Wago Corporation: Pluggable connector system
WAGO Corporation’s picoMAX® eCOM Pinstrip Pluggable Terminal Blocks support OEMs manufacturing automation, test/measurement and process electronics.
New to the picoMAX® PCB Connector family, the value-driven eCOM provides additional efficiency and usability by eliminating the pin housing. Push-in (solid and ferruled conductors), and push-button terminations (stranded conductors) expedite high-density PCB manufacturing and installation. For PCB maintenance, picoMAX® eCOM is removable like a pluggable connector is — no costly rewiring.
picoMAX® eCOM keeps board-level controls low-profile for cost-sensitive, stationary machinery. Ideal for: building automation (HVAC controls, fire/security, lighting, etc.), test and measurement devices (data loggers, calibrators, energy-monitoring) as well as vending and dispending machinery within processing and food manufacturing.
eCOM carries factory-installed straight or angled pins for horizontal or vertical PCB mounting. Several female connectors can be grouped side-by-side without pole loss. Available in 3.5 mm, 5.0 mm and 7.5 mm pin spacing, all units carry a convenient testing port parallel to conductor entry. Options: strain relief plate and THR-compatible versions.
picoMAX® is an all-new, patented PCB Connector System. Dynamic contact force from a Cr-Ni CAGE CLAMP®S stainless steel spring clamps conductors and connects the header pin. A truncated contact bridge minimizes contact resistance. picoMAX® accommodates conductors 24–12 AWG and carries ratings up to 15 A/300 V. Configurations: 2–12 poles for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, board-to-wire and panel feedthrough designs.
