Not Just For Lighting Connection: The 224 Series
High-performance lighting modules: WAGO’s 224 series is used everywhere where lights must be connected safely and quickly, However its potential is not yet exhausted. With approval in accordance with DIN EN 60998 as “Connecting devices for low-voltage circuits for household and similar purposes” it is well-suited for use everywhere in buildings where fine-stranded and single-stranded conductors must be connected – for example for fans and circulation pumps or blind and roller blind motors.
With a rated voltage of 400 V and rated current of 24 A, the 224 module series fulfills all requirements in the range of the maximum connectable conductor cross-section of 2.5 mm2. For use at continuous operating temperatures of up to 120°C, the standard and 2-wire modules are available in special versions with a black plastic housing. In addition, a special service module allows the bidirectional connection of fine-stranded and single-stranded conductors; it is needed, among other things, for electrical connections in lighting exhibitions and for the construction of “on-the-go” trade fair set-ups.
