Wire-to-Board IDC connectors in two pitches

With the W-t-B IDC series 601 and 602, W+P presents the option of additionally processing larger cable cross-sections. This facilitates faster line connection. The connectors themselves can be installed in the field with ease using a hand tool.

W+P: Tailored cable assembly

When it comes to high quality, reliable and quickly realisable cable assemblies, W+P supports you as a certified full-range supplier with a broad spectrum of diverse technology. Alongside dependable standard cable assembly, W+P clearly demonstrates expertise in the field of tailored solutions.

W+P: Low Profile Compact Connectors

Wide-ranging requirements, but too few solutions in small modular sizes? This changes with the SMT Series 5265 from W+P. It offers a wire-to-board connection in crimp friction- lock technology suitable for both classic W-t-B applications and LED areas.

W+P: Wire-to-Board connector as direct contact

W+P offers a range of Wire-to-Board connectors as board-in solutions, which establish a permanent and simultaneously secure connection in the PCB through direct soldering into the PCB. For stabilisation on the PCB, all contacts are equipped with an additional retention function, in order to ease processing.

Compact Board-to-Board solutions in 1.27mm pitch

As such, the SMT male and female headers of the series 9017 to 9020 offer a diverse range of possible PCB combinations: The vertical and horizontal connection of PCBs and additionally a mixture of a vertical and horizontal variant is also possible, which establishes a right-angled arrangement. Added lateral solder clips ensure secure fastening to the PCB.

W+P: 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).

W+P 5940 Series: Direct connection for high currents

The product portfolio has been expanded with an SMT terminal as a single contact, which ensures a direct connection with simple handling, since additional soldering is not required.
The new 5940 series offers an interface as a detachable connection on LED PCBs and for industrial applications.

W+P expanded Wire-to-Board Connector Product Line

The expanded spectrum includes a broad range of wire-to-board connection solutions as crimp versions for most applications. This includes pin and female headers, pin and female housings and contacts and they are on offer as THT or SMT variants.

SMT: ZIF connector with folding lock in rear

ZIF connectors (Zero Insertion Force) are able to be used everywhere, where connecting without tools and high retaining forces are required in limited spaces.
W+P offers zero force connectors with its 5566 and 5577 series. Their low pitch of 0.5 and 1.0mm and the low design height of 1.2 and 2.0mm are notable.

3M: HF447 - World's first flat ribbon cable with UL-LSHF certification

It is designed for internal wiring applications and the ideal choice wherever the requirements for fire protection in public buildings are more stringent. The risks associated with smoke and corrosive gases during a fire event will be reduced.

3M: 7700 Series - flat cable - design re-defined

Increased miniaturization with a simultaneous increase in performance is the defining trend in electronics development, fueling the demand for devices that are ever faster, more compact and rich on features. The new 3M Flat, Controlled Impedance Cable, 7700 Series, meets exactly these needs.

Combined power/signal mix series

Connectors in mixed technology offer an enormous advantage: They transmit power and control signals together in only one connector. Therefore, the result is space-saving and simultaneously efficient components.
W+P has a comprehensive program of mixed technology series, focused on board-to-board connectors, which includes pin headers and female headers for the PCB.

Pancon: Connector system for printed circuit boards and ribbon cables

Complete range of PCB connectors also for use with ribbon cable

Compatible with other manufacturers

High contact reliability due to double-leg contact

The contact overlapping of 2.5mm guarantees a secure contacting

SMT miniature tactile switch from W+P: extremely small!

W+P is expanding the product line of miniature tactile switches for surface mounting to a series with different purchase options. Due to their low profile, the tactile switches make room on the PCB with their extremely small dimensions and are therefore ideally suited for compact input units such as industrial controllers, etc.

Schaltbau: New double-switch option for various switch series

The double-switch versions allow simplified implementation in applications needing a dualactuation safety concept, either as a redundancy option or for the parallel switching of two functions. Up to now, the customer had to actuate both switches separately. 

SMT-IDC connector from W+P with 4 mm pitch

The combination of the SMT-IDC with 4 mm pitch is exceptional and absolutely ingenious for use in the LED sector: cables can simply be plugged in without stripping and, using insulation displacement contact technology, a gas-tight connection is formed, which can even be cast if necessary.

Insulation foil for snap-action switches

The insulation foil is aimed at applications with higher operational voltages or to reduce the risk of voltage flashover across terminals, and offers customers a ready-made solution in Schaltbau quality. The insulation foil is recommended when mounting the switches on a conductive surface, or when ganging several switches.
