PowerPlane busbar power connectors from Molex are now being shipped by distributor Digi-Key.

They deliver high-current performance along with various configurations and feature options, making them applicable for a wide range of power distribution applications.

High-conductivity copper alloy provides superior electrical performance.

The available float-mount design allows up to ±1 mm of misalignment, facilitating blind-mating in deep racks.

These connectors are dimensionally compatible with competitors' connectors, allowing for drop-in replacement for second-source opportunities.

One part number mates with 3 mm and 3.18 mm-thick busbar tabs.

The connectors facilitate mating with de facto output blades for typical power supply applications and silver plating offers lower resistance while providing excellent reliability and performance.

Low voltage drop affords minimal heat generation.

Multiple independent points of contact allow for 40% more points of contact than competitive products for high reliability and enhanced performance.

Operating temperature range is -40°C to +105°C.

The connectors offer a minimum durability of 100 cycles. Voltage is 600Vac.
