WAGO Power Distribution Blocks
Press release date: December 1, 2012
GERMANTOWN, WI – Acting on panel-builder requests, WAGO Corporation’s Engineering Services division has developed five DIN-rail mount Power Distribution Blocks. Routing higher-current power supplies to PLCs, I/O and associated components within space-restricted panels, four models are rated up to 30 A. The fifth, an ultra-slim model, is rated up to 65 A.
Featuring two poles for connecting both sides of the power supply output and daisy-chaining, 30 A block connection configurations range from 2x8 to 2x24. The 65 A unit is a single-pole block. The 30 A units stand 1.47’’ tall and feature a 38mm depth — nearly 27% more compact than typical power distribution blocks.
To better serve panel-builders, WAGO Power Distribution Blocks replace traditional, screw-based terminations with CAGE CLAMP® Spring Pressure Technology. This minimizes installation time (no torquing) for all conductors AWG 28–12. It also eliminates connections-related warranty claims — the maintenance-free connections are vibration-proof and thermal cycling resistant. The 30 A blocks employ Slide Stops to prevent sliding on DIN-rail once mounted.
Manufactured at WAGO’s Wisconsin HQ, the Power Distribution Blocks are pre-marked via ink-jet and WAGO’s miniature WSB markers; custom marking is available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-DIN-RAIL for pricing and availability.
