Push-In Relay Test - Play Ball - Phoenix Contact

Play Ball!

We tested our PLC PT Relay push-in termination technology by hitting some baseballs. Some studies show that exit speeds of a hit baseball leaving a baseball tee could be 95 miles per hour or greater. We wanted to see how the retention force of our technology would hold up to the force of a hit baseball. After slugging some baseballs, this test helped prove that our PLC PT Relays have an awesome retention force. The wire connection stayed intact with no backing out.

PLC PT Relays equipped with our push-in termination technology have a reliable, long lasting connection, ideal for high vibration applications. The retention force is five times the IEC requirement. Terminations are made by simply pushing the ferruled wire into the PT terminal, using very little force. No specialized tools are required, which helps reduce installation time and costs. The PT relays ensure faster wiring, up to 60 percent faster than the screw termination style. To disconnect the wire, simply insert a screwdriver into the orange release key, push and release the wire. Our push-in technology creates a high degree of usability and includes a wide range of connections; from 26 AWG to 14 AWG wire sizes.

Leviton Whole House Surge


To some, whole house surge protection is achieved simply by installing a surge protective breaker or panel at the home's main breaker load center(s). However, true whole house surge protection requires surge protective devices at various levels within the home to provide the most reliable protection - a surge protection network if you will.

UL - a global independent safety company that tests for and certifies product safety - has categorized surge protective devices into various Types to indicate their specific performance characteristics and areas of usage. A true whole house surge protection network requires three Types of surge protective devices to effectively protect sensitive electrical and electronic equipment from the damaging effects of voltage surges.
