FCI's PwrBlade+T Connector Provides Higher Linear Current Density
FCI announces the PwrBlade+ AC/DC power distribution connector system. This next-generation power connector is focused on demanding power applications requiring higher linear current density and low power loss. It is capable of 192A/linear inch with eight adjacent high power contacts energized simultaneously and = 0.7mO power contact resistance after environmental exposure.
The PwrBlade+ connector builds on the PwrBlade® connector’s proven technology but includes enhancements to achieve increased performance and density. It is rated up to 75A per power contact without exceeding a 30°C temperature rise in still air. This product features an innovative high power contact design and housing that allows higher current carrying capability in a more compact package.



“The high power contact features an optimized beam design and material property enhancements that significantly increase linear current density making it ideal for next generation 1U/2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications equipment and datacom/networking equipment,” said John Dodds, global power business development manager at FCI.



The PwrBlade+ connector also features a highly vented, halogen-free housing design, a low power contact option for applications with multiple voltages and lower power requirements and half-bullet guides for a reduced connector footprint.



The PwrBlade+ connector is available with power and signal contacts integrated into a single molded housing for power distribution and power control. Similar to other FCI power solutions, it is modularly tooled making the product highly configurable in terms of the number and placement of the power and signal contacts for custom power needs.



Right angle and co-planar options are available to accommodate various system architectures.
