Pull the lever up, insert a stripped conductor, and push lever back down - done. WAGO's 221 Series compact splicing connectors easily, quickly, and safely connect solid, stranded, and fine stranded wires ranging from 24-10 AWG (0.14-6mm²)
Quickly and easily connect all wire types of different sizes using 2-, 3-, and 5-wire connectors. The original model connectors accommodate all wire types ranging from 24 to 12 AWG. A 10 AWG model connects all conductor types ranging from 20-10 AWG.
Now you can perform testing from two different sides with the new 221 Series - even when it is installed.
The new 221 Series connectors have two test slots: One in the direction of wire insertion and one on the opposite side. These test slots ensure convenient testing, even when the connectors are installed and in varying installation environments. They also provide good contact for all standard test probes.
These splicing connectors can be opened very easily and quickly.
The operating levers of the 221 Series require minimal operating force to be opened, enabling fast connection of wires – without the use of any tools! The recessed grips on the side also prevent slipping and make it easier to hold the connector while inserting the wire.
Every millimeter counts in electrical installations: Building technology requires more and more functions integrated into ever smaller spaces.
This results in greater wiring effort required for power supply and control of the systems. Separate junction boxes are also used less and less. The 221 Series connectors make connection of all types of wires directly into the device junction boxes easy and fast. Applications include; electric blinds, door and gate controls and lighting systems.
The new 10 AWG model extends this application range to higher power installations including motors, air conditioners, and other large-consumption loads. They also ease connection of cabinet ground leads and 'home run' cables.
