Time-saving accessories join terminal block line

Wago’s modular connectors, vertical jumpers, colored jumpers and component plugs enable users to extend TopJobs functionality.

Wago CorporationTwenty accessories, including Wago-exclusive models, have joined Wago Corporation’s TopJobs Terminal Block family. Designed as time-saving accessories, the Modular Connectors, Vertical Jumpers, Colored Jumpers and Component Plugs conveniently enable users to extend TopJobs functionality.

Modular Connectors: Push-in Jumper Slot Connector and exclusive Conductor Entry Connector can be configured for test harnesses or serve as permanent pluggable connectors. TopJobs terminal blocks have a retention spring for vibration-proof connections of jumpers and modular connectors.

Vertical Jumpers: TopJobs Vertical Jumpers convert a multi-level terminal block into a common potential. Available in two- or three-levels, Vertical Jumpers streamline stocking — specify one multi-level block and field-modify with appropriate jumper for potential conversion.

Colored Jumpers: Available in red or blue and from two- to 10-pole configurations. Colored Jumpers can be used to indicate positive (+) and negative (–) signals for sensor applications.

Component Plugs: Among nine Component Plugs are two market-exclusives: a mini-PCB-compatible variant and component plug model that inserts into the jumper locations of two adjacent TopJobs terminal blocks. The jumper-compatible model also features an integrated retention spring for vibration-proof connections. Component Plugs create custom products by adding diodes (backlash protection), small resistors (signal conversion or leakage current) or mini-PCBs (custom circuits).
