GERMANTOWN, WI ‚â€“ WAGO Corporation has added the 873-903 three-pole model to the 873 Series LUMI-NUTS‚â„¢ luminaire disconnect line. The 873-903 is a safe electrical disconnect for high-feature linear fluorescent fixtures that use a dimming circuit or the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) protocol.
LUMI-NUTS‚â„¢ meets NEC410.74 (G), CEC30-308 (4) and CSA/UL Standard 2459 for Insulated Multi-Pole Splicing Wire Connectors, ensuring safe service of linear fluorescent fixtures. Power input/line side accommodates AWG #18-12 solid and AWG #16-12 stranded conductors; ballast/load side accepts industry standard AWG #18 solid conductors.
The 873-903 provides a best-in-class rating of 6A/600V and utilizes a UL94V-0 flame-rated polyamide 6.6 housing for flame retardation. A touch-proof design ‚â€” whether mated or unmated ‚â€” eliminates need to disconnect power for service. An integrated locking latch prevents unintentional separation of the mating halves. The connectors are keyed for mis-mating protection and color-coded for simplified wiring. Mating halves carry on-unit markings to further reduce wiring errors.
LUMI-NUTS‚â„¢ connectors provide PUSH WIRE‚Â® terminations ‚â€” insert prepared conductor into unit. Terminations are maintenance-free, as well as vibration- and temperature-cycling resistant.
