New telecommunication and high-end computing equipment require increasing amounts of current from power supplies. To meet this challenge, Molex is pleased to expand its product offering of high-current connector solutions with the BBC. The Extreme PowerBBC™ is a compact, high current connector for direct mating of two perpendicular power bus bars typically found in power supply or switching power supply applications. Rated up to 320.0A, the EXTreme Power-BBC offers over 20% more current than competing products. The higher current provides increased power or safety factor for customer applications. The high performance, contact design offers true hot pluggability. The parallel contacts free-float within the EXTreme Power-BBC housing to facilitate blind mating with the bus bar tab. The BBC's mounting dimensions are identical to competing connectors for easy second sourcing opportunities.
