ELECTRONICS: WAGO Corp.’s new 828 Series Feedthrough Terminal Block offers several industry-exclusive features to simplify the feeding of currents up to 40A (AWG 6) through enclosure walls. As the only feedthrough terminal block utilizing CAGE CLAMP® Spring Pressure Connection technology, all terminations are tool-free and maintenance-free. Simply lift the lever, insert a stripped conductor (16-6 AWG) into the termination port and lower lever.Rated at 300V/40A, the 828 Series features single-piece construction to simplify the necessary panel opening and eliminate alignment issues during panel assembly. Installation is efficient: insert block through a rectangular panel opening and secure it to the panel via standard locking clip. An exclusive integrated lockout feature accommodates a security seal or similar tagout marker, limiting unauthorized access to external terminations. A WAGO-exclusive panel gasket seal provides a splash-resistant seal to the enclosure for additional protection and reliability.
