Pluggable connector system
Wago Corporation’s picoMax eCom Pinstrip Pluggable Terminal Blocks support OEMs, manufacturing automation, test/measurement and process electronics. The eCOM provides additional efficiency and usability by eliminating the pin housing. Push-in (solid and ferruled conductors), and push-button terminations (stranded conductors) expedite high-density PCB manufacturing and installation. For PCB maintenance, the terminal block is removable like a pluggable connector.
It keeps board-level controls low-profile for cost-sensitive, stationary machinery. They are well-suited for: Building automation (HVAC controls, fire/security, lighting, etc.), test and measurement devices (data loggers, calibrators, energy-monitoring) as well as vending and dispending machinery within processing and food manufacturing.
eCom carries factory-installed straight or angled pins for horizontal or vertical PCB mounting. Several female connectors can be grouped side-by-side without pole loss. Available in 3.5 mm, 5.0 mm, and 7.5 mm pin spacing, all units carry a convenient testing port parallel to conductor entry. Options: strain relief plate and THR-compatible versions.
