For a Wide Variety of Applications: WINSTA® Boxes

WINSTA® boxes are suitable for a wide range of applications. For example, the WINSTA® Distribution Box supports control of multiple sunblind drives via SMI and connection of DALI lights. The system box allows you to implement large-scale distribution boxes, as well as small controllers and switching solutions. Our project service offers tailored planning and production of WINSTA® on the basis of the customer’s specific requirements.

The Benefits for You:

  • Compact solution with pluggable outlets
  • Central, clearly organized electrical installation thanks to WINSTA® boxes
  • WINSTA® Distribution Boxes also available for self-assembly
  • WINSTA® System Box: DIN-rail-mount components can be installed thanks to TS-35 adapter

For Precisely Fitting Solutions: Cable Assemblies from the WINSTA®System

The cable assemblies are available for many families within the WINSTA® pluggable connector portfolio. The catalog range already includes a large selection of different cable types and lengths. In addition, custom solutions can be created as needed, precisely tailored to the specific application. The customer-specific solution is ready for installation upon delivery and can be integrated into the installation with an easy, direct plug-and-play approach.

The Benefits for You:

  • Ready to install: quick and easy installation at the construction site
  • Less waste: precisely fitting solutions avoid cable waste
  • Time savings: no further on-site cable processing necessary

For Round Conduits and Pipes: WINSTA® RD

The circular connectors are ideal for installation in empty conduits, e.g., in prefabricated house construction. Thanks to their round shape, this family’s assembled cables fit easily through appropriately sized holes and installation pipes.

The Benefits for You:

  • Conductor cross-section range: up to 2.5 mm2 (14 AWG)
  • Rated current: 16 A / 20 A
  • Portfolio of 3- and 4-pole pre-assembled cables with 17.5 mm outer diameter for easy plug-and-play connection
  • Pluggable integration into the electrical installation of components like wall outlets via adapter

For the Standardized Bus: WINSTA® KNX

The solution for standardized bus systems in building and industrial automation like KNX, LON® and ETHERNET

The Benefits for You:

  • For extra-low voltages up to 50 V
  • Nominal current: 3 A
  • Compact design, standardized interface
  • Two codings for customization with protection against mismating

For Maximum Flexibility: WINSTA® IDC

Underfloor boxes, for example, are powered through flat cables from 1.5 mm2 to 16 mm2 and the associated connection components, which can be combined with WINSTA®MIDI and WINSTA® KNX pluggable connectors.

The Benefits for You:

  • With one turn per pole, you can reliably connect the WINSTA® IDC feed-in or tap-off modules at any point on the corresponding flat cable.
  • Suitable for bus and power lines or for bus and power combined in one cable
  • Easy installation without cable interruption thanks to convenient insulation displacement connection (IDC) technology

New Lighting Connection Box with Linect® Interface from WAGO

More Freedom in Lighting Design

These days, there is often not enough space within modern LED lights for suitable field-wiring terminal blocks. WAGO now has a solution: the new connection box for lighting and electrical equipment with a Linect® interface is easy to attach outside the light. This leaves more room for creativity and makes the connection process easier for electricians, while also protecting the light from contaminants and dust, since it no longer has to be opened to connect it.

The Benefits for You:

  • Generous installation space outside box for conductor cross-sections up to 5 × 2.5 mm2
  • Integrated Linect® interface and connector for conventional connection
  • Suitable for either pluggable building installation with WINSTA® or conventional installation
