New OMRON terminal blocks improve assembly efficiency

Hoofddorp, Netherlands, 9 March, 2021 – OMRON Electronic Components Europe has launched a new range of Push-In Terminal Block PCB Connectors to significantly improve the efficiency of connector insertion and removal and cable wiring during assembly. These products will be invaluable to factory automation applications, such as robot controllers, AC servo drivers and CNC machines.

The new OMRON XW4M and XW4N have a very low board profile, reducing the space required for the components in designs. The connectors achieve a very low insertion and extraction force whiled1222om - OMRON's new range of Push-In Terminal Block PCB Connectors retaining high quality contact reliability. They are available as a double-row or single-row socket or plug.

Commenting for OMRON, Iker Saenz, Product Marketing Manager, said, “We are delighted to launch these new connectors. We are certain that their small size will be of benefit to our customers’ designs, and they will also enhance the efficiency of inspection, assembly and maintenance.”

The XW4M and XW4N connectors are designed with simplicity of assembly in mind to eliminate human error. The products’ wiring efficiency is improved with a “hands-free” mechanism that keeps a screwdriver inserted, saving time and reducing risk of errors, as does the clear embossed pin-numbering on the packaging. A safe locking mechanism decreases the possibility of accidental release of wires.
