What are terminal blocks?

A terminal block is a modular block with an insulated frame that is designed to secure multiple wires together. In this way, a terminal block can be used as a hub where maintenance can be performed more easily. They work by clamping down on a bare wire (European terminal block), or by securing a wire, or more commonly, a wire with a ring terminal on the end (standard terminal block). The bottom line is that when it comes to wiring, the easier you can make a job, and the more you can future proof it, the better. That is where terminal blocks come in. One question we see a lot is about the difference between terminal blocks and bus bars.
