New connectors for industrial lighting connections

Wago Corporation's new connectors for its Winsta series speed electrical connections for industrial lighting.

08/04/2011


WAGO Corporation added three new connectors to its Winsta Mini and Midi Connection Systems. The MINI 890 Series received 4- and 5-pole units for space-restricted applications. Mid-range MIDI 770 Series added a new 2-pole connector, enabling MIDI to continue providing the broadest array of connectors for standard installations.

Mini 890 Series:

Winsta Mini’s 4- and 5-Pole Plug and Socket Connectors join existing 2- and 3-pole connectors. Engineered for modern lighting fixtures, such as LED luminaires, Winsta Mini is rated up to 600 V and 14 A (16 AWG). Winsta Mini carries a UL Current Interruption Rating of 5 A, 600 V for disconnection under load, providing safe swap-out of components such as drivers or LED modules.

Midi 770 Series:

Aimed at high-bay fluorescent fixtures and other electrical installations, a new 2-Pole Plug and Socket Connectors join Winsta Midi 3-, 4- and 5-pole units. The plug-and-play 2-Pole connectors are rated up to 600 V and 20 A (12 AWG) and carry a UL Current Interruption Rating of 10 A, 600 V. Thus, Midi is apparently a safe means of disconnection for hot-swappable components such as pumps and small motors. MIDI options include snap-mount, flying lead and distribution connectors that enable use of pre-configured assemblies, streamlining on-site installations.

Winsta Pluggable Connection Systems:

Winsta Midi reportedly accommodates conductors AWG 20–12 up to 20A; Mini accommodates AWG 22–16 up to 14A. Both feature 2- to 5-pole plug and socket modules for cord-end or snap-in panel mounting; various pluggable distributors (e.g., T-connectors, H-connectors); as well as distribution boxes. Safety features: Touch-proof housings and connections that are 100% safeguarded from mismating — coding is optional. Mated pairs incorporate optional Positive Locking to ensure halves stay properly connected.
