nextgen™ - a new generation of connectors from WBT
» more about the awards

75-ohm characteristic impedance means that these sockets not only transmit superb analogue signals but also outstanding digital audio and video signals. The transmission bandwidth is 1 GHz.

The contact elements of the connector are made of high-purity silver, the best electrical conductor of all, in order to ensure optimum signal transmission. The metal is passivated so that the surface does not oxidise and impair contact quality.

The inner contact is an active spring contact. The newly developed three-segment tulip contact is pressed onto the central pin of the RCA plug by a surrounding double bronze spring ring. Not only does this ensure reliable contact with non-standardised RCA plugs but contact also remains reliable even after the plug has been connected and disconnected many times over.

The outer contact is in the shape of a double wave which encompasses the socket element made of robust Ultramid*. This wave shape guarantees reliable contact with any RCA plug. In addition, the reduction in the amount of conductor material to the absolute minimum prevents the creation of eddy currents, enabling the WBT-0210 to transmit signals that are totally free of distortion.

Eddy currents occur in metal components near to which alternating current flows. These currents can result in major signal distortions.

Mounting insulators are supplied and ensure not only insulated but also twist-proof mounting and polarity identification. Counter nuts and double step washers with lug are also supplied.
