WBT® releases true 75 Ohm RCA type plug and socket.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 2004

WBT® GmbH of Essen, Germany announces a new RCA type plug. This next generation connector, called nextgen™, will work with existing sockets. The nextgen™ connector features a patented design (pat. 10258689).

Highlighted features…

- Available in two versions; model WBT -0110Ag utilizing pure silver contacts with platinum plating and model WBT -0110Cu which has pure copper contacts with gold plating.

- Significantly less metal in the signal path than a typical RCA type plug.

- Aluminum -Magnesium alloy barrel, with non -magnetic and non -conductive anodized ceramic surface.
- Patented locking mechanism.

- True wideband 75 -ohm characteristic impedance; 1GHz at 75 ohms.

- Modular construction - i.e., the ground contact and center contact join together as a sub -assembly which then snaps into the connector body.

- Both versions are available in the following color -coded options: black, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, grey and white, perfect for multi -channel identification.

There are also new nextgen™ sockets, WBT -0210Ag/Cu, which are compatible with existing plugs. For U.S. sales and more information about WBT® products, please contact:
