T14-1 to XA88 Transition Summary

Home // T14-1 to XA88 Transition Summary

A comparison of the T14-1 and XA88 showing the main features for transition.

  • Which T14-1 version is equivalent to my XA88 model?
XA88 versionEquivalent T14-1 version
T14-1LW or T14-1LH*

T14-1UW or T14-1 UH

‘L’ versions operate on 24 to 36 V DC nominal supply
‘H’ versions operate on 72 to 110 V DC nominal supply

In both cases, the normal voltage variations of EN50155:2017 are supported.

*For use on buses and similar vehicles, the XA88-24DC-2 is replaced by the T14-1LB which carries ECE‑R10 and other relevant compliances – please see T14-1LB data sheet (available on request).

  • Which connector should I choose?

The T14-1 range has different connectors from the XA88’s MIL-C-5015 circular connectors. There is now a choice:

Wago 769 (‘W’ versions): robust, easy-to-wire, spring clamp contacts, strong connector retention, cable strain relief plates available, lower cost

Harting HAN-3D (‘H’ versions): industrial, sealed, strong lever-latching connectors, with gold-plated crimp contacts, but at higher cost than the Wago 769.

  • Physical and mounting details differ but are similar:
