ELECTRONICS: Highlighting WAGO Corp.’s new 2002 Series TOPJOB®S Fuse Terminal blocks are two exclusive blocks: a four-conductor, mini-automotive fuse holder block; and a four-conductor fuse disconnect block with a spare 5 x 20 mm fuse holder. Utilizing the common TOPJOB®S profile, Fuse Terminal blocks streamline assemblies, facilitating WAGO-exclusive vinyl ID marking strips. WAGO’s TOPJOB®S line now offers a common profile for feed-through, disconnect/testing and fusing of analog signals.Ideal for applications from machinery to boats, the Fuse Terminal blocks offer two test plug locations on each side of the fuse, and time-saving accessories including: push-in, staggered and step-down jumpers; component and test plugs; and modular connectors. The Fuse Disconnect and Fuse Plug Carrier blocks offer an optional PCB with an SMT-LED that indicates blown fuses and is connected via onboard spiral springs — no soldered blown fuse indicator.
TOPJOB®S Terminal blocks employ push-in terminations for ferruled or solid conductors and screwdriver actuation for stranded conductors. CAGE CLAMP®S Spring Pressure Connections are vibration-proof, maintenance-free and temperature cycling-resistant.
