nextgen™ Pole Terminal
WBT-0710 Cu mC
nextgen™ - a new generation of connectors from WBT
» more about the awards
Thanks to the separation of signal transmission and mechanical stability, it is now possible to use optimum materials for the first time. Signals are transmitted using high-purity copper, one of the best electrical conductors. Copper has severe mechanical limitations, however, and its use is only permitted by an ingenious combination with high-performance plastics. The copper surface is naturally gold-plated to prevent corrosion.
Moreover, the soul of the new binding post WBT-0710 Cu mC is of one-piece design, removing all unnecessary transition resistance. The signal conductor is embedded in a matrix of fibre glass and mineral reinforced plastic and equipped with an anti-magnetic stainless steel strut for perfect strain relief. An additional elastomer damping ring keeps oscillations away from the contact level and successfully suppresses any kind of contact microphonics.
The design principle means that this construction has an electrical insulating effect. Decorative brass elements give the WBT-0710 nextgen™ its attractive appearance and make it pleasant to the touch without impairing electrical safety. As a result, the component meets all the relevant standards and safety regulations.
The ingenious angling of the signal conductor permits secure connection of spades, banana plugs and crimped cable ends.
Solder lugs that can be folded over if needed.
WBT recommends the surface-friendly silver solder WBT-0800 (see also solder connection).
Mounting insulators are supplied and ensure not only insulated but also twist-proof mounting and polarity identification. Counter nuts, double step washers with lug and puzzle plates are also supplied. The puzzle plates can be clipped into one another. This ensures precise terminal spacing of 19 or 30 mm, but above all absolute torsion protection. The nuts on appliances with high intrinsic mechanical vibration levels like loudspeakers should be additionally secured using the WBT serrated lock washer WBT-9150, for example.
Hint for OEMs
Due to the current safety regulations, the 4 mm banana holes of WBT pole terminals should be closed using the safety stick WBT-0799.
