Weidmuller Expands Popular PCB Connector Line
RICHMOND, VA (October 21, 2002) – Weidmuller has expanded its highly popular PCB connector line by offering customers a new 3.81 mm (0.15 inch) pitch connector system.

The 3.81 mm pitch pin headers are offered in 90° (horizontal) and 180° (vertical) orientations. The socket blocks, with clamping yoke connection, are available with three different cable-entry angle possibilities: 180°, 90°, and 270°. The pin headers and socket blocks are also offered with or without integrated screw flanges for added security.

Available in black and green, the new Weidmuller PCB connectors are layout compatible with the current 3.81 mm connectors in the market. The SL 3.81/BL 3.81 is offered in preferred pole versions (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16 poles) with other versions up to 20 poles available upon request.
