Versablock® Rotating Terminal Blocks are a family of rotating terminal blocks that offer termination arrangements configured for decimal and octal pair-count applications.
The product family is intended for use on central office (CO) frames, private automatic branch exchange (PABX) frames or any application where a compact terminal block is required.
The Versablock® Rotating Terminal Block is a molded plastic assembly measuring 200 mm (7.875 in.) wide, 98.4 mm (3.875 in.) high and 121 mm (4.75 in.) deep.
A variety of cross-connect terminal counts is available up to128 pairs. Cross-connect terminal options include both single and bifurcated wire-wrap and bifurcated quick-clip insulation displacement connection (IDC). Each Versablock® Rotating Terminal Block has a protective front cover to shield connections from wire clippings and other debris. The cover snaps on and off easily.
Jumper wires are routed through front and rear fanning strips. The front slots are aligned with the wire-dressing channels between terminal rows. This allows rapid cross-connect wire identification and promotes orderly dressing.
An integral locking system is employed on the connectors of connectorized units. This locking mechanism safeguards connectors against accidental uncoupling. The standard male connectors are equipped with windows that engage pre- installed spring clips at both ends of female cable connectors. The connectors may be readily disengaged by means of a ball- point pen or similar pointed object. This latching arrangement eliminates the need for additional locking hardware. Alternately, screws and tie-wraps may be used if desired.
The following mounting hardware is provided with each Versablock® Rotating Terminal Connecting Block:
• Two 12-24 x 3/8 inch screws
• Four 8-32 x 5/16 inch screws
• Four 8-32 hex nuts
Note: A QTH38B tool is required for terminating cross-connect (jumper) wires on blocks ordered with the bifurcated quick-clip IDCs on the cross-connect field.
