W Square Wire Wrap Pin
Square wrap pins are the most commonly used terminations in ATE fixturing for large-scale wiring. QA’s products provide excellent electrical integrity through a gas-tight connection that prevents the effects of corrosion. They are one of the most cost-effective connection methods for skilled fixture makers because they facilitate rapid installation, reliable performance, and are inexpensive solutions. QA wire wrap pins are available in a variety of lengths.
