Green Terminal Blocks

I recently ordered a refurbished Simrad VHF but it came without the green terminal blocks needed to connect a loud hailer. Also my tacktick NMEA system uses similar blocks and I lost one in the bilge.

Where can I buy spare terminal blocks? I'm not even sure what they are called but a friend said they are "PCB Terminal Blocks". Also, how do I determine what size blocks to order? ...there are no markings on the blocks I have.

I found this right angle PCB style block by doing a Google Image search under "terminal blocks". There are quite a number of sources.

terminal block - KF2EDGK - KEFA (China Manufacturer) - Terminal - Electronic Components Products - DIYTrade China manufacturers suppliers

Re: Green Terminal Blocks

Thanks for the help, it was useful but most found via google images are direct suppliers from China and, in my experience, this can be difficult when you only need a handful of product. Plus I still have the problem of figuring out which size blocks Simrad and Tacktick use.

Re: Green Terminal Blocks

Look up Pacer Marine they have European Terminals very close to what you are looking for. Around 5$ each. Also very good wire and terminals , have used them for years on my boat and others

Re: Green Terminal Blocks

Just an update for anyone with the same problem.

I ordered a few of the "Green Terminal Blocks" of different sizes from Digi Key and none of them fit. So I am still trying to find out what size blocks Simrad uses.

I did find out that the proper name of these blocks are WAGO or Phoenix connectors.
