The Power Card Edge connector is a cost-effective connector system that can be used for DC power output from embedded AC/DC power supplies or for power distribution between boards within an enclosure. The connector range includes options for right angle, vertical, or straddle mount solder termination. The connectors' low profiles are ideal for use in enterprise data or communications equipment, particularly in servers and external storage systems.
The width of the Power Card Edge connector body is 9mm less, making it well-suited for use in 1U rackmount servers or on power distribution boards inside 1U redundant power supply assemblies. The low connector profile helps maximize airflow through a power supply for increased cooling.
Adjacent power contacts are positioned on 2.54mm pitch along the card edge. Power contacts are manufactured using a high-conductivity copper alloy. Each power contact is rated for up to 7A current measured at 30ºC temperature rise in still air. Signal contacts are positioned on 1.27mm pitch.
Right angle, vertical, and straddle mount connectors are available in various circuit counts with a full complement of power contacts. Right angle connector options also include versions that combine power and power control signal contacts or power contacts and an inegrated AC pass-through port in a single connector.
