Push-in wire connectors HelaCon – for professional cable connections
Push-in wire connectors in all variations: for every area of electrical installation
The range of HelaCon push-in wire connectors is used for fast, easy and reliable termination and distribution of cable and conductings in electrical housing applications. They may be used within a typical range of housing tension up to 450 volts. A huge variety of input poles allows high flexibility in application depending on the number of conductors and available space.
Cross-sections of up to 2,5 mm² can conveniently be processed and allow the use of thicker ladders when a voltage drop occurs. The way of cable distribution and branch junctionsvaries from country to country due to the different types of wires, diameters, colours, junction boxes and mounting systems in use.
How to connect wire connectors?
The newly developed double-head spring of our HelaCon Plus Mini connection terminal makes it particularly easy for you, as the push-in wire can be inserted into the terminal with considerably less effort – especially practical in hard-to-reach areas or when working overhead. Thanks to the transparent housing, you can also check at a glance whether the wire is correctly seated. See how easy it works in this video.
No matter how distinct the individual requirements are – the HelaCon wire connector series offers the best solution for every task – worldwide. Different colour codes help to easily differentiate the sizes of the push-in wire connectors. All cable entries are in a row on one side. A separate power test entry on the front guarantees safety during application, installation and maintenance. Any conductor with cross-sections between 0.5 and 2.5 mm² can be used at the same time, without impact on the adjacent junction.
Being compact in size the push-in wire connectors HelaCon fit perfectly in tight spaces and can generally be used in all kinds of junction boxes either on-wall or flush-mounted.

How to use wire connectors HelaCon Easy
• Make sure that power is turned off before installation
• Use bulk copper cables only
• Strip them off approximately 11 mm
• Insert them completely into the wiring connector
• Use voltmeter via separate test entry
• To change or correct a wire, hold and twist it alternatively left and right while pulling the wire connector

Wire terminal HelaCon Lux
A typical application is lighting system, where the massive ladder from concealed cabling has to be connected to a flexible conductor for lighting. The 2/1 variant allows the looping through of the supply lines for additional devices.
The conductor on the output/lighting side can easily be inserted by pressing the locking mechanism and can be released in the same way at any time.
The lighting side can carry any kind of conductor and makes HelaCon Lux coupling clamps also useful to connect devices that carry flexible connecting cables like control devices e.g. for blinds, fans and other drives.
Push-in wire connectors HelaCon Lux: features & benefits
• Best suitable to connect solid with flexible wire
• Combines push-in connector with lock/unlock spring mechanism
• For fine-stranded conductors at lighting input
• Use with typical voltage current of 450 V / 24 A
• Either one or two inputs for massive conductor
• Very flexible application
• Low insertion force
• Tool-free application for easy, time-saving, safe connection
• Especially for overhead work and when wires are difficult to access

Advantages of connectors HelaCon Plus Mini
Push-in wire connectors: working with clear visibility
Screwless connectors in the field of house installations are used countless times every day. Although this is routine work, it requires a lot of diligence.
A tight and secure fitting is indispensable for a failure-free, long-life operation. Careless work may otherwise result in damage and overheating, in the worst case causing a hazardous situation like a fire.
The transparent housing of the new HelaCon Plus Mini wire connector series allows a fast and easy optical control of whether the conductor fits to the catch. This is a non-negligible safety factor and will expedite acceptance tests of the complete electrical installation.
Wire connectors: Different wire types and cross-sections
The low push forces due to the latest double spring technology enables the use of single- and multicore conductings.
The free fixing of each double spring allows the concurrent use of various conductor cross-sections between 0.5 and 2.5 mm² within one connector without impact on the adjacent link.
Please note that HelaCon Plus Mini is not designed for fine-stranded wires.
FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
What is a push-in wire connector?
A push-in wire connector is used to connect wires in a safe and secure way. Modern wire connectors, such as the HelaCon range, have built-in springs. These are designed to make it easier to insert the conductor into the terminal (which is particularly beneficial when using stranded conductors), while keeping the conductor securely in place in the terminal. With a crown clamp, on the other hand, the conductor has to be screwed in manually, which increases the risk of faulty connections and overheating. Double spring terminal blocks ensure a more user-friendly, efficient and reliable installation process.
How do you open a push-in wire connector?
A push-in connector is designed for long-term installations where the stripped wireend is quickly and easily inserted into the connector for a secure and durable connection. Openable connectors, like HelaCon Releasable, are designed for maintenance work and pre-installation.
Why should a push-in wire connector be transparent?
HellermannTyton wire connectors have a transparent terminal housing to make it possible to visually check that the conductor is installed correctly.
What does the colour of a push-in wire connector mean?
Push-in wire connectors are supplied in different transparent colours according to the number of conductiors that can be connected. HelaCon Plus Mini terminal blocks are available in 6 different colours and sizes:
- Yellow for 2 conductors
- Orange for 3 conductors
- Clear for 4 conductors
- Blue for 5 conductors
- Violet for 6 conductors
- Black for 8 conductors
