WAGO PCB Terminal Blocks and WAGO Pluggable PCB Connectors for Power Electronics

More Power on Your PCB

The trend toward downsized components presents new challenges for power electronics. The increased performance density brought about by combining the signal and output layer on the PCB also impacts connection systems. PCB terminal blocks and pluggable PCB connectors must be compact to reliably transmit currents while simultaneously functioning flawlessly with the PCB under demanding conditions.

Your Benefits:

  • Comprehensive product line-up, ranging from 0.2 to 25 mm2 (24–4 AWG)
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP® termination
  • Wider conductor range and higher current carrying capacity
  • Connect conductors both horizontally and vertically to the PCB
  • Testing both parallel and perpendicular to conductor entry

PCB Terminal Blocks with Push-in CAGE CLAMP® and Levers

PCB terminal blocks with Push-in CAGE CLAMP® and levers (2604, 2606 and 2616 Series) can be intuitively operated without tools via the levers. These terminal blocks, with their compact size, high current carrying capacity and their integrated connection technology, provide for faster and easier wiring. Lever operation provides a secure connection when the easy-to-use lever closes the clamping unit. The lever also clearly locks into position (open/closed) with a tactile and audible click. Conductors can be connected both horizontally and vertically to the PCB and testing can be performed parallel or perpendicular to conductor entry.

Advantages:

  • Faster and easier wiring
  • Tool-free, intuitive lever operation
  • Secure connection via easy and effortless lever actuation into closed position
  • Lever clearly locks into position (open/closed)

PCB Terminal Blocks with Push-in CAGE CLAMP®

PCB terminal blocks with Push-in CAGE CLAMP® (2624, 2626 and 2636 Series) are the ideal choice for connecting compact devices in space-restricted or panel feedthrough/through-panel mounting applications. Tool-actuated termination is performed parallel to conductor entry. This enables the PCB terminal blocks to be easily used, even with a high density of components on the PCB. Conductors can also be connected horizontally and vertically to the PCB. Therefore, testing can be performed parallel or perpendicular to conductor entry. Integrated Push-in CAGE-CLAMP® Connection Technology enables both solid and ferruled conductors to be connected by simply pushing them into the unit.

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)

MCS MAXI 6

WAGO’s new MCS MAXI 6 Pluggable Connection System extends the power electronics family with levers. Accommodating conductors ranging from 0.5 to 10 mm2 (20–8 AWG), the MCS MAXI 6 Connectors have increased current carrying capacity, making them ideal for higher current requirements. Their intuitive levers allow conductors to be wired directly in-hand. MCS MAXI 6 is available with 7.62 mm (0.3 inch) pin spacing.

The Benefits for You:

  • Easy in-hand wiring via lever actuation
  • Tool-free, intuitive lever operation
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP® termination
  • Wider conductor range and higher current carrying capacity
  • Wire-to-board and wire-to-wire connections
  • 100 % protected against mismating
  • Based on UL 1059, both male headers and female connectors can handle up to 600 V
  • Mechanically reinforced via optional strain relief plates

MCS MAXI 16

The pluggable connection system with a lever for power electronics – the only one of its kind in the world: The MCS MAXI 16 Pluggable Connection System with its innovative lever is ideally suited for your power electronics with a conductor cross-section range of 0.75 to 25 mm2 (18–4 AWG). MCS MAXI 16 is available with 10.16 mm (0.4 inch) pin spacing.

The Benefits for You:

  • Easy in-hand wiring via lever actuation
  • Tool-free, intuitive lever operation
  • Wider conductor range and higher current carrying capacity
  • 100 % protected against mismating
  • Push-in CAGE CLAMP® termination of both solid conductors and fine-stranded conductors with ferrules
  • Wire-to-board and wire-to-wire connections
  • Coding and locking options available

Maximum Safety in Minimum Space

WAGO’s MCS MAXI 6 PCB Connection System offers tremendous design flexibility with three new connection locking systems.

Maximum safety in minimal spaces and greater flexibility for device design – this is what the three MCS MAXI 6 locking systems offer, giving electronics developers the perfect locking option to protect their applications from unintentional connector disconnection.

All three locking solutions are intuitive and can be operated with one hand. The side locking lever is optimized for applications where there is sufficient space next to the connector for actuation. The center locking lever is particularly well-suited to applications where connectors are placed directly next to each other on a device front because it locks compactly without additional grid width. However, if there’s no space left, an additional center locking mechanism that is front-actuated above the conductor entry will secure connections in extremely space-restricted conditions.

Frontline personnel worldwide benefit from readily understandable and quick operation thanks to a straightforward design and tool-free, automatic latching that provides both audible and haptic feedback when mated properly.

Your Benefits:

  • Maximum safety and flexibility for device design
  • Three space-saving models for compact and robust designs
  • Incredible simplicity thanks to clear, tool-free and intuitive snap-in locking with one hand
