Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors


Connectors for large cross sections

April 2012 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

The range of Wago connectors for rail-mounted terminal blocks has been expanded to include models for large conductor sizes. Installed in the jumper slot, the connectors function as pluggable power tap connectors for TopJob S 2006, 2010 and 2016 series terminal blocks.

The new, larger pluggable connectors connect sub-assemblies or test circuits, for example electric motors, while providing power tap or power supply options for testing. Custom connector strips can also be created by snapping modular connectors together. The connector range includes spacer modules that allow individual terminal blocks to be skipped within an assembly. An optional strain relief plate (734 series) is available and can also be fitted upon completion of assembly.

The new connectors for 10, 8 and 6 AWG (6, 10 and 16 mm²) rail-mount terminal blocks offer a current rating of 32 A and a rated voltage of 500 V for conductors up to 10 AWG (6 mm²). By expanding the line of pluggable connectors, the range of applications for Wago rail-mounted terminal blocks has been increased. Customers can add pluggable connections to their standard through connections with the flexibility of six TopJob S rail-mount terminal block lines ranging from 2001 to 2016.
