Molex Power Edge Connectors

Molex Power Edge™ connectors are designed for direct mating to a customer's 1.58mm (.062") thick, double-sided card edge PCB or bus bar tab.  Molex expands the existing Power Edge family to include assemblies with signal circuits rated up to 3A per contact. 

The signal contacts permit Power Edge connector mating with a combination of power and signal traces on a double-sided card edge. The addition of the signal circuits have been incorporated into assemblies with signal segments only and mixed power and signal segments. The signal only assemblies are available in  2, 3 and 4 segment connectors, consisting of 8 signal circuits per segment, in either solder or press-fit pc tail versions. The mixed-power and signal assemblies are available in 2, 3 and 4 segment connectors with power and signal segments contained in the same assembly, available in either solder or press-fit PC tail versions.

Features & Benefits:

  • Connector assemblies available in 2, 3 and 4 segments (2 contacts per segment) of signal circuits or mixed-power and signal circuits
    • Greater flexibility for signal or mixed power or signal card edge applications
  • Isolated contacts on opposite side of connector assembly segments
    • Allows for connector combinations of 8 total signal circuits per segment (4 each on the upper and lower side of the segment)
  • End-to-end stackable
    • Allows for variations of power, signal or mixed power or signal connectors to be stacked end-to-end to mate with double-sided card edge lengths of up to 203.20mm (8.000")
  • Press-fit or solder tail terminations
    • Compatible with standard PCB's or backplanes
  • Power contacts rated for current interruption
    • Matches true hot-plugging requirements
  • Compatible with competitive connector
    • Drop-in replacement
