Modular connector system with machined contacts for power and signal applications introduced by Powell

Aug. 17, 2021
The Scorpion series power or signal connector system consists of board-to-board, cable-to-cable, or board- and panel-to-cable or board versions.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. – Electronics distributor Powell Electronics in Marlborough, Mass., is offering Scorpion modular connector system from Positronic, an Amphenol company in Springfield, Mo.

The components can be configured for use as power connectors of 16 to 120 amps; signal level connectors; or as a combination of the two in several different power- and signal-contact configurations.

The modular tooling provides several keying options, yet still provides a one-piece insulator for use in the finished connector. Positronic's Scorpion series includes more than 35 modules available in standard-profile 14.6 millimeter height and low-profile 8.2-millimeter-height versions.

Blank module options enable design engineers to space power and signal contacts to meet creepage and clearance values necessary for different applications.

The Scorpion series includes board-to-board, cable-to-cable or board and panel-to-cable or board versions. An outlet hole enables air cooling onto a power contact. Termination options are solder PCB mount, crimp, and press-fit.

Available mating alternatives are blind mating, float mount, panel mount, and cable connector with a locking system. The precision formed and solid machined contacts feature shielded, high voltage and hyperboloid contact versions.
