Munich – Yamaichi Electronics is expanding the Y-Circ P series with a new back wall-mounted socket.

The new ‘WD’ socket type is a natural for back wall mounting in combination with circuit board contacts. The wall mounted socket has anti-rotation protection and a solid back stop. This can optionally be equipped with a sealing ring to permit anti-rotation protection for round holes without a flat section.

The sockets are available in three different sizes (09, 12, and 15) and can be combined with all existing pin assignments and contact types.
