WAGO 3-pole LUMI-NUTS for Safe Luminaire Service
WAGO Corporation has added the 873-903 three-pole model to the 873 Series LUMI-NUTS(TM) luminaire disconnect line. The 873-903 is a safe electrical disconnect for high-feature linear fluorescent fixtures that use a dimming circuit or the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) protocol.
LUMI-NUTS(TM) meets NEC410.74 (G), CEC30-308 (4) and CSA/UL Standard 2459 for Insulated Multi-Pole Splicing Wire Connectors, ensuring safe service of linear fluorescent fixtures. Power input/line side accommodates AWG #18-12 solid and AWG #16-12 stranded conductors; ballast/load side accepts industry standard AWG #18 solid conductors.
The 873-903 provides a best-in-class rating of 6A/600V and utilizes a UL94V-0 flame-rated polyamide 6.6 housing for flame retardation. A touch-proof design - whether mated or unmated - eliminates need to disconnect power for service. An integrated locking latch prevents unintentional separation of the mating halves. The connectors are keyed for mis-mating protection and color-coded for simplified wiring. Mating halves carry on-unit markings to further reduce wiring errors.
LUMI-NUTS(TM) connectors provide PUSH WIRE® terminations - insert prepared conductor into unit. Terminations are maintenance-free, as well as vibration- and temperature-cycling resistant.
"LUMI-NUTS(TM) has undergone extreme testing in excess of 39A for 500 hours without failure," said Jim Bachle WAGO Industry Manager-Lighting Market. "This performance confirms LUMI-NUTS(TM) suitability for applications ranging from retrofits to elevators."
WAGO is the leader in CAGE CLAMP® 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; WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
