Power Distribution Connectors Handle Higher Current

The PwrBlade+ next-generation ac/dc power distribution connector system handles demanding power applications requiring higher linear current density and low power loss. Rated up to 75A per power contact without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air, it can carry 192A per linear inch with eight adjacent high-power contacts energized simultaneously and presenting 0.7 m? of contact resistance after environmental exposure. The PwrBlade+ connector also features a highly vented, halogen-free housing design, a low power contact option for applications with multiple voltages and lower power requirements, and half-bullet guides for a reduced connector footprint.
