Electrical connectors are a necessary part of the installation.

Electrical connectors connect low voltage current circuits. It is an electrical insulating product, and the connections are made by means of connection elements, such as terminals, located at the ends of the track. The electrical connectors can be single or multi-rotor, with the Wago type connectors mostly in the latter.

Features to consider when choosing the right connector are:

permissible ambient temperature

number of tracks

the possibility of closing the tracks

type of connection elements

connecting method

level of security

WAGO 221 series compact lever connectors

a product that displaced classic terminal block connectors

Wago is a company that offers cable and wire connector. Wago type connectors have gained their name from this manufacturer even though other companies are also involved in their production. On the market replaced the classic terminal block connectors. The terminal block connectors are characterised by being made of polypropylene, which makes them flexible and temperature resistant. We need a screwdriver for their installation, but we can forget about using any type of tool for the Wago connectors installation. Wago connectors are also distinguished by being reusable and appearing in many different models that make it possible to make different types of connections.

Application of Wago connectors

Wago connectors are one of the types of electrical connectors. They will be used in the assembly of electrical installations in residential, office and industrial buildings. They can be used, among others in junction boxes, installation boxes and in a wide range for connecting and fitting lighting. A wide range of available models makes it possible to fit the required fitting.

Characteristics and types of connectors in terms of application

Depending on the purpose, Wago connectors can be divided into several different types. Within each of them, the connectors have slightly different features that allow for maximum adaptability of their functionality to the type of installation. You can distinguish types such as:

Installation connectors - they are used in combination of single-stranded copper wires whose cross-section is between 0.75 and 6 mm2.

Lighting connectors - suitable for connecting the wiring of the installation and the lamp tube. They facilitate the connection of both wires, and the assembly does not require the use of tools.

Compact splicing connectors for all conductor types - suitable for any connection within the building electrical system. They allow the connection of copper wires from 0.08 to 4 mm2 with very easy assembly.

Categories of connectors by the manufacturer in terms of construction

The Wago connector manufacturer offers a variety of connectors, including the following:
