HORA eTec electrical terminals: space, time and cost savings assured
Increasing numbers of industrial applications require space-saving electric terminal solutions, raising demand for aluminium instead of copper conductors to cut costs. Connecting aluminium conductors is not always easy, as the material places high demands on the terminal. Not nearly all terminals are up to the task.
HORA eTec terminals are user-friendly, cost-effective and safe. We follow the following application principles:
- Space saving
- Fast Assembly time
Compact electrical terminal design – quick and cost-effective in installation
HORA eTec terminals benefit from a compact and rugged design. Control cabinet construction benefits from up to thirty percent space savings in distribution blocks compared to conventional terminals using flat copper rails. Our electric terminals are quick and easy to install, ensuring shorter assembly times.
Cost savings are average twenty percent compared to conventional terminals on busbar systems. HORA eTec terminals do not need brake screws at all, thus keeping torque losses to a minimum during installation.
Safety assured on HORA eTec terminals
HORA eTec terminals are CE-compliant and approved according to all the major national and international testing standards, and separate power loss tests have been performed on them. Labelling or colour-coding terminal connection points such as for neutral conductors makes it easy to assign different potentials and follow their power paths.
Electrical terminal compatibility with copper and aluminium conductors
Hora eTec terminals are suitable for use with copper and aluminium conductors. Copper dominates some markets such as Germany, allowing copper conductors to be connected conversely, aluminium conductors are the first option in aluminium-dominated markets such as the USA, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe; a specialised triple coating on our terminals makes this possible by ensuring secure, durable contact with aluminium conductors. We have been gradually expanding our range ever since we established this business division.
The Hora eTec product range of electrical components consists of:
- Power distribution blocks
- Sub-distribution blocks
- Main line branch terminals
- Terminal blocks with an aluminium body
- Conductor connection terminals
- Neutral conductor rails
- Busbars and accessories
Applications include mechanical engineering, home and building services technology, industrial plant and equipment, automation, switchgear in electrical engineering, wind turbines, and solar technology.
