New Power Connector Options Increase Design and Performance Options
Samtec’s EXTreme Ten60Power™ header and socket system (ET60T/ET60S Series) is available in both power/signal combinations and power only for increased design flexibility. A new 5-row signal option allows for up to 40 positions in the same form factor as the 3-row option. For higher density without the need for additional space, the 5-row design features a 2.00 mm pitch, versus the 3-row on a 2.54 mm pitch.
The new AC power option provides greater flexibility to this modular EXTreme Ten60Power™ system, which is configurable to meet most application specifications. AC power blades feature a 7.50 mm pitch to accommodate higher voltage levels, while DC power blades are on a 5.50 mm pitch to carry a lower, more constant voltage level. Additionally, the power blades can be selectively loaded to achieve any specific creepage and clearance requirements.
EXTreme Ten60 Power™ System
The EXTreme Ten60Power™ family delivers high current power performance to 60 A per power blade with a low 10 mm profile design for enhanced system flow. Symmetrical or asymmetrical power configurations are available, as well as AC and DC combinations. A split power option is in development. This system features a hot swap option and is rated for a maximum voltage of 250 V.
The socket is available in a vertical orientation for perpendicular mating and optional press-fit tails for ease of board termination. The through-hole, right angle terminal and socket are designed for coplanar applications. Rugged guide posts are standard and assist in blind mating. A top guide post is in development for additional board space savings.
