The Power Card Edge connectors are a cost-effective system that can be used for DC power output from embedded AC/DC power supplies or for power distribution between boards within an enclosure. The narrow connector body helps maximize airflow for increased cooling and is well-suited for use in 1U rack-mount servers or on power distribution boards inside 1U redundant power supply assemblies.Adjacent power contacts are positioned on 2.54mm pitch along the card edge. Power contacts are manufactured using a high-conductivity copper alloy. Each power contact is rated for up to 7A current measured at 30°C temperature rise in still air. Signal contacts are positioned on 1.27mm pitch.The connector range includes options for right-angle, vertical, or straddle-mount solder termination with a full complement of power contacts. Right-angle options also include versions that combine power and power control signal contacts or power contacts and an integrated AC pass-through port in a single connector.
One-piece card edge design provides cost-effective power delivery with capacity for up to 7A per power contact
An arrow connector body enables use in 1U servers and power supplies
Low-profile design helps maximize airflow for system cooling
Option for integration of signals and power in a single right-angle connector supports both power control and power distribution
