Wago Introduces Din Rail Mount Utility Outlet

Germantown, WI, Sept. 2002 - The new WAGO Utility Outlet is a convenient power source in control cabinets for connecting test equipment, lighting, solder irons, laptops, etc. At only 60 mm wide, the compact DIN rail mount design offers an easy, space-saving installation. Labor and cost savings are also realized since the unit comes pre-assembled, thus eliminating the need to purchase the box and outlet separately and assemble them prior to installation.

The WAGO 826 feed through terminal block provides the power input, featuring the CAGE CLAMP connection technology that ensures a fast, error and maintenance-free connection. With the 826 terminal block, the WAGO outlet also features built-in test points and color-coded marking capabilities to ensure safe wiring. As an additional safety feature, the ground pin on the receptacles is positioned at the top to prevent loose metal objects from shorting the hot and neutral pins together.

"We wanted to offer an outlet that would give our customers a simple, secure connection in the control cabinet where an additional power source is often needed," says Bill Lydon, Product Manager at WAGO. "Now, our customers can continue to utilize our CAGE CLAMP connection technology throughout the entire cabinet, even in the outlet box."

The WAGO utility outlet is rated at 120V, 15A and can accept 28-12 AWG conductors (UL/CSA Pending). It is competitively priced at only $28.42 each, list price.For more information, contact Inside Sales at 1-800-DIN-RAIL, N120 W19129 Freistadt Road, Germantown, WI 53022.
