The railway electronics manufacturer creates a polarity terminal block to reduce soldering on under-board terminals.
Model railway electronics specialist, Brimal Components has created a 14-way single polarity connector, mounted on a circuit board. The new unit is designed to join wires together of the same polarity, without soldering. The small terminal block measures 45 x 28mm and features 14 screw terminals all connected on the underside of the PCB. Pre-drilled holes mean that the circuit board can be screwed to the underside of a board to keep wiring neat, or even located inside a building if adding lights.
Brimal Components commented, "The unit is ideal for localised common Negative or Positive terminals and can be placed where wires need to be joined together."
Many customers are said to be using the 14-way connectors as sector power feeds, adjacent to control panels and for common returns on DC analogue layouts.
