Universal Terminal Block

Product Announcement from ERICO

Universal Terminal Block-Image


  • Universal Applications - The universal block is very versatile and can be used in many wiring schemes, such as the ERICO Protection Panel or the Faraday Shield Approach to achieve a low impedance path to earth. With the Faraday Shield Approach, the block is easily installed to the ground plane for either "clean side" (equipment) or "dirty side" (field) installation.
  • Facilitates proper wiring practices - The Universal Terminal Block separates arrester input and output wiring to eliminate electrical coupling. Without this separation, electrical coupling can corrupt information and damage sensitive electronics.
  • Integrated Test Terminal - Allows for testing of all external cables with disassembly.
  • AAR Hardware - ERICO Terminal Blocks accept all standard AAR hardware.


Used to provide a low impedance path to earth, and is part of the ERICO Protection Panel (EPP) system.
