Proven and perfected: WAGO's 221 Series COMPACT Splicing Connectors for all wire types set new standards. This new series is 40 % smaller and even more user-friendly than its successful predecessor, the 222 Series.
WAGO's new “superstars” for electrical installations allow solid, stranded and fine-stranded wires to be connected faster, in less space and more reliably: This is not just made possible by their compact design, which is 40 % smaller than the well-established 222 Series, but also by their transparent housing, easier handling and two test ports.
Splicing connectors, which considerably simplify work in practice
Due to their extremely small dimensions, WAGO's COMPACT Splicing Connectors are ideal for space-restricted applications. Installation is made much easier, while providing additional freedom for future expansions.
The transparent housing is another highlight: Now, you can clearly see if the wires are connected properly and stripped to the correct length. Furthermore, two easily accessible test ports, one in the conductor entry direction and one opposite of this, simplify testing — even when installed.
WAGO's new splicing connectors are also easier to use: The operating levers can now be opened and closed using noticeably less force. Lateral hollowed-out grips provide a firm hold on the 221 Series connectors in any situation.
Compact Splicing Connectors – All Conductor Types
The 2-, 3- and 5-wire connectors accommodate fine-stranded wires from 0.14 to 4 mm², as well as solid and stranded wires from 0.2 to 4 mm² (24–12 AWG). They are therefore ideally suited to connect different conductor sizes and types to each other. Tinned current bars ensure a permanent, gas-tight and secure wire connection.
Ratings up to 32 A/450 V and 105 °C maximum continuous operating temperature allow the 221 Series Splicing Connectors to be used at ambient temperatures up to 85 °C (T85), making them ideal for small and large loads. Furthermore, approvals like ENEC or UL allow them to be used in worldwide applications.
Your benefits with the splicing connectors
- Up to 40 % less space required than for the original WAGO 222
- Transparent housing for visual inspection shows that the wire is inserted properly and stripped to the correct length
- Easy termination via reduced operating force
- Any combination of wire types and sizes from 0.14 to 4 mm² (24–12 AWG) is possible
- Two test slots for all standard test probes
