WINSTA® MINI – PCB Connectors
With the new WINSTA® MINI line of pluggable connectors, component manufacturers can easily integrate their products into pluggable building installations. Previously, component manufacturers were faced with the task of customizing their housings to fit pluggable connectors, while wiring was performed manually. Now, the new WINSTA® MINI line allows connectors to be directly soldered to the PCB, streamlining the process and making it more economical.
The extremely low-profile connectors feature a nominal current of 16 A and a pole pitch of 4.4 mm. WAGO's WINSTA® MINI pluggable PCB connectors are available in 2- and 3-pin versions rated to 250 V, and 4- and 5-pin versions rated to 400 V. Both plugs and sockets are available in straight and angled versions. This creates new possibilities for incorporating a wide variety of functions into a building via pluggable connections (e.g., air-conditioning, ventilation, security and communication systems, as well as control systems for pumps, lighting or blinds).
In order to maintain a high level of safety, even with an increasing number of different electrical circuits, the pluggable connectors are available with several mechanical coding options: Coding A (black, white) for 230 V networks, Coding B (gray, light green, pink) for customized pin assignment, Coding I (blue) for dimming function (e.g., with DALI lights).
