Terminal blocks with connectors save time
Pluggable rail-mount terminal blocks from Wago offer more capabilities; its latest model, the X-Com S-System’s design allows both the input and output to be plugged in. The connector can be plugged in to the terminal block for the connection to be made in seconds, says Wago. Pluggable rail-mount terminal blocks are extremely easy to install in control cabinets, making them suitable for traffic and mechanical engineering where installation spaces can be tight and complex. There is no need to insert every single conductor into the right clamping point and then check for proper connections, says Wago, the connector can be positioned and plugged in using one hand.
For even greater convenience, pre-assembled cable harnesses can be quickly connected, adds Wago. All connectors can be coded and are protected against mismating. Coding prevents mismating of female connectors which have the same number of poles. The rail-mount terminal blocks also offer protection against accidental contact while unmated.
The X-Com S-System terminal blocks are compatible with all of the accessories used by the TopJob S terminal block family, allowing the immediate use of multi-line marking strips or jumpers.
The X-Com 2022-160x is available from June and the X-Com 2022-180x is available from September.
