FCI, a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems, presents new members of its PwrBlade product family = PwrBlade+ cable connectors!
Rated at 60Amps per contact and capable of terminating the widest range of wires in one housing, 26AWG-6AWG, the PwrBlade+ cable connectors offer flexibility to meet a wide variety of customer needs. The connectors come in both cable-to-cable and cable-to-board solutions.
The cable connectors are offered in either panel mount or free hanging designs. The new slide to lock (STL) panel mount design saves on installation, material, and labor costs by eliminating hardware.
The available wire range is 10AWG-6AWG for high power, 16AWG-12AWG for low power, and 26AWG-22AWG for signal allowing users to select the appropriate connector and contact arrangements to meet their application needs. The PwrBlade+ Cable is designed to operate between -40°C and 125°C.
Outstanding highlights are:
- Lower contact resistance
- 30% more current carrying capacity (compared to PwrBlade)
- Larger wire size capability up to 13mm², 6AWG (to use fewer wires, occupy less space)
- New Low Power contacts save space for lower current requirements
- Housing Ventilation
- Appropriate arrangement of contacts
The PwrBlade+ Cable Connectors provides a flexible, low cost solution in applications such as telecommunication switches, high-end servers, and hot swappable power supplies.
