The original WAGO CAGE CLAMP (r) connection for quick,
vibration-resistant, maintenance-free clamping connections from 0.08
square meters to 35 square meters.
The WAGO front-entry rail-mounted terminal blocks guarantee
vibration-resistant, maintenance-free clamping connections in a tram.
The operating conditions place heavy demands on the connection
technique in rail traffic. In addition to constantly changing
climatic conditions, especially in equipment boxes underneath the
vehicle chassis, the movement of the vehicle subjects connections to
constant vibrations across a broad frequency range as well as a wide
variety of acceleration forces. This applies, to a similar extent, to
electrical connections in switchgear cabinets for points or in signal
In 1977 the WAGO CAGE CLAMP(r) connection system has been
introduced in rail-mounted terminal blocks and since 1978 it's been
proving its worth under such operating conditions. The freedom from
maintenance of this connection system, resulting from its immunity to
vibration, means high efficiency of the electrical and electronic
systems that are used in worldwide rail traffic, hence explaining the
successful use of WAGO terminal blocks and connectors with CAGE
Rail-mounted terminal blocks with front-entry wiring
WAGO rail-mounted terminal blocks with front-entry wiring are
available with 2-, 3-, or 4-conductor connection, each having one
CAGE CLAMP(r) connection per conductor. That way,
* the safety concept "1 conductor per clamping unit" is
* commoning of potential can be achieved without the use of
jumpers and without the need for additional terminal blocks
* additional clamping units for re-wiring are available without
having to modify the wiring.
WAGO rail-mounted terminal blocks with CAGE CLAMP(r) connection
are available for cross sections up to 35 square meters / AWG 2.
Pre-wiring whole functional units, connecting them with one
another, testing and replacing them quickly all requires intelligent,
flexible connection techniques. This applies in railway traffic too.
The new WAGO X-COM-SYSTEM, a modular, rail-mounted connector system,
meets all these requirements. It consists of receptacle terminal
blocks, mounting onto carrier DIN rails in the same way as
rail-mounted terminal blocks, and plug-in modular female plugs, and
it is protected against accidental contact.
The coding feature makes is possible to protect female plugs
against mismating even with connector groups having the same number
Receptacle terminal blocks and female plugs can be commoned with
plug-in jumper systems protected against accidental contact.
You can find a selection of worldwide applications in vehicles and
trackside devices in the WAGO booklet "Traffic Engineering RVT 2.0".
