EXTreme PowerEdge™ is designed as a one piece vertical card edge style connector that can be used with either gold finger pc boards, or as a bus bar interconnect for power supply or power distribution applications. Power Edge is a compact, high current power interconnect solution rated at 40 amperes per contact with the ability to integrate signal pins within the same housing for power/signal hybrid designs. Each signal contact is rated at 3A. Attributing to its slender profile, EXTreme PowerEdge allows excellent airflow around the connector. This connector is unique in that it can be configured for AC and DC power capability in either the same housing, or with multiple housings stacked end-to-end. Incorporating proven Molex design elements EXTreme PowerEdge high performance terminal contacts feature redundant interface points for optimum mating of double-sided card edge gold fingers or bus bar segments, and provide 157.0A per inch of pc board real estate. It is an excellent low profile power card edge interface for applications where rugged single piece mating is needed and where space is at a premium. EXTreme PowerEdge is available in power only, signal only, and power/signal combinations for design flexibility. Each power segment contains two isolated power contacts, while each signal segment contains 8 independent signal contacts.
