HPCE Connector Provides High Linear Current Density

The High Power Card Edge (HPCE) connector targets applications requiring low power loss and high linear current density. The component is rated for 9A per power contact beam with multiple power contacts fully energized and without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air. With a profile height of less than or equal to 7.5 mm, the connectors are available with power and signal contacts integrated into a single molded housing for power distribution and power control. Other features include low contact resistance characteristics, a robust housing with touch-proof safety features, and a polarization option to ensure proper mating. Vertical and right-angle options are available. FCI USA INC., Etters, PA. (800) 237-2374.
