The picoMAX by Wago Corporation uses a dual-purpose spring design for strong integrity and connection strength and is available in 2-12 pole configuration for a variety of panel feedthrough variants. Courtesy: WagoA shortened current path, minimal voltage drop and vibration-resistance up to 20 g enable WAGO Corporation's picoMAX to change the price-to-performance ratio for PCB applications. The Pluggable Connection System employs a dual-purpose spring design that applies the force of one contact spring for strong integrity and connection strength. This results in up to 30% space reduction for wire-to-board applications, segment-leading vibration-resistance and absolute connection integrity in operating temperatures up to 125°C.

picoMAX is based on a patented male header and female connector design. The dynamic contact force from one Cr-Ni stainless steel spring clamps conductors and connects the header pin. A truncated contact bridge separates the termination unit from header pin, minimizing contact resistance for absolute signal integrity. Applications: industrial electronics such as panel meters, controllers, data loggers and consumer electronics, e.g., garage door openers.

Terminations are simple: directly insert solid or ferruled conductors. Integrated push-buttons provide terminations for strandedconductors. Select units carry gripping plates with Sliding connector release. An unlocking tool is available for units without gripping plates.

picoMAX is available in 2-12 pole configurations for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, board-to-wire and panel feedthrough variants. It accommodates conductors 24-12 AWG and carries ratings up to 15 A/300 V. 3.5 mm, 5 mm or 7.5 mm pin spacing are available.
