Wieland Electric has introduced two additions to its RST Classic series: 6-pole and 7-pole models. As industry and building technologies continue to evolve through diverse applications, there are increasingly greater demands for fast and safe electrical installations for high-load applications. Wieland Electric is responsive to this demand by expanding its RST Classic portfolio to accommodate these needs. The new RST20i6 (6-pole) and RST20i7 (7-pole) connectors further extend the versatility of electrical installations through increased functions, quick and safe assembly, and reliable performance under the toughest of environments thanks to an elevated Type 6P protection rating. For outdoor applications, these new connectors are also optionally available with a fully integrated barrier seal to present moisture from spreading along the cable system.
Available in both screw and crimp fitting options, RST20i6 and RST20i7 components are capable of managing loads of up to 20A* and support conductors up to 2.5 mm². The RST20i6 (6-pole) connector was developed specifically for dimmable emergency light applications, a key element in industrial safety. The RST20i7 (7-pole) connector was developed as an ideal solution for combining polyphase systems with signals. Three codings ensure both mechanical and color-based differentiation between circuits, with an added safety feature that distinguishes between grounded and ungrounded wires. Mains and extra-low voltages (SELV) can be connected via internal insulation coordination inside a connector housing, with compact connectors allowing for high modularity and adaptability for dynamic application requirements. These models are provided in both straight or angular versions, as well as additional options compatible with all common cable diameters, including connectors with two cable inputs for through-wiring applications.
