PCB Terminal Blocks and Connectors for Power Electronics

The trend toward electronic miniaturization requires that both power and signal levels be integrated on PCBs. The results: Increased power density requiring connection technologies suited for both compact and high-performance PCB terminal blocks and connectors. Connection technology is also a basic criterion for selecting the right terminal block/connector in demanding applications, such as power supplies, frequency inverters or servo drives. Additional decisive factors
include simple and easy operation, as well as wiring flexibility.

Every Advantage – All in One!

WAGO combines all these criteria into a comprehensive and varied range of PCB terminal blocks and connectors for power electronics. WAGO‘s PCB terminal blocks can be operated via lever or operating tool. A multitude of variants are available in various pin spacings allowing currents up to 101 A (IEC) or 85 A (UL) and voltages up to 1000 V (IEC) or 600 V (UL) to be transmitted in double-pinning configuration. WAGO‘s lever-equipped MCS MAXI 6 and MAXI 16 Connectors enable intuitive actuation without tools for simple, secure in-hand wiring. Both PCB terminal blocks and connectors also offer a unique space-saving feature: Beyond their
nominal cross section, they connect most solid and fine-stranded conductors up to the next larger cross section size. This saves space on the PCB and reduces device
connection costs. Thanks to WAGO‘s innovative spring pressure connection technology, our PCB terminal blocks and connectors for all applications ideally
blend ergonomics and safety. Push-in CAGE CLAMP® enables solid and ferruled conductors to be connected by simply pushing them into the unit, while guaranteeing secure and maintenance-free connections for all conductor types. Furthermore, our products are not only simple and easy to use, but also offer maximum wiring flexibility.

Advantages:

  • Comprehensive product range: 0.2 … 25 mm² (24–4 AWG)
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP® termination of both solid and ferruled conductors
  • Wider conductor range and higher current carrying capacity
  • Conductor connection and mating direction both horizontal and vertical to the PCB
  • Testing both parallel and perpendicular to conductor entry

 

PCB TERMINAL BLOCKS WITH Push-in CAGE CLAMP®

WAGO’s PCB terminal blocks with Push-in CAGE CLAMP® are ideal for compact device connections. They are compatible with existing industrial solutions and can be perfectly integrated into both space-limited and panel feedthrough applications. Push-in CAGE CLAMP® is suitable for all conductor types and enables solid and ferruled conductors to be connected by simply pushing them into the unit. Tool-actuated termination is performed parallel to conductor entry. WAGO’s PCB terminal blocks terminate conductors both horizontally and vertically to the PCB. Furthermore, they can be tested both parallel and perpendicular to conductor entry.

Advantages:

  • Compact device connection
  • Ideal for panel feedthrough and space-restricted applications
  • Operation parallel to conductor entry
  • Compatibility with existing industrial solutions
  • For applications complying with EN and UL 61800-5-1 (details upon request)

PCB TERMINAL BLOCKS WITH Push-in CAGE CLAMP® AND LEVER

WAGO’s lever-equipped PCB terminal blocks offer faster and easier wiring. They combine a compact design, high current carrying capacity and the advantages
of Push-in CAGE CLAMP® with the benefits of intuitive lever operation. The lever permits 100% tool-free operation and provides a secure connection when the easy-to-use lever closes the clamping unit. The lever also clearly locks in position (open/close) with a tactile and audible click. WAGO’s PCB terminal blocks with levers terminate conductors both horizontally and vertically to the PCB. Furthermore, they can be tested both parallel and perpendicular to conductor entry.

Advantages:

  • The lever engages and keeps the clamping point open, freeing hands for quick and easy wiring.
  • The lever position clearly signals whether the clamping point is open or closed.
  • All conductor types can be connected and disconnected without tools.
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP termination of both solid and ferruled conductors
  • Connection is secured when easy-to-use lever is quickly and simply lowered into closed position.

LEVERAGE CONVENIENCE

Pluggable PCB Connectors with Levers – Connect Conductors up to 25 mm² (4 AWG)

 

For wiring assemblies in the field, highly accessible and simple-to-operate connection points are essential. WAGO is literally leveraging its expertise with the MCS MAXI 6 and MCS MAXI 16 to offer the world’s first pluggable connectors with levers for intuitive, tool-free usage. With this feature, connectors can be wired in-hand
easily and quickly. Furthermore, simply lowering the lever always ensures a reliable contact. Both wire-to-wire and wire-toboard versions of pluggable PCB connectors are available and designed for a nominal cross-section of 6 or 16 mm² (10 or 6 AWG). The top advantage where space is at a premium: Beyond their specific nominal cross-section, the PCB connectors connect fine-stranded conductors up to 10 or 25 mm² (8or 4 AWG). Connection with Push-in CAGE CLAMP® is suitable for all conductor types and enables solid and fine-stranded conductors with ferrules to be connected by simply pushing them into the unit.

Flexible Coding – Ready to Adapt

The coding of the new MCS MAXI 16 Connectors brings additional benefits: They are coded internally, simplifying individual coding changes – even when the
connector is already installed in the enclosure. Complicated adjustments to the enclosure cutout are no longer required. Another unique feature is the ability to quickly and easily recode when plugged in. To keep installation simple and minimize the number of assemblies, both male headers and female connectors feature the same symmetrically formed coding fingers. MCS MAXI 6 Connectors are also easy to code. Depending on the version, separate coding pins are available or the coding pins can be broken off directly from the female connector and inserted into the corresponding male header.

100% Safety

As with all MCS products, the pluggable connectors also provide 100% protection against mismating to ensure maximum safety for field wiring. The integrated protective contact caps within the interface of the MCS MAXI 16 Male Headers ensure additional user safety when unplugged. Yet another highlight: An optional
interlock enables fast, reliable connection and also prevents accidental disconnection.

Advantages:

  • The lever engages and keeps the clamping point open, freeing hands for quick and easy wiring.
  • All conductor types can be connected and disconnected without tools.
  • Product range: 0.2 … 25 mm²
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP® termination of both solid and ferruled conductors
  • Wider conductor range and higher current carrying capacity
  • 100% protected against mismating
  • Coding and locking options available
