Terminal Strips:  A Very Useful Electrical Connector

Hundreds of electrical tools and devices are used to increase efficiency and support the demands of the ever-changing industry.

Along with these, all devices also require efficiency in terms of its connection from one output to another especially its electrical components which is one of the major aspects of today’s devices.

One of the most commonly used electro-mechanical device that is used to join electrical terminations and the electrical circuit is the Electrical Connector.

Today we’re going to talk about the terminal blocks from these parts:

Terminal Block is used as a temporary connector for portable devices with easy assembly and removal functions or as a permanent connector of an electrical joint between two or more wires or devices.

One of its types is the Terminal Strips, also known as terminal boards or terminal blocks.


What is a Terminal Strip?

A Terminal Strip (also called as terminal boards/ block) is a simple type of an electrical connector which provides a convenient and safer means of connecting various electrical wires without cutting through the insulation to physical join both ends using insulation tapes (electrical tapes) or the like.

It is modular and insulated in feature to easily connect two or more wires together which is mostly arranged in a long strip easily connecting electrical outlets to the mains.

These terminal strips consist of a clamping component and a conducting strip which is flexible to the needs and variation of wires used.

Other than its flexibility they are also designed with bases that can be easily mounted or unmounted from a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) or a mounting rail, which are all readily available in various Terminal Blocks Manufacturers.

Since most of it is in strips in appearance, it is easier to increase its numbers according to your needs and keeps connection secure, safer and organized.


Types of Terminal Strips

Since terminal strips are convenient devices for connecting wires of various devices, they are categorized according to their structure and device types, may it be for appliances, automotive, and/ or industrial and commercial use.


These Terminal Blocks are also offered in three basic sizes:

1.) The 20amp model which is the smallest is normally used electronics and data connections. 2.) The 30amp model is the intermediate sizes that are commonly almost to anywhere, making connection of wires conveniently.

3.) Lastly, the 65amp model is used in heavy duty pumps and motors and can accommodate up to 6 awg thick wires. In addition to this, various Terminal Block Manufacturers provides from 2- 18 (or more) circuit terminal, which can also be easily added with another terminal block or a terminal jumper.

Structure Types

       Terminal Blocks are also classified into three structure types:

  1. Single Feed Through

This is one of the most basic types of terminal block because it only has one input and output contacts.

It is used for a wire-to-wire connection wherein two distinct wires are inserted in either side of the terminal.

This is one of the most basic types of terminal block because it only has one input and output contacts.

It is used for a wire-to-wire connection wherein two distinct wires are inserted in either side of the terminal.

2.Dual Level Terminal Blocks

The Dual Level Terminal Blocks has two levels of input and output contacts.

This is created to efficiently saves spaces for devices and equipment that requires multiple wirings, which is at the same helps to avoid tangling of wires and promotes organization.

  1. Three- Level Terminal Blocks

The same with the Dual Level Terminal Block, these terminal blocks has another level added also used for space efficiency and organization of wirings throughout various devices and equipment.

Device Types

Terminal Strips are also categorized according to its application and the device they connect in. It is divided into 6 types:

  1. Ground Circuit Terminals

These are the terminals which are single feed types in input and output contacts which are grounded to the panel or the DIN rail.

  1. Thermocouple Terminal Blocks

This is some terminal blocks used in connecting thermocouple lead connectors for metal connections used to measure temperature.

Some thermocouple connectors are clamp in form to easily connect both thermocouple leads on both sides of the block.

  1. Fused Connection Terminal

This is a type of terminal strip wherein the wires is connected using not just a connection strip but with a fuse wherein it serves as an added protective layer for when a short circuit occurs the wires connected to the fuse will be the only one affected.

  1. I/O Blocks and Sensor Blocks

These two types of terminal are used to make a connection between a device and a controller. Sensor blocks may also connect three or four wire devices like proximity sensors.

  1. Power Distribution Blocks

The Power distribution block is used for a convenient and safer way of distributing an electrical power from a single input to multiple electrical outputs, giving an organized and economical connection of wires.

  1. Disconnect Blocks

These blocks are commonly known as switch blocks used to easily disconnect a certain device to main output just by lifting a lever or a knife switch. It is a convenient way of connecting and disconnecting without removing the wires.

Uses of Terminal Strips & How It Works

Terminal strips are essential in any electrical system, particularly when connecting a series of electrical wires. Read on to know its uses:

  1. For quicker troubleshooting– The terminals in a terminal block are very accessible and easy to troubleshoot. In cases where you have to check for a broken connection in butt connectors, you don’t have to cut the wires several times and end up with shorter wires.
  2. Organize connections – Many wired connections can look messy and confusing. With terminal blocks, you can conveniently arrange everything and get a clean set-up for all your equipment.
  3. For installing ceiling lights– Terminal blocks are helpful when you have multiple wires to your ceiling light. You can use terminal jumpers to assemble branch wires to each light.
  4. Running new wires when replacing a new electrical panel – A terminal block is needed to make an organized arrangement when you replace your circuit breaker panel since the existing wires may be too short to reach for the new wires. You can set up the wires on the terminal block following the panel sequence.

How Do You Install a Terminal Strip?

Whatever type of connection you are trying to put up, a terminal block comes in a range of sizes and shapes so you can find one that is fit and suitable for your desired connection.

Here are the steps on how you can install and set up a terminal strip:

  • Identify the terminal strip or block type that you need.

Firstly, you have to check on your electrical equipment and find out what type of connection is needed. Should it be a screw-in connection or a plug-in connection?

If your equipment set up do not require a high voltage protection, then a screw-in connection is what you need. It is easy and doesn’t require much time to install because you just need to place the wires and screw it into the terminal block.

If you are going to use a plug-in connection, you connect the male terminal into the female port on the terminal strip or block.

  • Get the right terminal block.

Once you have chosen the type of connection you would set up, the next step is to look for the terminal block that is appropriate and matching to your equipment’s requirements.

Choose the right size and shape for the number of wires you’re going to connect and pick the one with the highest current level for proper functioning.

  • Secure the connection.

Whether you’re setting up the Screw-In or Plug-in make sure that you fasten and lock the connection.

Check for loose wires and tighten the screw in place to avoid dangers like fire or melt the insulation for your screw-in connection.

For the plug-in, run the electrical wires correctly and securely in the terminal block.

  • Test and Correct.

After the installation of the terminal strip/block, check if the equipment will work. If it doesn’t work, you have to correct and check the wires and ports or use another terminal strip just to rule out if it is a broken one.

For such a tiny piece that people might often overlook how terminal strips offered so much possibility and efficiency to all electrical equipment that the list of why a lot of electricians uses and promotes its use is due to the following.


Let’s talk about the advantages:

  1. Safety Features

One of the most important parts of any equipment is its safety features to its user. Before, wiring connections, may not be the most common cause of fatality but a common cause of electrical accidents.

Wiring connections is so exposed that your only protection while you connect electrical wirings is your screwdriver, or probably a glove that prohibits you from accidently touching the crucial parts. But now, because of the creation of Terminal Strips, electrical accidents have been greatly decreased because of its features.

Terminal strips are designed into two types: Touchproof and Non-Touchproof. Its goal is to prevent any accidental shock and it really does that. The Touchproof terminal block is designed wherein the screws are recessed and covered by an insulating cover making it impossible for any finger to accidentally touch it because the only thing that could reach inside the cover is the screwdriver itself.

While the Non-touch proof is almost the with touch proof but more slightly exposed, but its design still prohibits you from touching the screws itself because of the slightly recessed position of the screws and its wall-like insulating divider for every block helps not just protecting your connections but also protecting you.
