WIELAND ELECTRIC OFFERS NEW PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD CONNECTORS WITH DIRECT PLUG-IN TECHNOLOGY
WIECON® 8105 DST ENABLES DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD WITHOUT ANY SOLDERING
For Hannover Messe 2019, Wieland has expanded its portfolio of printed circuit board connectors with a new, convenient, and space-saving model for establishing contact with printed circuit boards. The wiecon® 8105 DST has a direct plug-in design and can be plugged straight into the board without having to solder a pin header. This saves the user not only time during assembly but also costs, as only one component is required. The new connectors are ideal for use in heating, building, or machine controllers as well as in domestic appliances.
As the designs of control units in heating and mechanical engineering as well as in building technology and services are becoming increasingly compact, space-saving solutions are needed for the connection technology. Wieland is responding to this with the new wiecon® 8105 DST printed circuit board connector, which enables direct contact with the printed circuit board without any soldering. The direct plug-in technology saves a lot of space, offers reliable contact, and helps to save time and costs as there is no need for a pin header or multipoint plug.
The new printed circuit board connector can be arranged in a grid so there is no loss of poles with arrangement side by side. In addition, there is no need for a lead-in chamfer on the board, making it more favorable. The wire guard prevents mismating. Interchangeable inserts for codings also offer numerous coding options. The reliable clamping yoke connection technology also allows multi-core conductors to be connected. The wiecon® 8105 DST is available in 15 different colors, specifically using “no flame” plastics compliant with DIN EN 60335-1. The special contact geometry makes it possible to use boards with 1.4 to 1.8 millimeters, which means that the new connector can be used for a very broad range of applications.
