Maximum Safety in the Smallest Space

Center locking lever and strain relief plate for WAGO MCS MAXI 16 Pluggable PCB Connectors offer safety in the most compact design.

Both the highest safety and an easy-to-use design – in the smallest of spaces – is provided by the center locking lever with and without strain relief plate for WAGO's 832 Series MCS MAXI 16 Pluggable PCB Connectors. This makes WAGO the market's most compact solution for the locking of pluggable PCB connector for power electronics.
The intuitive center locking lever protects against unintentional disconnection of the connector – without additional pin spacing width, allowing the connectors to be placed directly next to each other. In combination with the strain relief plate, conductors are secured against pull-out forces. At the same time, the user has a solid gripping plate that makes plugging and unplugging of the connector easier.

Your Benefits:

  • The most compact center locking lever on the market for pluggable PCB connectors for power electronics
  • Intuitive mechanism allows easy locking and unlocking with one hand.
  • The strain relief plate secures the connected conductors and facilitates installation as a gripping plate.
