High-density power connectors occupy 50% less PCB space

17-09-2018 | TTI Europe | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Now available at TTI Europe, Molex Ultra-Fit Power Connectors have a streamlined design that allows smaller, more efficient packaging than comparable power interconnects, yet still offers similar current density. The connectors give up to 14A, but take up less than half the PCB footprint of similar devices, allowing electronics designers to resolve challenges across a very broad spectrum of products.

Features of the connectors include various mechanically-keyed colour coded options which allow same-circuit, multiple connector uses with practically no chance of cross mating. Optional Terminal Position Assurance retainers ensure the terminal is fully seated in the housing to lessen terminal back out. As housings have a positive lock design with an anti-snag feature, the mated connector assemblies will not accidentally disengage. These ultra-low mating force terminals provide six independent points of contact at the interface and terminals are fully isolated.

Electrical specifications encompass 400V maximum voltage, current 14A in tin options and 12A in gold plated options, dielectric withstanding voltage 1800V, and insulation resistance 1000MOhm.

The connector family is ideal for consumer appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators, industrial applications such as telecommunications/networking hubs and servers; assembly line equipment; transportation applications including automotive infotainment; lighting ballasts and lighting fixtures; aerospace and defence applications, and medical devices including patient care devices.
