Connector Systems Bring Life to the PCB

Without the suitable components, a PCB is just a lifeless carrier of electronic elements with conductive tracks. Alongside other essential elements, it is the connector system that breathes life into a PCB (printed circuit board). Components often used include Wire-to-Wire (W-t-W) / Wire-to-Board (W-t-B) connections, which provide the important function of connecting two cables or connecting a cable to a PCB in order to guarantee the power supply and/or signal transmission.
With five new product ranges: 499, 570, 589, 5113 and 5265, W+P ensures the demand for the particularly small pitches of the friction lock W-t-W / W-t-B product family. The series are offered as male (on PCB/Wire) and female (on Wire) headers, female housings and contacts. These are deliverable starting at a pitch of just 1.0mm, in horizontal or vertical alignment and some equipped with locking.

Key Specifications:
The contact material consists of copper alloy
The insulator is made of thermoplastic according to UL94 V-0
Various finishes, designed for cable cross sections ranging from AWG 34 to AWG 22
The number of contacts varies between 2 and 50
