HARRISBURG, Pa., 10 Nov. 2016. TE Connectivity (TE) in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the ELCON Mini power connectors and cable assemblies for aerospace and defense applications that must operate in tight spaces.

The ELCON Mini family enables engineers to address increasing power demands, delivering a 400-volt rating to 40 amps per contact in a 2-position 8-millimeter high form factor that is roughly the size of a popular HDMI connector.

Power engineers and designers often need to be able to make power connections with limited available space and budget along with increasing power demands that can pose quite a challenge. ELCON Mini power connectors and cable assemblies come in 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-position configurations.

The power connectors and cable assemblies have positive metal latch connections, low resistance, and reliable interface. Cable assembly solutions from TE also offer high-flex and customizable break-out options for easy routing and installation.

ELCON Mini connectors and cable assemblies are an internal wire-to-board power solution for the Open Compute Project (OCP) wedge (top-of-rack) switches.

The OCP is developing standard data center hardware designs that manufacturers can use to build compatible and scalable products with minimal development costs.
