The Power Connectors are functional building blocks in the Metral® modular backplane interconnect system. All connectors are designed in accordance with the IEC 61076-4-104 standard. The comprehensive connector range in the Metral® family supports power solutions in combination with other functions like signal and coax. Each power module provides 8 or 10 individual contacts, and each contact designed to carry 3A current. The available termination options support press-fit or solder-to-board application. Other options provide capability for rear plug-up or staggered pin lengths to support sequential mating. Easy-to-use and cost-effective application equipment is available for press-fit connectors to keep assembly times, as well as production costs, to a minimum.
