Wago: Compact, surface-mount terminal blocks
Suited for solid-state lighting applications that often utilize metal-core PCBs, including compact or miniaturized LED modules and LED bulbs, Wago’s 2059 SMT PCB terminal blocks series offer an extremely small (2.7 mm high), fast, cost-effective alternative to soldering leads.
Designed for the smallest installation spaces, the light color and low profile of the PCB terminal block substantially reduce on-board LED shadowing.
The 2059 Series features a PUSHWIRE connection of solid or pre-bonded conductors, with a tool-operated release slot, enabling a high-quality and maintenance-free connection between drivers and LED modules. Wire removal capability (in case of wiring errors or at the end of module life) is an exclusive feature in this size.
Available in 1-, 2- and 3-pole configurations, group arrangement is also possible without losing any poles. Offering similar functionality as the field-proven 2060 Series, the 2059 accommodates conductors 26-22 AWG with pin spacing of 3 mm, and is available in tape-and-reel packaging for automated assembly. The 1-pole variant is rated for 3A/600V; the 2- and 3-pole variants are rated for 3A/250V.
