PwrBlade+ Connector | FCI

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.

Features & Benefits:

  • High power contact option (up to 75A/contact; 30°C temperature rise in still air) for cost-effective power delivery in 1U and 2U power supplies or power distribution applications
  • Low power contact option (up to 49A/contact; 30°C temperature rise in still air) for applications with multiple voltages and lower power requirements
  • Highly vented housing design maximizes heat dissipation for effective system cooling
  • Half-bullet guides offer a reduced connector footprint
  • Housing material is halogen-free for next generation environmental requirements
  • Large operating temperature range (-40°C to +125°C) for extreme environments
  • Right angle and co-planar options are available with both power contacts for power distribution and signal contacts for power control
  • Number and placement of power and signal contacts are highly configurable for custom power needs
  • Solder or press-fit tails are available for termination flexibility
  • Compatible with lead-free processing temperatures

Applications:

  • AC/DC pluggable power supplies in data, telecom & datacom/networking equipment
  • Industrial PCs
  • Industrial controls & instrumentation
  • Medical
