Description


  • Universal connection for all conductor types
  • Two conductor entries per pole
  • For looping through power or data buses
  • Bus connection is retained, even when unmated
  • Push-in termination of solid and ferruled conductors
  • With coding fingers

Safety information 1:
The MULTI CONNECTION SYSTEM (MCS) is designed without breaking capacity for compliance with DIN EN 61984. When used as intended, MCS Connectors shall not be connected/disconnected when live or under load. The circuit design should ensure header pins, which can be touched, are not live when unmated.
