DIN rail terminal blocks were forever changed when WAGO introduced its patented CAGE CLAMP® spring pressure termination technology in 1977. This reduced wiring time by up to 50%, while delivering a reliable, maintenance free connection independent of operator skill. The success of this innovation led to further developments such as CAGE CLAMP® Compact, FIT CLAMP®, POWER CAGE CLAMP, and TOPJOB®S with CAGE CLAMP®S.
Much has changed in WAGO's terminal block program over the past decades:
Thanks to the development of CAGE-CLAMP® connection technology, conductors can be terminated securely in mere seconds, independently of one another and with absolute reliability. Thanks to Push-in CAGE CLAMP® technology, the TOPJOB®S DIN-rail-mount terminal blocks are the industry’s most compact. Solid conductors, such as for power circuit wiring in small distribution boxes, can be terminated by simply pushing them in. And not to forget that ground connection to the carrier rail has replaced time-consuming screw connections with simple mounting of the terminal block, reducing the many work steps involved to a minimum.
All of these continuous changes were made possible because WAGO remains true to its values: We see innovation at the center of our corporate activities. Our customers throughout the world expect safe, reliable, high-performance and economical products from us – and we rise up to this challenge each and every day.
X Good Reasons
X-COM® and X-COM® S, as well as X-COM® S MINI pluggable rail-mount terminal blocks are the modular system for time- and cost-saving system wiring. X-COM® systems are ideal for system wiring especially in switchgear and control applications (e.g., railway technology).
The pre-assembled and pluggable X-COM® and X-COM® S systems offer X good reasons for using them:
On the one hand, connectors can be pre-assembled independently of the final assembly and pre-assembled groups can be tested before assembly. On the other hand, components can be quickly and reliably replaced via 100% mismating and touch-proof protection. This not only saves time and money, but also allows assembly by non-specialists. Even components that are not mounted on a DIN 35 carrier rail can be easily incorporated into the system wiring via X-COM®.
X-COM® – WAGO's wide range of pluggable rail-mount terminal blocks equipped with the proven CAGE CLAMP® connection.
X-COM® S – Benefit from a much more compact design, as well as Push-in CAGE CLAMP® S connection for direct termination of solid or ferruled conductors.
Whether it is for terminating solid conductors with one another or solid, stranded and fine-stranded conductors together, WAGO has the right connector to meet your most varying requirements.
From the original WAGO 273 Series PUSH WIRE® connector for junction boxes to the WINSTA® connectors for the building installation, WAGO offers a comprehensive range of electrical interconnection products based on innovative Spring Pressure Termination Technology. Only these clamping and connecting systems can guarantee proper functioning and 100% reliability – and that all without any maintenance.
Easily clamped in a matter of seconds (and, where required just as quickly released) – WAGO terminal blocks and connectors have proven themselves beyond a shadow of a doubt for more than 35 years now. In control cabinets or junction boxes, or on carrier rails – the reliability of these products makes them ideal for use in building automation and power engineering, in the automotive industry, in traffic and process technology and in mechanical engineering.
WAGO offers a wide range of pluggable installation connectors (acc. to IEC 61535/EN 61984), industrial connectors (acc. to IEC/EN 61984), and specialty connectors (e.g., shaft installation for elevators).
WINSTA®, the MULTI CONNECTION SYSTEM (MCS), and picoMAX®, provide you with three product series that enable quick and easy realization of the most diverse connection requirements.
The right solution for any application: WINSTA® for safe and time-saving building installation, PCB connectors for device connection, and flying leads for different mounting types.
Great diversity of PCB terminal blocks and connectors from the technology leader! WAGO offers the most extensive range of different Spring Pressure Connection Technologies for PCB connection and PCB connectors.
The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM is a flexible fieldbus-independent solution for decentralized automation tasks. With the relay, function and interface modules, as well as overvoltage protection, WAGO provides a suitable interface for any application.
Flexibility and freedom in planning are the major advantages of modular and fieldbus-independent devices used for decentralized automation. WAGO presented a fieldbus system in this sector as early as 1995 with which fieldbus nodes could be precisely matched to fit a specific application based on the building block principle. Since then, we have continued to expand and further develop this system.
I/O systems, interface modules, power supply and surge protection systems from WAGO are employed when the demand is for high performance and 100% safety and reliability, such as in industry, in process engineering, in building automation and, of course, in all safety-related and hazardous areas.
WAGO's AUTOMATION division provides solutions that are based on both fieldbus and spring pressure termination technologies, as well as interface modules for the industry, process technology and building systems sectors.
Separation into functional and wiring level.
Modern equipment design requires multiple components that can meet diverse challenges: User- and maintenance-friendly, limited budgets, safety and availability, simplicity in design and usage. These demands are more than satisfied by the different WAGO interface modules in their various designs, such as pluggable function and interface modules, narrow relay and optocoupler modules and modern, high-efficiency switch mode power supplies.
Benefits of WAGO interface modules:
The components are pluggable - reducing installation time.
Exchange or adjust components easily and trouble-free.
Reduce costs and compact design with smaller optocouplers and relay modules.
Fewer errors during commissioning using an interface module with standard interfaces.
The plan is set and the product is nearing completion. Suddenly the request for a reliable marking system is brought up. How often do you find yourself lost in a jungle of many manufacturers - especially true of printers, plotters or engravers?
With perfectly-attuned hardware and software, WAGO offers high-performance marking solutions, both for its own labels and cable markers, as well as those from our competitors.
