The sensor/actuator terminal blocks feature several potential levels and one signal level. The potential levels are for power supply and if necessary, sensor grounding or shielding. The signal level is for signal transmission from sensors or to actuators.
A single terminal block housing accommodates two sensors or actuators. Each potential level shares a common current bar - 2 terminals per level. The signal level has two separate current bars - 2 independent signal paths, each with a width of 3.5 mm.
Commoning Potential Levels
On the potential level, standard jumpers can be used for commoning with no limitation. Each terminal block has two internally commoned jumper slots. This allows an unlimited number of terminal blocks to be commoned with the use of even pole count jumpers.
Commoning Signal Level
Two jumper slots are available on the signal level for commoning with standard jumpers. This level features two independent signal paths. Terminal block versions with an LED have only one jumper slot for testing or commoning.
For sensor/actuator terminal blocks without ground connection to the DIN-rail, a ground connection can be made by commoning the ground connection (green/yellow) from the supply terminal block to the adjacent sensor/actuator terminal block.
Orange power supply terminal blocks with the same profile can be placed in the center of the assembly to distribute power left and right, or on either end of the assembly. They are available in cross sections up to 4 mm2 / 12 AWG.
The continuous marking strips (2009-110) offer the industry’s fastest and most versatile marking system. The multi-line marking feature is an industry first and allows individual signals, as well as groups, to be easily identified.

Marking using 3.5 mm WMB markers is also possible. They are available as WMB Inline markers on a reel (2009-113) and as WMB marking cards (793-35xx).
TOPJOB® S sensor/actuator terminal blocks can be marked on the top and on the side without covering the jumper slot.
A pivoting marker carrier (2000-121) can be snapped in as a retrofit for marking additional levels.
TOPJOB® S sensor/actuator terminal blocks provide a fast overview – even when wired. Both a center LED, as well as commoning and marking on the signal level quickly tell you what you need to know.
