1 S3 in a Nutshell




2 Features


Push-in termination for some products may not be new, however, IDEC has been developing and adapting to market needs since their first switch contact block in 1958, and this progression into the Push-In technology shows IDEC desire to continue to be one of the market leaders for Safety and Technology.

With the PUSH-IN connection technology, the force on the conductor is generated by a pressure spring made of high-quality stainless steel. 

The spring sits in a cage and is automatically opened upon connection and only released when a release tool is used. 


IDEC S3 Push-in Technology


With this innovative PUSH-IN technology, the amount of time spent on wiring is reduced, a recent study demonstrated a saving of up to 55% while providing a high conductor retention force and complete way of handling multiple conductor types. 



Safe and reliable connections are crucial, especially under harsh conditions, such as those encountered in the process industry and applications with high vibration. PUSH-IN technology guarantees optimal contact security and ease of handling, even in demanding applications.
