WAGO 2059 Series SMT PCB Terminal Block with Pushbuttons
Press release date: May 1, 2014
GERMANTOWN, WI – Due to their compact size and ease of use, WAGO Corporation’s new 2059 SMT PCB terminal blocks are the ideal solution for extremely small LED modules, offering a fast, cost-effective alternative to soldering leads.
With a height of merely 2.7 mm, the extremely compact 2059 is not only the smallest in WAGO’s product range, but it also reduces the space required for the connection technology. 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
Surface-mount terminal blocks are especially suited for solid state lighting applications that often utilize metal-core PCBs, including compact or miniaturized LED modules and LED ‘bulbs’. 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.
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.
