Power-distribution connectors for mobile communications equipment introduced by FCI

ETTERS, Pa., 31 July 2012. FCI in Etters, Pa., is introducing the PwrBlade+ series power connectors for distributing power in truck and trailer-based communications equipment.

The PwrBlade+ series power electronics connectors combine high linear current density, low power loss, ruggedness, durability, high power contacts, and optimized beam design to increase linear current density in a compact package.

Contacts are rated to 75 amps without exceeding a 30-degree Celsius temperature rise in still air. The PwrBlade+ series connectors maintain an operating temperature range of -40 to 125 C, and its vented design makes the most of heat dissipation, company officials say (story continues below).

The PwrBlade+ series connectors can handle two different requirements for power applications, with extended headroom on the front-end design and improved energy management. The power-distribution connectors feature as many as 20 power contacts with zero to 148 signal contacts, and provide three levels of sequencing of power and signals.

Available with either solder or press-fit board termination, the PwrBlade+ series connectors come with co-planar, R/A, and mezzanine mating options that enable systems designers to use the PwrBlade+ in configurations where a combination of power and signal connections are necessary.

The connector is appropriate for integration within 1U and 2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications, data communications, and networking equipment. Mounted guideposts provide blind in-field mating.
