Positronic debuts modular power/signal connector for size, weight, and power reduction

Positronic

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., 7 Jan. 2013. Positronic Industries officials in Springfield, Mo., have expanded its Scorpion series of power/signal connectors with an 8.20mm low-profile version.

The Scorpion product features a one-piece insulator and a modular tool design, enabling various customer-defined contact arrangements. The customer can define the connector width, as long as the maximum envelope of 101.00 millimeters is not exceeded.

Customers can also achieve optimal size, weight, and power (SWaP) parameters by configuring a power/signal connector from a wide selection of modules. In the low-profile version, module options include size 12 contacts, size 20 contacts, size 22 contacts, and blanks/spacers. Contacts are rated up to 55 amps for size 12, 12 amps for size 20, and 3 amps for size 22 contacts.

Contact resistance values are as low as 1 milliohm for standard-conductivity contacts and 0.7 milliohms for high-conductivity contacts. The blanks/spacers enable the user to space power and signal contacts to tailor creepage and clearance values to meet design criteria.

Contact terminations include board-to-board, board-to-cable, cable-to-cable, and panel-mount options.

Additional features/accessories include ventilation slots in the connector housing, integral blind mate system, integral locking system, float mounts, panel mount clips, and board locks.
