High-Power Modules Enhance Backpanel Connectors

For increased current carrying capacity between the backplane and daughter cards in chassis systems, high-power modules have been added to the Metral family of 2-mm backplane connectors. Each module has a total current carrying capacity up to 80A and a voltage rating of 150V. The corresponding backplane connector features protected contact openings and is UL1950 finger-probe compliant. The modules are designed such that the contacts are flat except for minimal forming at the plug connector’s mating interfaces. Airflow passages in the insulating connector bodies allow air to flow through the mated connectors and over a large percentage of the contact’s surfaces. Other features include an eye-of-the-needle, EON-compliant tail for press-fit PCB termination. FCI, Etters, PA. (800) 237-2374.
