WAGO's new 221 Series tool free lever operated connectors for electrical installations allow solid, stranded and fine-stranded wires to be connected faster, more reliably, while minimizing the amount of space in junction boxes: 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. 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 (12-24AWG) is possible Two test ports for all standard test probes
The transparent housing allows you to clearly see see if the wires are connected properly and stripped to the correct length. Furthermore, two easily accessible test ports, one in the wire entry direction and one opposite this, provide easy test conditions, even when installed.
WAGO's new 221 Series 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.
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. Up to 40 % smaller less space required than for the original WAGO 222.
