WAGO LEVER-NUTS(TM) Compact Connectors Offers Mounting System

GERMANTOWN, WI - August 2008 - WAGO Corporation has expanded the 222 Series LEVER-NUTS(TM) compact splicing connector family with three components for multiple mounting and strain relief configurations. The mounting carrier (222-500), strain relief plate (222-505) and angled DIN-rail adapter (222-510) support LEVER-NUTS(TM) in applications where fixed mounting and/or strain relief are required.

"The new mounting and fixing components open LEVER-NUTS(TM) to applications requiring additional conductor support and identification, such as those in industrial cabinets," said Cory Thiel, WAGO Product Manager - Interconnect. "This flexibility supplies a wide variety of secure mounting configurations including: DIN-rail or chassis-mount, horizontal or vertical positions, and with or without additional strain relief."

Compact carrier dimensions and the simplicity of LEVER-NUTS(TM) lift-and-lock terminations provide a quick and cost-effective alternative to traditional fixed wire terminations. The system is ideal for fixed wire terminations in applications where the options and ratings of rail-mounted terminal blocks are not required or applicable.

222-500 Mounting Carrier
The 222-500 holds four 2-wire, three 3-wire or two 5-wire LEVER-NUTS(TM) connectors. Designed for vertical snap-on DIN-rail mounting, or panel mounting in either vertical or horizontal orientation via screws, the 222-500 carrier also features molded-in terminal marking or optional self-adhesive marking strips. Strain relief tabs and cable ties arrange and secure conductors. Connector end stops secure the LEVER-NUTS(TM) in the carrier; the LEVER-NUTS(TM) test ports are accessible through the 222-500's carrier slots.

222-505 Strain Relief Plate
The 222-505 affixes to the 222-500 mounting carrier, adding four additional strain relief points. The combined unit can then be snapped onto DIN-rail for vertical orientation, or it can be mounted on flat surfaces via screws either horizontally or vertically.

222-510 Angled DIN-rail Adapter
The 222-510 provides horizontal DIN-rail mounting for carriers in the 222 LEVER-NUTS(TM), 773 WALL-NUTS(TM) and 273 Series PUSH WIRE® connector families. The right-angled adapter offers a snap-fit to the appropriate carrier and snap-in, DIN-rail mounting.
