Pluggable Connector System carries ratings up to 15 A/300 V.
Press Release Summary:
Feb 25, 2013 - Intended for PCB applications, picoMAXÂ® employs dual-purpose spring design that applies force of one CAGE CLAMPÂ®S contact spring for vibration-resistance up to 20 g and absolute connection integrity in temperatures up to 125Â°C. Dynamic contact force from Cr-Ni stainless steel spring clamps conductors and connects header pin.Â Offered in 2–12 pole configurations with 3.5, 5, or 7.5 mm pin spacing, picoMAX supports wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, board-to-wire, and panel feedthrough connections.

WAGO picoMAX® PCB Pluggable Connector System
Press release date: Feb 01, 2013
Form Drives Function:
picoMAX® is based on an all-new patented male header and female connector design. The dynamic contact force from one Cr-Ni stainless steel spring clamps conductors and connects the header pin. A truncated contact bridge separates the termination unit from header pin, minimizing contact resistance for absolute signal integrity. Applications: industrial electronics such as panel meters, controllers, data loggers and consumer electronics, e.g., garage door openers.
Terminations are simple: directly insert solid or ferruled conductors. Integrated push-buttons provide terminations for stranded conductors. Select units carry gripping plates with Sliding connector release. An unlocking tool is available for units without gripping plates.
picoMAX® is available in 2–12 pole configurations for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, board-to-wire and panel feedthrough variants. It accommodates conductors 24–12 AWG and carries ratings up to 15 A/300 V. 3.5 mm, 5 mm or 7.5 mm pin spacing are available.
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. Products: DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
