TE Connectivity's (TE) Buchanan WireMate Two-Piece Poke-In Connectors provide designers with a three-directional solution for wall mounting a device while improving the overall installation experience for the novice installer. Wires are routed through an opening in the wall to TE's WireMate Connector mounted on a wall plate. The wires are stripped of insulation and easily poked into the terminal block device, providing a reliable termination without the need for tooling. Wire extracting is also easy, with simple levers to release individual wires. The mating header is a surface mount attached to the PCB in the device to be mounted on the wall. The two-piece combination allows wall mounting of a device in three different directions: into the wall, along the wall, and in a twist or rotating motion.
