Spanish term or phrase: 'conexiön tornillo & tornillo'
This data has come to me in list format,with no context, sometimes abbreviated. I'm trying to do as much as I can without having to refer to the client, so any ideas are welcome. It's a manual for welding and this refers to electrical parts/components. The only help I can offer is manufacturer'S name in ( ).

RACK TSX PREMIUM 8 POSICIONES NO EXT.
(tsx premium is a robot, ext= extensible?)

'conexiön tornillo & tornillo' as in these:

MODULO 16E 24Vdc CONEX. TORNILLO
MODULO 16E RELÉ CONEX. TORNILLO

BORNERO POR TORNILLOS ENT/SAL

What I don't get really is the 'screws' - how to slot them in here.

Screw down
Explanation:
Hi Ailish,

On welding gear, sometimes currents are so high that as an extra measure of security terminals are screwed down. Perhaps this is what is being referred to.

Think car batteries and that screw down connection and you'll get an idea - though the screw down connections on welding machines are a good bit more chunky than that ;-)

All the best,

Berni
