milestone will be featured and through examples demos and 3D animations we will show you all what you can do to optimize your productivity when integrating terminal blocks in electrical panel.

Video 2: The Study, Design and Layout phase (English)

This video speaks about the Study, Design and Layout phase a crucial step in ensuring a successful project. This phase must take into account both the physical requirement and electrical requirements. It is usually handled by electrical engineers and technicians that need to select the best components adapted to the requirement of the project.

Powerful tools are now available to help select and implement products, in particular terminal blocks. We will give you 4 examples of solutions and tools that you can use to gain efficiency & speed at that stage:

1. Dedicated terminal block assembly CAD design software.

2. Use of pre-assembled and pre-marked terminal block assemblies.

3. CAD download platforms.

4. Gateway between electrical CAD software’s and dedicated terminal block CAD software’s.

Video 3: The Installation Phase (English)

This video speaks about the terminal blocks installation phase which is critical in terms of saving time, as delays can cause project costs to rise sharply. 

In this video you will learn more about how the detailed design of TE’s ENTRELEC terminal blocks have a significant impact on operations.

Through various application examples we will see how we can streamline the installation of terminal blocks within the electrical panel when using single terminal blocks installation or pre-assembled terminal blocks.

Video 4: The Installation of accessories (English)

Today’s video is the continuation of previous video where we will deep dive in the installation process with a focus on the installation of accessories. This operation can be even more time consuming than terminal blocks installation if user is not aware of new functions and design available today to help in the installation. In this video you will learn through some essential accessories such as jumpers, end stops, end sections, and how to take advantage of clever design to gain in efficiency during the installation phase.
