Amphenol introduces WTB extension with right angle mating pin option

Wire to board (WTB) connectors from Amphenol have been extended, with a right angle mating pin option in both the 2.4 and 3.6mm board level products. Amphenol has also added 8.7 and 9.3 height over board (HOB) options to its vertical mating sockets.

These HOB WTB sockets allow mating with a right angle pin, vertical pin with latch or cable assembly. The WTB extension offers versatility when component placement decisions are critical, says the company. They can also be used when customers need to meet low profile, high density and high current requirements.

The WTB connector is used for transferring power from PSU/PDU to a motherboard or switch board in server, data centre, 5G, HPC and electrical device applications. Amphenol has also announced a two-way WTB connector with integrated positive and negative/ground poles for power connection into one plastic housing. This design helps save room and prevent short circuiting.

The connector can carry 70A current and withstand 500V DC. It includes Amphenol’s patented RADSOK technology to meet the increasing power requirements of PCBs and the need for a smaller board footprint.

The WTB connector is available in crimp with 10AWG, 8AWG and 6AWG cable harness. It has an operating temperature of -40 to +105 degrees C and can withstand up to 200 mating cycles. The connector is RoHS-compliant and available in UL-94 V0.
