FCI, a leading developer of connectors and interconnect systems, has expanded its line of power I/O solutions with the development of the D-Subminiature Power Connectors. The D-Subminiature Power Connector range is a standard interface widely used in many market segments. FCI offers connector options that accommodate either all power or mixed power and signal contacts. The connector form factors are directly inspired by those of the traditional D-subminiature signal connectors, long used as standard I/O connectors in many types of electronic equipment. The power connectors are also principally used for I/O solutions because of their robust and shielding design.
The product family includes many versions, all using standard metal shell dimensions, providing great flexibility to the system design engineer.
All power contacts: 2V2 (2 power contacts, coded version), 3V3 (3 power contacts coded version), 3W3 (3 power contacts), 5W5 (5 power contacts), and 8W8 (8 power contacts).
Mixed signal and power contacts: 5W1 (5 contacts of which 1 power and 4 signal contacts), 11W1, 7W2, 21W1, 17W2, 13W3, 9W4, 25W3, 21WA4, 27W2, 47W1, 24W7, and 36W4.
