W+P: High Current Connectorsystem with 9.0 mm pitch

Connectors are the least noticed parts of an end product. Mostly installed on a PCB, they are usually invisible except for the external connection to the power source and are often underestimated. An electronic device without connectors? Unthinkable!

Completely against the trend of ever smaller pitches and component heights, W+P offers a giant in 9.0mm pitch. It also has its buyers, in this case products from the embedded computing sector and the general current supply of peripheral devices.

Rohm: Impact of outbreak of new Coronavirus in our Philippines factory

We would like to use this opportunity to give an update on the effects of the new Coronavirus on the production status of our Philippines factory.
As a result of the new coronavirus tests at our Philippines factory on July 9, the results showed positive for multiple employees.

W+P: Connectors with circumferential housing shielding

W+P offers shielded connectors as protection against unwanted electromagnetic influences, in order to meet the interference-free signal and current supply requirements of the industry.

The shielding of the series 5692 is achieved by a circumferential metallic housing made of steel, which is connected with a clip to the insulator of the pin header. This shielding plate, which is already integrated, is soldered directly to the PCB and its design satisfies the requirement for the protection of surrounding areas. This means that sensitive signals can be transmitted with low interference and also received just as clearly.

W+P: High-Speed Board-to-Board Connectors for Data Rates of up to 28 GB/s

These are used whenever printed circuit boards need to be stacked compactly in restricted spaces. We are talking about B-t-B (Board-to-Board) connectors which, thanks to their low component height, ensure that the PCB distance is negligible. On account of the fact that, in line with the prevailing trend, the increase in the data rate is almost in direct proportion to the decrease in the housing size, W+P’s new B-t-B connectors also offer an optimal solution in this regard.

ROHM: Impact of new Coronavirus spreading on production and shipment at our factories worldwide

We would like to use this opportunity to give an update on the effects of the new Coronavirus on the production statuses of our factories around the world.

We will continue to do our utmost to resume operations as soon as possible, while paying close attention to the effects of the new Coronavirus and the activities of the national authorities. We sincerely ask for your understanding.

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.
