Unlimited Freedom in LED Light Design

The New Lighting Connection Box: A Connection Solution for All Installation Types

Increasing miniaturization and the popularity of flat LED lights require universal connection options. WAGO’s new lighting connection box is perfect because it is housed outside the light. This gives lighting manufacturers more design freedom. Additionally, since it no longer must be opened for connection, no dirt and dust can get into the light during installation. The new box has ample installation space and is suitable for a large range of conductor cross-sections up to 5 × 2.5 m2 (14 AWG). Regardless of how the project is installed, lights with the WAGO Lighting Connection Box fit into every concept. It doesn’t matter if you choose a pluggable building installation, such as the WAGO Pluggable Connection System WINSTA® or a conventional installation type The integrated Linect® Interface also supports this flexibility – in addition to the pluggable version, a connector with a conventional conductor connection is also available.

Your Benefits:

  • Perfect connection technology for very flat lights
  • Suitable for all installation types
  • Large conductor entry for conductor cross-sections up to 5 x 2.5 mm2 (14 AWG)
