Right Angled Connector for Important USB Application

Würth Elektronik extends its REDCUBE series with SMT WP-SMRA with screw threads

Würth Elektronik now offers new WP-SMRA Surface mount solderable wire-to-board and board-to-board connections for 90° assembly on front panels, housings, PCBs or cable connections. WP-SMRAs are high-current contacts mainly intended for automated assembly within the REDCUBE series. The version with M2 screw thread is aimed towards a special application: Combined with Würth Elektronik's type-C USB jacks, it accepts the screw-lock USB connectors used and valued for their more reliable connection in many industrial applications.

Connectors reliably secured with screws against inadvertent disconnection are making a comeback in industrial applications with the USB type-C connector. The M2 version of the WP-SMRA SMT-mountable connector from Würth Elektronik offers developers an easy-to-implement solution along with a reference design.

WP-SMRA is now available from stock without a minimum order quantity. Würth Elektronik provides developers free samples on request.
