Title: POWER WIRING DEVICE
Abstract:
A power wiring device (100) includes a front housing (112) having a power component (116) at a user interface (118) and a rear housing (114) having a wire interface (120). The front and rear housings define a cavity (190). Control electronics (110) are received in the cavity and include a circuit board (180) and a controller (186) coupled to the circuit board. The controller has control circuitry (184) for controlling a power function of the power wiring device. The power component is coupled to the circuit board and affected by the power function. A plurality of power terminals (150) are coupled to the circuit board. The power terminals each have a base (152), circuit board contacts (154) extending from the base and being terminated to the circuit board, and wire contacts (156) extending from the base. The wire contacts have quick connect interfaces for direct, quick connection to corresponding wires (104) of building wiring (106).
