Item no. 2273-208

COMPACT splicing connector; for solid conductors; max. 2.5 mm²; 8-conductor; transparent housing; light gray cover; Surrounding air temperature: max 60°C (T60); 2,50 mm2; transparent


  • Convenient wiring via extremely compact design
  • Push-in termination of up to eight solid conductors
  • Cross section range: 0.5 … 2.5 mm² (18 … 14 AWG)
  • Any combination of conductor sizes is possible
  • PUSH WIRE® connection terminates solid (“s”) copper conductors

Terminating Aluminum Conductors
WAGO spring clamp terminal blocks are suitable for solid aluminum conductors up to 4 mm²/12 AWG if WAGO “Alu-Plus” Contact Paste is used for termination.

“Alu-Plus” Contact Paste Advantages:
  • Automatically destroys the oxide film during clamping.
  • Prevents fresh oxidation at the clamping point.
  • Prevents electrolytic corrosion between aluminum and copper conductors (in the same terminal block).
  • Provides long-term protection against corrosion.

Using terminal blocks with PUSH WIRE® Spring Pressure Connection Technology, aluminum conductors must first be cleaned with a blade and then immediately be inserted into the clamping units filled with “Alu-Plus” Contact Paste.

It is also possible to apply WAGO “Alu-Plus” additionally on the whole surface of the aluminum conductor before termination.

Please note that the nominal currents must be adapted to the reduced conductivity of the aluminum conductors:
2.5 mm² (14 AWG) = 16 A
4 mm² (12 AWG) = 22 A
Safety information 1:
In grounded power lines
