Winsta is the pluggable connection system from WAGO. The system has been particularly developed for building installations and offers connections for virtually any building requirement from power supply to bus lines.
The name WINSTA comes from words Wago and INSTAllation, but it seems that words WINning and STAr are more likely its base - the winning star among connectors : )
The system is built on Push-In Cage Clamp contact system (except for IDC variants), thus enabling maintenance-free connections (no screws). All connectors are coded to protect against mismating. The number of poles is 2-7. The big advantage of Winsta is the variety of cable assemblies in lengths from 1 to 8 meters in 1m steps.
The installation can be very fast and easy. And this is true not only for buildings but for other industries as well (ships, rail vehicles, industry factories).
The system consists of families WINSTA® MINI, MINI special, MIDI, MIDI special, MAXI, RD, KNX, and IDC. Each family has its own role within the building installation.
