A cross between a conventional board-mount wire connector and a terminal block, the Buchanan vertical screwless wire connector provides an alternative to soldered, wire-to-board terminations.

The product is offered in a six-position configuration and is spaced on 3.5mm staggered centerlines. It can be used in lighting products, garage door openers, HVAC controls, security systems, vending machines, and gaming products.

An 18AWG solid or tinned stranded wire may be used with the Buchanan for poke-in termination. The contacts may be reterminated up to five times, and carry a rating of 2A, 600Vac.

The Buchanan connector features kinked contact legs to provide PCB retention before and during wave soldering. Individual wire retention is rated at five pounds. The housing is molded from UL 94V-0 rated PBT, with a copper alloy bearing contact material and a tin-lead plating over nickel.
