Power Connector Feeds µTCA Systems

Carrying power and signals as required in the developing MicroTCA standard, the MINIPAK HD power connector handles up to 280A of current while providing 72 signal contacts in a space measuring 65 mm x 27 mm. The connector delivers a current density exceeding 170A per square inch, meeting the output requirements of the power entry module standard. It features a hot-pluggable contact design to minimize contact damage during live mating and un-mating cycles, as well as a flat-rock seating design for the compliant press-fit vertical receptacle. The mating right angle plug employs solder tails to accommodate PCBs from 0.062" to 0.093" thick. Prices for the right angle plug and vertical receptacle are $9.76 and $7.61 each/1,000, respectively.
