Samtec's PowerStrip Delivers High Current
PowerStrip connector system.
New Albany, IN — Samtec's line of PowerStrip interconnects now includes the EXTreme Ten60Power socket and terminal system that delivers high current power performance of up to 60A per power blade (1 blade powered at 75°C; 30°C temperature rise) with a low 10mm profile design for enhanced system airflow. This system is an appropriate solution for board-to-board power applications in industries such as networking, telecommunications, datacommunications, automotive/transportation, medical and military/aerospace.

The new socket and terminal system interconnects are available as power only or signal/power combinations for increased design flexibility. Symmetrical or asymmetrical configurations of up to 12 total power blades on 5.50mm (0.217-in.) pitch are available on either side of 24 signal pins on 0.100-in. (2.54mm) pitch. The through-hole, right angle terminal and socket are suitable for coplanar applications. The socket is also available in a vertical orientation for perpendicular mating. This system is rated for resistance to arc for hot-pluggable applications with a maximum voltage rating of 250V. Rugged guide posts are standard and assist in blind mating.

The PowerStrip interconnect family is designed to meet a variety of high current applications and also includes three product levels differentiated by size and power output: PowerStrip/35, PowerStrip/25 and PowerStrip/15. In addition, the PowerStrip family includes a discrete wire power system, a power/signal combination cable system, power and power/signal combinations in right angle and vertical orientations, a hinged system and press fit termination for board level applications.
