The end of the screw could be near for panel builders
Wago has released a white paper, ‘Going screwless – Why the end of the screw could be near for panel builders’ looking at the lifecycle cost, installation and performance advantages of screwless conductor connection technology when compared with traditionally used screw connection in terminals.
With estimates demonstrating that poor connections within terminal blocks account for almost half of all system failures, the paper outlines how panel builders and OEMs can achieve tangible benefit in areas such as:
Clive Humphrey, product manager for interconnection at Wago, comments: “Switching to screwless conductor connection technology makes real business sense for the panel building and OEM sector.
“Not only does it provide a proven, reliable and simple conductor connection, it eliminates ongoing maintenance by removing the need to continually recheck if connections have loosened over time. It also vastly reduces the wiring time required in installations, with studies showing that screwless technology was up to 264% quicker to install when compared with screw clamp technology.
“Our white paper serves as an easy reference point for those interested in making the switch to screwless, setting out the many advantages it offers.”
