NOW AVAILABLE IN STRADDLE MOUNT VERSION!
FCI, a leading manufacturer of connectors and interconnect systems, announces that its High Power Card Edge (HPCE(TM)) connector is now available in a straddle mount configuration. The straddle mount configuration provides a lower profile height option (2.8mm above the PCB surface) to facilitate even greater system airflow.
The HPCE connector features ultra-low contact resistance (<= 0.6 m? after environmental exposure) for low connector power loss, significantly increased linear current density (180A/inch with multiple contacts energized), a low profile height for increased system airflow and heat dissipation, a robust housing with touch-proof safety features, and mounting options to ensure proper mating and enhanced solder reflow.
The connector is rated to 9A per power contact beam (with multiple power contacts fully energized) without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air. The HPCE connector is based on very cost-effective and highly reliable stamped-and-formed power contact technology.
"The addition of the straddle mount configuration to our established vertical and right-angle connector range extends the HPCE connector's reach to an even greater number of system architectures," said John Dodds, global power product manager at FCI. "The HPCE connector family's excellent performance in combination with its flexibility and tooling modularity make it ideal for next generation 1U/2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications equipment and datacom/networking equipment."
Straddle mount HPCE connectors are available with power and signal contacts integrated into a single molded housing for power distribution and power control. The flexible, modular tooling approach used for the HPCE connector makes the product highly configurable in terms of the number and placement of the power and signal contacts for custom power needs.
