Locking male connectors simplify panel feedthroughs

March 2012 Electrical Power & Protection

Wago has expanded its Mid Multi Connection system (MCS-MIDI) to include locking male connectors with snap-in flanges. Using these male connectors, panel feedthroughs for 5–2,5 mm panel wall thickness can now be quickly and easily implemented without screws. This saves the user valuable time and money as the recess in the panel is less complicated and does not require any drilled holes for anchors such as screws. As a result, the number of parts required for the feedthroughs is reduced, along with the logistics involved.

The male connectors with snap-in flanges are available with pin spacing of 5 mm, 5,08 mm, 7,5 mm and 7,62 mm and can accommodate conductor sizes of 0,08 to 2,5 mm² (AWG 28–12). These connectors are designed for the following rated values: 12 A and up to 630 V for pin spacings of 5 and 5,08 mm; 12 A and up to 1000 V for pin spacings of 7,5 and 7,62 mm. This wide application range means that male connectors can be combined with all versions of the Wago female connectors available on the market. As a result the function of an existing screw locking mechanism or of locking levers can be retained.
