Normal push-in wagos use a completely different design than backstabed receptacles. I believe it's called a cage clamp, which works much better than backstabbing.Seriously. What's the difference between this and a back stab?
Push in NoAny updated opinions on lever nuts?
We're considering changing a process but want to make sure we're not overlooking something.
Anyone seen them fail or have another reason to stay away from them?
If you purchased something and they came in a kit in lieu of wirenuts, how would you react?
I would kit lever nuts rather than wire nuts with a manufactured product without any hesitation.If you purchased something and they came in a kit in lieu of wirenuts, how would you react?
I have used them(lever nuts) on hundreds of motors and have not had one fail in the last 8-10 years(or so). Anything size 10awg and smaller I use them on motors (120 up to 480v motors). If you watch this video, the wire starts melting before the connector. Serious start up current is usually under one cycle and shouldn't affect them much, the next 2 cycles it goes down considerably. These things can handle some serious current. In the video you can see them handle a lot of current for a long period of time.Push in No
Lever nuts Ok
My only problem with lever nuts is I have seen them used on motors, and they are not rated for startup current.
For your business this don't matter, I think I would prefer lever nuts in your case.
