Centre Stop (MDS)
As an additional option for more safety, Adels-Contact also provides screw connectors with a centre stop, which prevents both conductors from being inserted too far and guarantees precise clamping.
Glow-Wire Test to EN 60335-1
The standard for household appliances EN 60335-1 makes high demands on the glow wire test. This applies to appliances and devices that are permanently connected to the mains power supply and, that are not always supervised. These are among others cooling units, flow-type heaters, drinks dispensers etc. According to EN 60695-2 a glow wire test may be carried out on a component (i.e. a terminal block or a plug and socket connector) or, on a test board. During a test on a component, the wire glows at 750 °C and a flame must extinguish after 2 sec. max. When testing on a test board, temperature is 775 °C and afterglow time is limited to 5 sec. max.
