WAGO PCB Terminal Blocks for Power Electronics

WAGO has expanded its line of PCB terminal blocks to help engineers address the trend of electronic miniaturization, which requires that both power and signal levels be integrated onto PCBs. This trend has changed connection technology requirements by increasing power density. leading WAGO to offer its 2606 and 2626 Series PCB Terminal Blocks with 12.5 mm (0.492") pin spacing. Additionally, its 2616 and 2636 Series PCB Terminal Blocks are now available with 15 mm (0.59") pin spacing.

By expanding the range of PCB terminal blocks for power electronics with additional variants, currents up to 101 A (IEC) or 85 A (UL) and voltages up to 1000 V (IEC) or 600 V (UL) can be transmitted in a double-pinned configuration, This satisfies the industry’s growing need for PCB terminal blocks that are compact yet able to reliably transmit high currents under demanding conditions.

Beyond size considerations, an essential criterion for selecting the right terminal blocks is connection technology. The new PCB terminal blocks are equipped with Push‑in CAGE CLAMP®, a connection technology that guarantees quick and safe connections while allowing both solid and ferruled conductors to be terminated by simply pushing them in.

At a Glance:

  • Compact footprint with a large connection range of 0.2 to 25 mm² (24–4 AWG)

  • Quick and easy wiring via Push-in CAGE CLAMP® connection technology

  • Wide conductor range and high current carrying capacity, for voltages up to 1000 V per IEC or 600 V per UL
