The HPCE® cable assembly is a next-generation power cable assembly for demanding applications requiring high linear current density and low power loss. It offers both one-piece (cable to card edge) and two-piece (cable to header) solutions. Both have a low profile height (7.5mm) and are based on very cost-effective and highly reliable stamped-and-formed power contact technology similar to other power solutions from FCI. The HPCE® cable assembly incorporates an innovative power contact and housing design that permits a more compact and lower profile package for demanding AC and DC power distribution applications. HPCE® cable assembly offers low profile height (for maximized airflow), significantly increased linear current density and low contact resistance characteristics make it ideal for next generation 1U/2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications equipment and datacom/networking equipment.

Features

  • Current rating of 36A for high power contact and 21A for low power contact (with multiple power contacts fully energized) without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air
  • Low profile height (7.5mm) maximizes airflow for effective system cooling
  • Highly vented housing design maximizes heat dissipation
  • Signal contacts are available for power control
  • Number and placement of power and signal contacts are highly configurable for custom power needs
  • Polarized housing option ensures proper mating board orientation for one-piece solution
  • Integrated guide features make it ideal for blindmate applications for two-piece solution
  • Robust design includes touch-proof safety features that are UL/IEC 60950 compliant
  • Power & Signal First-Mate, Last-Break sequencing available for hot swap applications
  • Various contact types to meet many power distribution applications: • High Power: (10 to 14 AWG CtB) • Low Power: (14 to 16 AWG CtB) • Signal: (22 to 26 AWG CtB)
