WAGO has introduced PCB terminal blocks for power electronic circuits which offer easy termination of wire connections.
The new Push-in CAGE CLAMP® with Lever terminal blocks include:
- The 2604 series for AWG 12 wire, rated for currents up to 20A
- The 2606 series for AWG 8 wire, rated for currents up to 31A
The CAGE CLAMP blocks provide for faster and easier wiring. The use of a lever to terminate wiring is intuitive and eliminates the need for a dedicated wiring tool. When the lever is operated, it gives an audible click and detent for clear indication of its position, either open or closed.
Solid and ferruled conductors may be simply pushed into the block to terminate them. For terminating stranded wires, the operator simply lifts the lever, inserts the wire and then returns to the lever to the closed position, securing the connection.
The blocks are available in versions supporting top entry, at 90° to the PCB, and side entry, at 0° to the PCB.
