Wire Connectors HelaCon – for professional cable connections
Wire Connectors HelaCon – for a fast, easy and reliable connection
The range of HelaCon wire connectors are used for fast, easy and reliable connection and distribution of cable and conductors in electrical housing applications. They may be used within a typical range of housing voltage up to 450 volts. A huge variety of input poles allows high flexibility in application depending on the number of wire conductors and available space.
Cross-sections of up to 2.5 mm² can conveniently be processed and allow the use of thicker conductors when a voltage drop occurs.
The way of cable distribution and branch connections varies from country to country due to the different types of wires, diameters, colours, junction boxes and mounting systems in use.
No matter how distinct the individual requirements are – the HelaCon wire connectors offer the best solution for every task – worldwide.
Different colour codes help to easily differentiate the sizes of the wire connectors. All cable entries are in a row on one side. A separate voltage 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 connection.
Being compact in size HelaCon wire connectors, which are push-in, fit perfectly in tight spaces and can generally be used in all kinds of junction boxes either on-wall or flush-mounted.
The new HelaCon Mini push in wire connectors are 40% smaller offering a space saving design.

- Wire connectors are 40% smaller - offering a space saving
- Low insertion force - easy to use, saves time on installation
- For professional cable connections in electrical installations
- Easy access to voltage test entry and innovative port shape design
- Correct installation can be visually checked through the transparent housing of the wire connector
- Different colour codes for easy identification of size
- Allows different conductor for diameters in each entry
- Safe application, installation and maintenance
- Material: Polycarbonate (PC)
- Flammability: UL94VO
HCPM2 - 2 conductors Yellow in colour (YE)
HCPM3 - 3 conductors Orange in colour (OF)
HCPM4 - 4 conductors Transparent in colour (CL)
HCPM5 - 5 conductors Blue in colour (BU)
HCPM6 - 6 conductors Violet in colour (VT)
HCPM8 - 8 conductors Black in colour (BK)
The HelaCon push-in wire connectors are used for fast, easy and reliable connection and distribution of cable and conductors in the field of electrical installation.
The wire connectors can be used in all kinds of junction boxes either on-wall or flush-mounted.
HelaCon Plus Mini offers the best possible solution when convenient processing and maximum safety is required.
How to use
• Do not work under load
• Use only solid and stranded copper conductors
• Strip length 11 mm
• Push-in the full stripped length into the wire connector – check the connection through the transparent housing
• Use easy access voltage test entry at the rear side
• Disconnecting the wire: Hold the wire and twist the wire connector to the left and to the right

Wire Connectors HelaCon Lux
A typical application for this range of wire connectors is lighting installation, where the solid conductor 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 wire connectors also useful to connect devices that carry flexible connecting cables like control devices e.g. for blinds, fans and other drives.
Features and 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 solid conductor on installation side
- Very flexible application
- Tool-free application for easy, time-saving, safe connection
- Especially for overhead work and when wires are difficult to access
- Material: Polyamide (PA)
- Flammability: UL94 V2
Advantages of wire connectors HelaCon Plus Mini
Wire Connectors: Working with clear visibility
Screwless wire connectors in the field of house installations are used countless times every day. Although this is routine installation 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-in forces due to the latest double spring technology enables the use of single- and multicore conductors.
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 connection.
Please note that HelaCon Plus Mini is not designed for fine-stranded wires.
