Combo D Subconnectors Add Power Contacts/Screw Terminals
A series of power contacts now features screw terminals with wire protection for field installation. Designed for use with combo D subconnectors, the contacts can be easily installed in 2W2, 3W3, 5W5, 8W8, and other combination D subconnectors. Available in plug (part #131C36009X) and socket (part #132C36009X) versions, they’re rated for 20 A and accept up to AWG 14 wire sizes. The contact mating area is gold-plated with 30 milli-inches of gold. The screw terminal is nickel-plated. Pricing is $2 each in 1000-unit quantities. Delivery is from stock to three weeks.

Board-To-Board Interconnect Customizes Power Connections
The modular board-to-board Power Dock connector system offers a broad range of customized optional connections. These include vertical or right-angle board orientations, up to three separate power-mating sequences, press-fit (compliant-pin) or solder through-hole termination, six- or 24-circuit signal modules, and self-aligning capabilities. They’re drop-in replaceable and intermatable with existing power connectors. Contacts are rated up to 35 A each, with an option to include signal circuits. Pricing depends on quantity and configuration. A typical mated pair consisting of three power blades and a 24-circuit signal with gold-plated compliant pins, mounting ears, and guide pins costs $14.95 each in 10,000-unit lots.
