Terminal blocks provide freedom for designing and wiring LED modules
07 June 2017
Two SMD PCB terminal block variants from WAGO offer engineers flexibility while maximising time savings and minimising space.
Used with LED modules and optical systems, the 2075 Series and 2065 Series incorporate push-wire connection for quick, hands-free wiring.
The 2075 Series through-board SMD PCB terminal block allows installers to connect conductors on the back of the LED modules, vertically to the PCB, while maximising space for light distribution. Its unusual design incorporates only the bare essentials. With no housing and at 3.9mm high it is extremely compact, minimising on-board LED shadowing. This makes it ideal for linear and square LED modules, as well as spotlights. The terminal block accommodates solid conductors with a cross section ranging from 0.34 to 0.75mm2. Solid conductors can be released from the terminal block with a twist and pull motion.
At 2.7mm tall, WAGO’s 2065 Series SMD PCB terminal block is even more compact for minimal LED shadowing, while accommodating solid and fine-stranded conductors ranging from 0.2 to 0.75mm2. This range encompasses all conductor sizes and types common to LED technology in space-restricted applications. Most LED applications do not require protection against accidental contact, and so the 2065 Series is designed without an insulated housing to further reduce profile and weight.
In addition to standard LED and chip-on-board (COB) module applications, the 2065 Series can also be used to connect sensors and other devices, providing an alternative to manual wire soldering in compact spaces.
Solid conductors can be terminated in both variants using WAGO’s Push-in CAGE CLAMP technology simply by pushing them into the unit. Fine-stranded conductors can be terminated in the 2065 Series by using an operating tool to open the clamping unit, and removing it to secure the conductor.
