WAGO 2061 Series SMD PCB Terminal Block with Pushbuttons
Press release date: April 1, 2014
GERMANTOWN, WI – WAGO Corporation introduces the new 2061 Series SMD PCB Terminal Blocks with Pushbuttons, ideal for PCB-based LED lighting and industrial electronics. The perfect connection for incoming power to an LED driver, or for higher power LED modules, the 2061 Series accommodates a broad range of conductors, making it highly versatile for worldwide applications.
The surface-mount terminal block features CAGE CLAMP®S connection technology, which allows for PUSHWIRE® connection of solid or pre-bonded conductors; or the connection of stranded, unprepared conductors via pushbutton operation. Simply depress the pushbutton to open the springs. The cost-effective 2061 Series is a manufacturing-friendly, repeatable alternative to hand-soldering leads. With easy handling via side-entry wiring and top-of-unit actuation, the 2061 Series is available as 1-, 2- and 3-pole variants. Terminal strips of different poles can be assembled side-by-side without pole loss, allowing for a reduced number of variants and lower production costs.
A total height of just 5.6 mm helps conserve space and reduce shadowing in LED applications. As an exclusive feature in this size, the pushbutton enables wire removal in the case of wiring errors or at the end of a module life. The 2061 Series is available in tape-and-reel packaging for automated assembly. A larger variant than the field-proven 2060 Series, the new surface mount PCB terminal block features 6 mm pin spacing with a 10A current rating and up to 16 AWG, as well as a rated voltage of up to 600V (1P).
The surface mount terminal block is especially suited for solid state lighting applications that often utilize metal-core PCBs, such as higher power LED modules, LED drivers, and other industrial electronics where SMD technology and low profile are desirable features. As the industry's most compact and easy-to-use 16 AWG SMD terminal block for wiring industrial electronics and LED modules, the 2061 Series sets new standards for compact wiring applications.
WAGO is the leader in spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections.
