Price is per plug (single). When ordered in pairs, you will receive one red, one white, to identify +/-.
The nextgen™ WBT-0681 Cu 8mm copper spade connectors have signal conductors built from pure copper, and construction is centred on the minimal mass principle. The base body of the spade represents a nearly metal-free construction. You can thus enjoy a much more detailed and spacious sound!
The key to the superb quality of this spade lies in the patented sandwich design of its contact fork: Elastomer oscillation dampers eliminate airborne noise and mechanical vibrations as well as magnetostrictions. This ensures almost total suppression of contact microphonics, and there is no interfering ancillary noise. The fracture resistance of the connection is improved at the same time. The sandwich design of the contact forks (sandwich spades) with elastomer inserted in a steel cap generates high and uniform contact pressure while minimising transition resistance. Four punched contact points on the bottom of the fork ensure precision contact. The quality of signal transmission is markedly improved, particularly with high currents or small voltages. The surface of the copper conductor is protected against oxidation by nickel-free 24 carat gold plating to underpin the low transition resistance levels in the long term.
The spade is connected to the cable by means of crimping. The two Torx screws with fine thread make for a reliable connection with high tensile strength. The plug elements are fully insulated and meet the CE and IEC safety requirements.
- 10mm2 (7AWG) max conductor size
- Connection: crimped via T6 Torx wrench (supplied when 4x are ordered)
- Pure copper conductor
- 24 carat direct gold plating (nickel-free)
The nextgen™ principle is the first technique which allows pure copper or fine silver to be used as signal conductors without compromising on robustness and the long-term behaviour of the connectors.
- Hybrid construction of functional materials
- Fully automatic production by WBT special tooling, thus
- Perfect workmanship and seris consistency
- Made in Germany
- Signal conductors well adapted to the cable cross section made of pure Cu or Ag
- New electrical and mechanical vibration control
