ETTERS, PA (November 9, 2010) — FCI, a leading developer of connectors and
interconnect systems, announces the expansion of its terminal blocks product
portfolio with new plug and socket configurations, all ideal for industrial
and instrumentation applications.

“Terminal blocks have been around for many years, but they are still going
strong. They are essential for many circuit board designs,” said Koos
Steding, FCI’s global product manager.  “With a complete pluggable terminal
blocks range, FCI strengthens its position in the industrial and
instrumentation market.”

The expanded line will make available various new configurations including
front screw, key backside, contact downside plugs and 2-wall, 45°-angled,
feedthrough sockets, and accessories such as polarization keys. All
configurations are available with or without the screw-locking-side-flange
feature. Green-colored plastic is standard but optional black, blue and grey
color plastics are also available. Screw-type option, slotted or Philips
(cross-head) screw-types are now available, as well as custom product
printing. The entire FCI terminal block range is built with the proven
rising-cage-clamp technology (lift system) to ensure long life and reliable

In its continuing effort to supply superior customer service, an enhanced
terminal block micro-site enables customers to find the products of their
choice within three clicks. It shows four major product categories by photo,
and when one of the four photos is clicked, the user is guided to the
product details within that category. After selecting a product, the user is
immediately directed to a dedicated web page with all product details
including specifications, customer drawings and 3D mechanical models.

The terminal block micro-site offers customers direct access to product
solutions and provides downloadable information such as product brochures,
catalogs, product training videos and an online cross-reference.
