PUSH-IN termination technology: how does it work?

This technology is particularly user-friendly: take a stripped solid or fine-stranded conductor with a crimped ferrule, insert it into the clamping point as far as it will go, and your safe & secure connection is already complete.

Alternatively, when connecting stranded wire, insert the wire while holding down the pusher with a flat-blade screwdriver. As easy as that.

With the PUSH-IN connection technology, the spring sits in a cage and is automatically opened upon connection (pushing in of the ferrule) and only released when a release tool is used.

Easy installation with full safety. Don’t compromise.

Safe and reliable connections are crucial, especially under harsh conditions, such as those encountered in the process industry, special vehicles and applications with high vibration. PUSH-IN termination technology guarantees optimal contact security and ease of handling, even in demanding applications.

Simple wiring

Tool-less connection. Ferrules and solid wires can be connected simply by PUSH-IN insertion, without any screwdriver. To remove the ferrule, a flat-blade screwdriver is inserted into the pusher.

Fast connection: see the demo in video

Time saving

PUSH-IN connections are made simple by inserting the wire, reducing wiring time by approximately 55% compared to conventional screw terminals. Since the wiring can be done regardless of the skill level of the operators, this also contributes to time saving.

Strong reliability

PUSH-IN connection technology provides a finger-safe structure and vibration & shock resistance. What’s more, the space-saving design means better workability in a smaller space.

  • Stays firmly in place
  • Finger-safe structure

Since the ferrule is held in place by a spring loaded terminal, the wiring remains taut and vibration resistance is improved.

IP20 Finger-safe protection enables wiring to be performed without direct contact between screwdriver and conductive part.

Enhanced control panel switches

The PUSH-IN termination technology on the 22mm control panel switch is proven to save you up to 55% in wiring time. These industrial switches commonly used in the control panel & machine build applications are available from IDEC with PUSH-IN termination technology. This option is available on the YW and HW series, which are your “standard industrial style switches” and the CW series (aesthetic flush mount switch series).
