Under the product name WE-EEL, Würth Elektronik now offers cable clips made of aluminum sheet to enable stable grounded fixation of cables of various dimensions. Cables with diameters ranging from 2.5 to 20.5 mm can now be simply affixed to circuit boards using clips in any of twelve different sizes and an M4 screw. The contact resistance is lower than 0.01 Ω. WE-EEL clips can be used for the low-resistance connection of the cable shield with the grounding point – such as, circuit board, metal plane, or casing – thus improving the cable’s EMC properties. The clips are available from stock in unlimited numbers of items with immediate effect.
