Phoenix Contact has opted for the new SKEDD direct plug-in technology from Würth Elektronik ICS.
The SKEDD technology provides a new way of contacting using connection technology on the PCB. It enables a solderless direct plug-in connection, meaning that soldering in or press fitting can be avoided. Instead, the terminals are simply inserted and released by hand. Furthermore, additional space is gained through the removal of a connection level, supporting the trend for device miniaturisation.
Phoenix Contact has decided to integrate this direct plug-in technology into the Combicon range of PCB terminals and plug-in connectors. To this end, the two companies have signed a license agreement. Thanks to this partnership, Würth Elektronik ICS and Phoenix Contact are strengthening the further development and distribution of SKEDD technology on global markets.
