WAGO Introduces IPx8 Protected Gelbox

Condensation, heavy precipitation, powerful water jets: When moisture meets electricity, a short circuit can happen quickly. However, casting compound has proven itself as reliable protection. With Gelbox, WAGO clears a path to reliably achieving IPX8 levels of moisture protection in an easier and faster way.
Open the Box, Insert the Connector, Close the Box

"Ready for instant deployment, re-accessible and suitable for unlimited storage – these benefits distinguish the WAGO Gelbox when it comes to protecting WAGO Splicing Connectors from mois-ture and humidity, such as that found outdoors," summarizes WAGO Product Manager Sebastian Heemeier. Installation is fast and easy, "Simply open the box, insert the connectors, close the box," he explains.

Cellpack-Quality Gel – Silicone- and Label-free

The polyurethane gel used is silicone-free. "This makes the WAGO Gelbox ready to use in any branch of industry – even those where varnishes, paints and other sensitive products are used," explains Heemeier. In addition, the gel has already reacted and is therefore label-free. It is availa-ble in six sizes, can be used in a wide variety of low- and extra-low voltage applications and is compatible with both WAGO's 221 Series COMPACT Splicing Connectors and 2273 Series COMPACT PUSH WIRE® Connectors.

WAGO, the Minden-based interconnection technology specialist, co-developed the Gelbox with Cellpack – the leading experts in moisture protection. "In the field of casting compound, Cellpack represents the pinnacle of quality, just as does WAGO does in the field of interconnection tech-nology." "Therefore, we are pleased that we were able to win this well-known manufacturer as a development partner," says WAGO Product Manager Sebastian Heemeier.
