Comb Type Shorting Links (UFSL & SLC)
Interconnecting links/ Shorting links:-
Interconnecting links or shorting links are used to interconnect two or more terminal blocks of same type and at the same potential. it is recommended that factory made shorting links which are designed considering the rated current of the terminal block and its pitch are used for interconnection purpose rather than looping by wire which is not a reliable practice.
elmex offers following types of shorting links:-
Permanent Cross Connection Link Assembly (CCLA):-
Removable Shorting Link (RSL):-
In two types of shorting links as described above, interconnection is made using screws/ studs through a tapped hole in current bar. For certain types of terminal designs, viz. stud type terminal blocks, such interconnection is not possible. As a solution to this problem, shorting links are designed to interconnect adjacent terminal blocks through termination points (where wire is connected) like stud and nut assemblies or clamping units from sides between adjacent terminal blocks. These links are generally available in 2,3,4,5 and 10 ways.
Push-in Type Shorting Links (DSL/MSL/SSL):-
