Safe Connector Handles 1 kV Apps

The FORGE power drawer blind-mateable connector carries a voltage rating up to 1 kVac/dc. With a scalable mold platform, the component allows users to specify the number of modules on its housing as well as the size and location of its contacts. Housings can be designed in two-row, one-to-five column configurations for a maximum of 10 modules and a current carrying capacity of over 1,000A.  Other features include POWER ARCH contacts that allow for a much lower mating force than other drawer contacts. Contacts are touch-safe and available in five different sizes with current ratings from 3A 250A per contact. TE CONNECTIVITY, Harrisburg, PA. (800) 522-6752.
