June 4, 2018 — Weidmuller announced the expansion of their line of OMNIMATE Power Printed Circuit Board (PCB) terminals with the OMNIMATE Power LUF and LUFS 10.00. Both terminal designs feature Weidmuller’s PUSH IN connection system for wiring solid, stranded or ferruled wires from 18...6AWG to help potential damage to circuit boards. Select versions of these Weidmuller terminals are UL/CSA rated for use up to 61A and 600V according to UL1059, meeting the requirements for power applications that include drive controllers and photovoltaic converters.
The OMNIMATE Power LUF and LUFS 10.00 PCB terminals offer options from clamping activation to wire insertion orientation. The LUF 90-degree orientation terminal is available in 1- to 12-pole versions with a tool free actuating lever above each clamp for clamp opening. The LUFS is available in both 90- and 180-degree orientation in 1-pole to 12-pole versions, and feature a screwdriver push button to open each clamp. When the lever or button is released, the clamp automatically closes on the cable to ensure a reliable connection. Diagnostic testing points and a redundant pin design for increased stability on the PCB eliminate the need for an additional fixing flange and increase system integrity.
This rating applies to terminal versions with 2 or 3 pins in alternating positions per pole. These provide the creepage distances required to maintain a higher amp rating. OMNIMATE Power LUF and LUFS terminals with 4 or 6 pins in alignment per pole are rated for up to 58A and 300V due to reduced clearage distance between poles. Specific ratings for the commercial (B), general industrial (C) and industrial device groups (D) are provided in Weidmuller supporting materials to assist customers in the product specification and selection process.
