WAGO LUMI-NUTS(TM) Luminaire Disconnect Features Industry-Exclusive 20A Rating

Install fluorescent luminaires with less labor and fewer parts.

Aw 3182 Wago 20 A Lumi
WAGO Corporation’s 873-902 LUMI-NUTS™ luminaire disconnect combines the only 20A/600V line-side rating and daisy chaining capability (two conductors per pole) for class-leading installation flexibility. LUMI-NUTS™ is the only connector that can loop power from one disconnect to the next for quick and easy wiring of multiple ballasts or multiple fluorescent fixtures — eliminating additional splices, time and labor.

“The 20A line-side rating significantly outpaces competitive offerings, placing LUMI-NUTS™ in a class of its own in terms of safety and convenience,” said Cory Thiel, WAGO Interconnect Product Manager. “Exclusive daisy chaining, supported by a 20A rating, reduces labor and components necessary in code-compliant luminaire installations.”

Superior Safety in Compact and Robust Package

The LUMI-NUTS’ housing consists of flame retardant (UL94V-0) polyamide 6.6, and is completely touch-safe ─ whether mated or unmated. Joined by a robust, integral locking latch, both LUMI-NUTS’ mating halves are keyed to prevent mis-mating. Color-coding and on-unit inkjet markings provide easy pole identification to simplify wiring. LUMI-NUTS™ also provides the simplicity of PUSH WIRE® terminations; simply push in the prepared conductor for terminations that are maintenance-free, as well as vibration- and temperature-cycling resistant. The 873-902 LUMI-NUTS™ models can fit through a ½’’ knockout.
All LUMI-NUTS™ 2- and 3-pole variants meet NEC410.130 (G), CEC30-308 (4) and CSA/UL Standard 2459 for Insulated Multi-Pole Splicing Wire Connectors, ensuring safety for those servicing 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.

WAGO is the leader in spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Products: DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
