Connection SystemsAs early as 1951, WAGO put into practice the idea of using spring pressure instead of screws to connect electrical conductors.
We are also the pioneer in spring clamp systems for electrical engineering and electonics. Our safety philosophy is at the heart of all our designs:
Vibration-proof and maintenance-free connections, independent of the skill of the operator.
The CAGE CLAMP® is the internationally known trademark of the cage clamp spring pressure connection system which was first introduced in 1977.
It is a universal clamping system for solid, stranded and fine-stranded conductors with rated cross sections from AWG 28 to 2 (0.08 mm² to 35 mm²).
The CAGE CLAMP® S connection takes up a special position in the family of spring pressure clamping systems. This connection unites the advantages of the push-wire connection and the benefits of the cage clamp connection technology.
As the name implies, the CAGE CLAMP® Compact is a compact variation of the CAGE CLAMP® connection. It is suitable for solid, stranded and fine-stranded conductors with cross sections up to AWG 12 (4 mm²).
The extremely small variation of the CAGE CLAMP® connection. The conductor is accommodated in the spring which is even more space saving. Thus, the CAGE CLAMP® Super Compact allows for increasingly smaller products.
Push-wire connections are mostly used for the wiring of solid conductors with cross sections of 0.5 mm² to 4 mm ². Push-wire connection systems make use of the stiffness of the conductor in order to overpower the clamping force of the clamping spring.
The leaf spring connection is based on the prototype of spring clamp systems. It is widely used in many different variations and in many different products.
The POWER CLAMP connection is a clamping system with a helical or compression spring.
The FIT CLAMP connection is a clamping system with IDC connection technology. It is the fastest way to connect a wire - connecting without stripping! An especially economical solution for factory wiring, for example in the lighting industry.
