Wago Corporation: Push-button SMD-Terminal Block
WAGO Corporation’s 2060 Series push-button SMD-Terminal Block gains a 600V/9A 2-pole unit.
To date, developers of high-output LED devices have accommodated design variations by installing two, 600V 2060 Series 1-pole units with the requisite spacing between them on the PCBs. WAGO’s high-voltage 2-pole unit simplifies design and expedites manufacturing — specify and automatically place only one component for high-output LED devices such as roadway lights.
Borrowing the housing from its 3-pole sibling (rated 250V), the high-voltage 2-pole unit replaces the center port with a spacer. This enables it to match the industry-leading 600V rating of its 1-pole sibling. 2060 Series is UL/cUL Recognized. The units are available in tape-and-reel packaging for automated assembly.
2060 Series’ labor-saving push-buttons eliminate hand-soldering of PCB leads. Accommodating solid/stranded conductors (AWG 24–18) within one unit — even tinned, top-coated or pre-bonded ones — terminations are simple. Solid conductors are pushed-in; removal is push-button actuated. Flexible or stranded conductors utilize push-buttons for termination/removal. Push-buttons also permit conductor removal for error correction, eliminating scrap and rewiring. OEMs can also meet Energy Star requirements for end-of-life components — swap-out/drop-in units via push-button. CAGE CLAMP® S Spring Pressure provides maintenance-free, thermal cycling-resistant terminations.
Lever-Actuated LED Splices:
2060 Series joins the 222 Series LEVER-NUTS™ lever-actuated Splices in WAGO’s growing portfolio of LED interconnect solutions. Offered in 2-, 3- and 5-pole variants, LEVER-NUTS™ accommodates solid and fine-stranded conductors AWG 28–12 for LED-based applications. Terminations are simple: Raise lever, insert stripped conductors and lower lever.
