Connection Connector for All Cable Types: WAGO’s 221 Series!
Compact connection connector for all cable types of WAGO’s 221 Series saves 40% more space than its previous version.
Every millimeter is important in electrical installations. Especially in building automation, the integration of more and more functions, such as electric curtains, door and entrance controllers, intercom, speakers or lighting, becomes important. This not only increases the wiring required, but also reduces the usable space and, on the other hand, separate distribution boxes are increasingly used. Instead, electrical connections are made in device junction boxes (junction boxes) with a maximum of half the wiring space.
40% Smaller | New 221
With the new 221 series compact connector family, WAGO paves the way for electrical installers to implement a faster, simpler, more reliable and safer installation for the most used cable types such as single-core, multi-core and thin multi-wire. Compared to its previous tried and tested predecessor (222 series), this new connector takes up 40% less space due to its reduced dimensions. This makes it possible to connect even in the smallest, hardest to access areas. With the allowable 32 A rated current and 450 V rated voltage, the 221 series is well suited for use in 230 V / 400 power systems.
The transparent casing of the connector now allows a clear view when the cables are not pushed far enough in or insulated more than the appropriate length. At the same time, the conical-mouth conductor entry slot ensures that the conductor is properly guided to the clamping point. Two easily accessible test slots, one on the cable entry side and the other opposite, provide easy test conditions, even when installed. The opening arms are now opened with considerably less force.
1011/5000The 221 series are available as 2, 3, and 5 wire connectors. It can safely connect 0.14 to 4 mm2 (AWG 26–12) thin stranded conductors and 0.2 to 4 mm2 (AWG 24–12) single-core and multi-core conductors safely. This meets a wide variety of applications, especially when different types of cable cross sections are used together. Typical applications in building automation include lighting, connection of curtain motors, and wiring of intercom systems and door and access control systems. Among other things, the 221 connector is well suited for the wiring of motors and pumps in industrial applications.
With approvals such as ENEC, UL, PSE / JET, CQC, GOST-R, new compact connectors are ready for use anywhere in the world from the very beginning. Thanks to its continuous operating temperature of 105 ° C, it is perfectly suitable for use in ambient temperatures up to 60 ° C, making it possible to use in applications such as the 221 series lighting systems.
