The PwrBlade+ connector is a next generation AC/DC power distribution connector system for demanding applications requiring higher linear current density and low power loss. It is capable of 192A/linear inch with eight adjacent high power contacts energized simultaneously and ≤ 0.7mΩ power contact resistance after environmental exposure.
The PwrBlade+ connector builds on the PwrBlade® connector's proven technology but includes enhancements to achieve increased performance and density. It is rated up to 75A per power contact without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air. This product features an innovative high power contact design and housing that allows higher current carrying capability in a more compact package.
The high power contact features an optimized beam design and material property enhancements that significantly increase linear current density making it ideal for next generation 1U/2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications equipment and datacom/networking equipment.
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.
