224-101 Wago Lighting Connector 2.5mm2
Terminating Aluminum Conductors
WAGO spring clamp terminal blocks are suitable for solid aluminum conductors up to 4 mm2/12 AWG if WAGO “Alu-Plus” Contact Paste is used for termination.
“Alu-Plus” Contact Paste Advantages:
Automatically destroys the oxide film during clamping.
Prevents fresh oxidation at the clamping point.
Prevents electrolytic corrosion between aluminum and copper conductors (in the same terminal block). Provides long-term protection against corrosion.
Using terminal blocks with PUSH WIRE® Spring Pressure Connection Technology, aluminum conductors must first be cleaned with a blade and then immediately be inserted into the clamping units filled with “Alu-Plus” Contact Paste.
It is also possible to apply WAGO “Alu-Plus” additionally on the whole surface of the aluminum conductor before termination.
Please note that the nominal currents must be adapted to the reduced conductivity of the aluminum conductors:
2.5 mm2 (14 AWG) = 16 A
4 mm2 (12 AWG) = 22 A
