The PE editorial team look back at some of the products that drew the most interest from our readers over the past 12 months.
WAGO – 221 Series COMPACT Splicing Connectors
Suitable for all wire types, this new series of connectors is 40% smaller and even more user-friendly than its predecessor the 222 Series. The connectors are ideal for space-restricted applications. Consequently, installation is made much easier, while providing additional freedom for future expansions.
The transparent housing is another highlight. Now installers can clearly see if the wires are connected properly and stripped to the correct length. Furthermore the connectors feature two easily accessible test ports, one in the conductor entry direction and one on the opposite side, simplifying testing. The splicing connectors are also easy 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.
