Linect®-Connectors for Three-Phase Current
WAGO’s new Linect® three-phase current connectors now also provide easy plug-in connection of lighting systems with three-level circuit topology. This simplifies and expedites lighting installations in shopping centers, sporting facilities and more.
The new WINSTA® 770 Series Linect® T-connector for pluggable lighting connections is designed for conductors up to 4 mm2/AWG 12 and a maximum nominal current of 25 A — ideal for long cable runs, such as those in large-scale projects.
WAGO has developed the matching counterpart for the lighting industry: The 294 Series Linect® lighting connector. This new 5-pole connector is designed for standard connection of solid, stranded and fine-stranded conductors ranging from 0.5 mm2 to 2.5 mm2(AWG 20–14) and a maximum nominal current of 24 A. The Linect® 294 Series includes versions with ground contact and is available with snap-on type strain relief housings.
Linect®-Connector for Standard Lighting Connection
The Linect® 770-6229 Connector offers all the benefits of a pluggable lighting connector. It connects to standard electrical building installations and snaps onto the Linect® light from the outside. This makes light replacement a “snap” for maintenance or retrofits, while requiring no electrical circuit interruption. The 3-pole Linect®connector is protected against mismating and is equipped with CAGE CLAMP®S connection technology. It is designed for any conductor type (solid, stranded and fine-stranded) up to 2.5mm2/AWG 14 and a maximum nominal current of 24 A.
Beyond designers, electricians and wholesalers, light manufacturers will also benefit from the new Linect® connector. In Scandanavia, for example, standard Linect® lights can now be used, making complicated specialty lights with SCHUKO wiring a thing of the past. “Conventional electrical installations are upgraded by the Linect® connector. Lights no longer need to be opened or specially prepared by the manufacturer for connection from the outside using special elements. This is a determined step in the direction of standardization,” states Stephan Albrecht, responsible product manager of ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTIONS at WAGO.
