The Function and Classification of PCB Terminal

Terminal: It is a relatively basic accessory used to realize electrical connection, and it is also a fixed part of the terminal or connection between connecting wires, electrical appliances and control boards.

PCB Terminal: Generally speaking, it is a kind of accessory product for PCB  to realize electrical connection, which is divided into the category of connector in industry.

In addition, the PCB terminal has some other names: because its shape is generally in a row shape, it is also known as wiring block, terminal block, wiring board and so on.

The function of PCB terminal is to ensure the electrical connection is firm, safe and beautiful, and to improve the convenience of electrical installation and maintenance. 

Generally speaking, PCB terminal can be divided into the following types:

1. PCB Plug-in Terminal

It consists of two parts plug-in connection, one part presses the wire tightly, and then plugs into the other part, this part is soldered to the PCB board, suitable for automatic electrical connection system.

2. PCB Direct Welding Terminal

Through the principle of lifting and lowering of the wire clamping body, the welding foot and the wire clamping body are divided into two parts. The shell is strong and reliable, and the stitch distance is accurate. It is suitable for the power supply industry, the controller field, and the access control system.

3. PCB Fence Type Terminal

It can realize safe, reliable and effective connection, especially in high current and high voltage environment.

4. PCB Spring Terminal

It is a new type of terminal with a spring-loaded device, which has been widely used in lighting, elevator lifting control, instrumentation, power supply, chemistry and automobile power, etc.
