 Wago X-Com S pluggable terminal block connectorsWago Corp.’s new 2020 and 2022 Series X-Com S Pluggable Connector Systems merge touchproof, pre-wired assemblies with Topjob S terminal blocks. Wago X-Com S combines pluggable connectors, DIN-rail blocks and Cage Clamp S connections to streamline and eliminate wiring errors during panel- and machine-building.

Prior to machine shipment, Wago X-Com S simulates field wiring for machine testing, then provides fast, error-free wiring for re-assembly at the end-location. During final install, the system provides PLC-to-terminal block wiring and pluggable connections for cabinet door accessories, such as push-buttons, to terminal blocks.

Wago X-Com S shares a common profile with Topjob S terminal blocks — which is up to 30% more compact than other blocks — and accessories including jumpers, test plugs and marking, the company says. The new system provides simple push-in termination for solid or ferruled conductors; for other types, a screwdriver opens the clamping unit for insertion. Upon install, ground (earth) X-COM S models automatically make contact with the DIN-rail.

The terminal blocks are available in single- or double-deck configurations with 3.5 mm or 5.2 mm pin spacing; modular female plugs are available in 1- and 2- Conductor entries up to 15 poles. 1-conductor/1-pin, 2-conductor/1-pin, 2-conductor/2-pin and ground (earth) blocks are also available.

Wago spring pressure connection technology eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections, the company says. Products include DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the Wago-I/O-System; and others.
