PCB Terminal Blocks and Pluggable Connectors for Power Electronics
For power electronics, WAGO’s range contains two families of PCB terminal blocks and a pluggable connector system for cross sections up to 25 mm2 and nominal current up to 76 A. These compact and high-performance PCB terminal blocks – with or without levers – are easy to use and also offer maximum wiring flexibility. The MCS MAXI 16 Pluggable Connector System is also the world’s first pluggable connector with a lever for power electronics.

picoMAX®: The Pluggable Connection System
One Cr-Ni-steel spring, double the contact force applied: This principle makes picoMAX® up to 30 percent more compact than other connection systems.
- Compact design: Reduces space by up to 30%
- Radically simplified contact system
- The special design, innovative spring pressure connection technology and new insulation material guarantee absolute contact reliability – even at higher surrounding ambient temperatures
- Exceptionally high vibration resistance of up to 20g for wire-to-board connections, thanks to integrated locking latches and a female connector that’s almost fully enshrouded in the male header.
- Efficient testing via test slot parallel to connector entry
