TE Connectivity


TE Connectivity’s (TE) BUCHANAN WireMate two-piece poke-in series of connectors provides designers with a three-directional solution for wall-mounting a device. Terminations are easy to make, and present no difficulties even to the novice installer.

Wires are routed through an opening in the wall to TE’s BUCHANAN WireMate connector mounted on a wall plate. Once stripped of insulation, wires may be easily poked into the terminal block device, providing a reliable termination without the need for tooling. Wire extracting is also easy by means of a simple lever. The system provides a flat connector surface reserved for wire marking. Color options are available.

The mating header is surface-mounted to the PCB in the device to be mounted on the wall.

The two-piece combination allows for wall mounting of a device in three different directions: into the wall, along the wall, or in a twisting or rotating motion.

Separate headers and connectors are available with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 positions. The connector/header combinations are supplied in 5mm and 8mm versions.
