For more than 60 years WAGO has been a leading pioneer in innovative connection systems through electrical interconnections, automation and interface electronic technologies. It is no wonder that their 221 Series Splicing Connectors are a winning product within multiple electrical interconnection sectors.

With WAGO’s simple, ergonomic design and global approvals, they created a series of compact splicing connectors for all conductor types. All you have to do is pull the lever up, insert a conductor and push the lever back down.

These connectors can be used in a variety of applications; from intercom system wiring, to electrical ovens and you will be able to benefit from the following:

  • Connect all conductor types without preparing them
  • Combine any conductor types and sizes
  • Easy-to-use operating lever for tool-free terminations
  • High current carrying capacity of up to 32 A
  • Perfect for distribution applications thanks to the mounting carrier

But these connectors can do even more!

Two Sizes for All Conductor Types

Quickly and easily connect all conductor types of different cross sections using two-, three-, and five-wire connectors. The new connectors accommodate fine-stranded conductors from 0.14 to 4 mm², as well as solid and stranded conductors from 0.2 to 4 mm². With the new 6 mm² variant, you can connect all conductor types, with cross sections from 0.5 to 6 mm².

Extremely Easy to Use

You can open WAGO’s splicing connectors easily and quickly. Opening the levers on the 221 Series takes very little effort. This means you can connect conductors quickly, and without any tools! While you are connecting the conductor, recessed handles on the sides ensure an easy, secure grip on the connector.

Two Test Slots

The new 221 Series Splicing Connectors allows you to test the voltage from two different sides, even when they are installed. The connectors have two test slots right where the WAGO imprint appears; one in the conductor entry direction and one on the opposite side. This accessibility provides extremely convenient testing conditions, even after installation, within a wide range of applications. All connector variants also provide a secure contact for all standard test probes.

The 221 Series Conquers the Distribution Cabinet

Mounting carriers are available for every 221 Series Splicing Connector, whether the two-, three- or five-wire model. They can be mounted vertically as well as horizontally. Secure the carrier by snapping it onto the DIN-rail, or with screws on smooth surfaces. The flexible mounting clamps simplify both connector insertion and removal. Conductors can be conveniently connected and removed before or after inserting a connector into the carrier. One test slot is always accessible, ensuring compliance with VDE standards.
