WAGO Provides New SMD PCB Terminal Block for Small LED Modules

The 2059 Series compact SMD PCB terminal blocks stand out thanks to their compact size, their small pin spacing and a high rated voltage, making them particularly well-suited for small LED modules in spotlights, downlights or street lights. The smallest WAGO terminal block, with a mere overall thickness of only 2.7 mm, is extremely flat, covers a wire cross section range of AWG 26 to AWG 22 (0.14 to 0.34 mm²), for solid conductors, and has pin spacing of 3 mm. The PCB terminal block is designed for a rated current of up to 3 A and a rated voltage of 160 V.

Design Benefits of the WAGO Terminal Blocks
The terminal block small size means it requires less space for the connection technology used. Its low profile, along with its light color, reduces on-board LED shadowing.

•    The terminal blocks are available as 1-, 2- or 3-pole versions and can be connected in series without losing any poles. This means that no extra terminal block versions need to be kept on stock when a higher number of poles is required - increasing flexibility and reducing costs.
•    Use and handling is especially easy, as solid conductors can simply be directly inserted and also removed quickly using an operating tool.
•    The PUSH WIRE® connection provides a high-quality and maintenance-free connection.

A Variety of Terminal Blocks form the SMD Family

"Besides the smallest terminal blocks of the 2059 Series, WAGO covers an extensive range of applications with its 2060 and 2061 Series, up to maximum conductor cross sections of 1.5 mm²", declares Jens Brandhorst, product manager of ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTIONS at WAGO Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co. KG in describing the range of products. The 2060 and 2061 Series terminal blocks are equipped with an integrated push-button that can be used to very easily connect fine-stranded conductors and to remove any type of connected conductors.

The 2060 Series SMD PCB terminal blocks are ideal for surface-mounted PCB applications. Just 4.5 mm high and a conductor cross section of 0.2 to 0.75 mm², these terminal blocks offer great benefits in the smallest of space. The 2061 Series SMD PCB terminal blocks have a cross section range of 0.5 to 1.5 mm² and are perfect both for industrial applications and for direct feed-in of LED modules.

All SMD PCB terminal blocks are available in tape-and-reel packaging for use in automated machines, allowing them to be fully integrated into SMT assembly and processing.

The new products will be listed in the online catalog by May 2014.
