Robust and Reliable Power Supply Elements for Printed Circuit Boards

Various Powerelements on red background with tech talk speech bubble.

We invented the Original Powerelements three and a half decades ago. Since then, we have been constantly developing them further and, with more than 2,000 variants, have the largest Powerelement portfolio in the world. Robust, reliable and used millions of times, they impress with their excellent electrical and mechanical properties as well as flexible application options - from power supply to electrical and mechanical connections.

Powerelements from Würth Elektronik ICS impress with a high current carrying capacity and are available for the following manufacturing processes:
