WAGO Introduces New TOPJOB®S
Germantown, WI, October 2003 - WAGO Corporation is pleased to announce a Quantum Leap in spring pressure connection technology. The new TOPJOB®S series of DIN rail mounted terminal blocks utilizes the revolutionary CAGE CLAMP®S spring pressure connection technology. This innovative connection technology allows solid wire, tin-bonded wire or ferruled stranded wire to be connected by simply inserting the wire into the clamping mechanism (no tools required), as well as connecting all wire types via a simple screwdriver actuation - just like the original CAGE CLAMP®.
"In designing this new series, WAGO has succeeded once again in providing the market with a product that offers the most progressive electrical interconnect technology to date," said Jim Bachle, Electrical Product Manager with WAGO. "Additionally, this new series offers our customers tremendous cost saving opportunities in both hard and soft costs."
When compared to the alternatives currently available in the market place, the TOPJOB®S series with CAGE CLAMP®S technology offers up to a 30% reduction in size, up to 50% reduction in wiring time, as well as cost effective features such as dual jumper slots with push-in comb style jumpers and a unique center marking strip on a continuous reel. Additionally, this series offers a modular test plug accessory for easy troubleshooting, three marking positions per terminal block, and an enlarged wire opening to accept the maximum rate AWG with a ferrule.
The TOPJOB®S series is capable of terminating 28 to 4 AWG, and is rated at 600V and up to 87 amperes (UL/CUL pending). The series is available in 2, 3 and 4 conductor feed through or grounding terminal blocks and constructed of a flame resistant (UL94V-0) polyamide 6.6 insulating housing, copper alloy current bar and stainless steel clamping mechanism. The 28-12 AWG version is currently available from stock with the other wire sizes to follow.
WAGO is the worldwide leader in spring pressure connection technology designed to eliminate loose wires as a result of vibration and temperature cycling, as well as provide a highly reliable, corrosion resistant, and maintenance-free connection. Our complete line of spring pressure connection products include DIN rail mount terminal blocks, chassis mount terminal blocks, PCB mount terminal blocks, relays, signal conditioners, power supplies, surge suppressors, the WAGO I/O SYSTEM and more.
