Connectors can be configured as power & signal devices
Lane Electronics has released the Positronic Scorpion connector series. The Scorpion connectors are modular and can be configured for use as power connectors, signal level connectors or as a combination of the two in a wide variety of power/signal contact configurations.
In a single housing with a height of just 14.6mm, the user is able to develop a connector solution that can be exactly tailored to suit the application.
The Positronic Scorpion series is available in several formats including blind mate, float mount, panel mount and a cable connector option with an integral locking system. Termination options include solder PCB mount, crimp and press-fit. Lane Electronics can supply a full selection of accessories to add to the versatility of the Scorpion series.
There are seven power contact options with continuous current ratings from 16 to 80A per contact. Contacts are available in sizes 8, 12, 16, 18, 22 as well as 0.6mm hyperboloid. Users are able to specify housings with optional ventilation slots for increased cooling. Sequential mating can restrict the number of connections that go live at the same time.
