2.54mm pitch top entry PCB spring terminal block 2 ~ 24 poles
Spring terminal blocks will simplify your wiring and make your project more rugged. Instead of soldering wires to your perfboard, solder in these 0.1" pitch terminal blocks. There's a little spring contact so you can pull back on the plastic bit and slip in your 18 to 24 AWG solid or stranded-core wires. Each terminal block is electrically isolated from those next to it. Each block also has two solder pins per contact for strong mechanical strength when soldering in place.
These are the "right angle" style - the wires go in from the side. We also have "straight" style if you want the wire to go in from the top.
What we like about these terminal blocks is that they are re-configurable! Carefully removing the end cap on each one you can snap together any number and then reattach the end cap.
It is widely used in almost all electronic equipment, such as small eletronic watches, calculators, general computer, communication electronics equipment, military weapon systems, etc.

Terminal blocks selection guide:
How do we connect two wires? By stripping the insulation at the ends and twisting them together? Yes, it works. But, is it safe? We can apply insulation tape over the joint or use a wire connector. But what if there are a number wires that need to be joint/connected near each other? Or, what if multiple outgoing wires are to be connected to a single incoming wire? Then this method will neither be safe nor be convenient anymore. Here we use terminal blocks.
But there are so many kinds of terminal blocks. How can we choose the right one?
The difference between blocks can lead to problems if an incorrect type is used or if it is not connected properly. Follow the advice below:
• Look at the electrical equipment you are working on to see what type of connection it requires; normally you will have either a screw-in or plug-in connection. Screw-in wires are placed inside the terminal block and screwed into position, and they are most common for equipment that does not require high voltage protection. A variation on the screw-in connection is one held in place by a spring mechanism. This connector can reduce the time spent on the job because you simply clip it into place instead of removing and replacing the screw.
A plug-in connection has a male terminal at the end of the wire. This terminal is connected to the female port on the terminal block and forms a secure connection. Plug-in blocks are commonly used in the fuse boxes of automobiles.
• Once you know the type of connection that is required, you need to find a terminal block that fits the rest of your requirements. Consider what space you have for the connection and how many wires need to be connected. Terminal blocks are supplied in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs.
• Choose the correct rating. 3A, 5A, 15A, or 30A terminal blocks are widely available, and you'll want to buy the one that meets the highest current level that it will conduct in order to allow the most powerful piece of equipment to function.
