WAGO Intros Higher-Voltage Terminal Block with Spacer
High voltage terminal block.
Germantown, WI — Pacing the burgeoning LED market, WAGO Corporation's 2060 Series push-button SMD-Terminal Block gains a 600V/9A 2-pole unit. To date, developers of high-output LED devices have accommodated design variations by installing two, 600V 2060 Series 1-pole units with the requisite spacing between them on the PCBs. WAGO's new high-voltage 2-pole unit simplifies design and expedites manufacturing. Thus the designer need specify and automatically place only one component for high-output LED devices such as roadway lights.

Borrowing the housing from its 3-pole sibling (rated 250V), the high-voltage 2-pole unit replaces the center port with a spacer. This enables it to match the 600V rating of its 1-pole sibling. 2060 Series is UL/cUL Recognized. The units are available in tape-and-reel packaging for automated assembly.

The 2060's labor-saving pushbuttons eliminate hand-soldering of PCB leads. Accommodating solid/stranded conductors (AWG 24-18) within one unit — even for tinned, top-coated or pre-bonded ones — terminations are simple. Solid conductors are pushed-in; removal is push-button actuated. Flexible or stranded conductors utilize pushbuttons for termination/removal. Pushbuttons also permit conductor removal for error correction, eliminating scrap and rewiring. OEMs can also meet Energy Star requirements for end-of-life components; swap-out/drop-in units via push-button. CAGE CLAMP'S Spring Pressure provides maintenance-free, thermal cycling-resistant terminations.

The 2060 Series joins the 222 Series LEVER-NUTS lever-actuated Splices in the company's growing portfolio of LED interconnect solutions. Offered in 2-, 3- and 5-pole variants, LEVER-NUTS accommodate solid and fine-stranded conductors AWG 28-12 for LED-based applications. Terminations are simple: Raise lever, insert stripped conductors and lower lever.
