Explanation:
Well, let's see. This is very difficult to translate in arabic, but first please check this site and look at the picture of these "terminal blocks" (yes, it's called terminal block not block)

Now that you have imagined it, lets talk about hte functionality. Basically it "stacks" some wires for the purpose of organizing. But, to avoid electromagnetic interference, these blocks are made from an insulating material, that's why I said العازلة

Of course, this is the general type. Other uses might need another explanation, but you got the point.

Anyway, I searched for the exact phrase that you have provided, and I reached the original site where the text is to be translated. I think the context supports the above explanation.

check out the sites in below, they are very informative.

This question should have been classified as "electronics", not Music. Yes, it's 'audio electronics' but this does not justify the wrong classification as "MUSIC"

If you can change the question classification, do it for the purpose of the general benefit.

Example sentence(s):
  • Practically every electrical system or component on a car uses some sort of terminal block. Whether they are screw-in, plug-in or PCB types, these versatile connectors can help make sense from what could just as easily be a rat's nest of wiring.
  • The term "terminal block" is used to describe any type of connector that allows more than one wire to be connected to another in the same circuit without a hard splice.
