Würth Elektronik PowerBasket SMD plug-in power elements for SMT assembly

Wednesday, 08 May, 2019 | Supplied by: Wurth Electronics Australia Pty



Würth Elektronik ICS has released its first plug-in power elements for SMT assembly, the PowerBasket SMD series. They are designed to complement the company’s existing PowerBasket high-current contacts, which are available in THT and press-fit versions.

Products in the series are lead-free and RoHS compliant, and can be processed on conventional SMT lines and soldered using a convection or vapour phase system. The power elements are repeatedly pluggable.

Compared with conventional systems, the design of the contact lamellas is said to significantly reduce plug-in and extraction forces. It is possible to use multiple contacts at once when combined with a position tolerance of up to 0.6 mm.

The power elements are particularly suitable for use as board-to-board connectors. A special alloy used in the products also allows them to be used in high ambient temperatures.
