20-A Power Connectors Join Cables and PC Boards

Tyco’s 20-A ET connector series is designed for low-profile power distribution units requiring a small form-factor interface. It’s a low loss, reliable solution for cable to pc-board applications. The connector series feature integrated coding contacts that permit electronic functions such as sense and enable to be designed into the PDU electronics, with activation on full insertion of the cable connector. The cable connector uses crimp contacts having current ratings of 20 A with 2.5-mm2 cable. Tyco is also planning contacts that accept cable having a cross-sectional area of 4 mm2 with a 35-A rating. The 20-A ET cable connectors are available in trays with contacts on reels for customer assembly, or fully assembled to specific customer requirements. A right angle pick-n-place pc-board mount version, which stands less than 8 mm above the board, is also available. A vertical mount version is currently in development with production samples expected for release in November 2008. TYCO ELECTRONICS, Harrisburg, PA. (610) 893-9800.
