The MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors are the latest addition to the MULTI-BEAM XL power connector product family. MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors feature a new 3-beam contact, made from a thicker / higher conductivity material than the original single beam or 4-beam designs.
The new 3-beam design allows for greater angular mis-alignment between mating connectors and offers a lower mating force. In addition, MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors offer a slimmer housing design that reduces the overall pcb footprint and has the option of using a low power contact - the industry proven Universal Power Module (UPM) contact. The new contacts and housing design allows more power in the same footprint - over 35% more current in the same space. MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors are as modular as the original MULTI-BEAM XL connectors in that they can be designed to fit specific customer needs.
