Würth Elektronik designs connectors for single wire use

Single wire with blade receptacles can be accommodated by the WR-Fast connectors introduced by Würth Elektronik.

The series of THT-configurable male connectors are available in various blade designs, orientations and dimensions and are intended for current flows up to 16A and working voltages up to 300V, typically found in household appliances.

Straight or angled contacts are available for the common 6.3 mm blade receptacles but for the 2.8 mm version. The 2.8mm 2863-type WR-Fast connectors’ forked blades can accommodate both types of blade receptacles.

WR-Fast connectors operate at a wide operating temperature range of -30 to +120 degrees C. The connectors have passed glow wire testing according to IEC 60335-1 and meet flammability class UL94 V-0. They also have cULus approval.

The WR-Fast connector series is now available from stock without a minimum order quantity. Würth Elektronik also offers a design kit interface with free refill service.
