Molex expands its EXTreme Ten60Power high-current connector product line with the EXTreme Ten60 Split Blade contact system, enabling companies to meet a wider range of power supplies for data communications, telecom and power customers requiring high current density and low power consumption And signal demand. The Split Blade Power Module is part of a powerful portfolio of modular and customer configurable high current hybrid power and signal connectors with currents up to 260.0A per linear inch and low side height (10.00mm) housing with improved system airflow design.
Jeff Torres, global product manager at Molex, said: "As the demand for computing power increases, hardware and power supply manufacturers face greater pressure on custom power connector products, requiring more current in a smaller space. But it doesn't add significant cost. The focus of the Molex product development team is to solve this power problem with maximum design flexibility. By expanding the EXTreme Ten60Power series of connectors, we have consolidated our leadership in the industry and are now available on the market. The widest range of modular solutions offering high current and signal density in a minimal overall package."
"The new EXTreme Ten60Power shunt blade power module uses a dielectric plastic in the middle to separate the two parts of the standard EXTreme Ten60Power power terminal, each carrying a 30.0A current at 30 ° C. By separating the blades and By reducing the distance between energized power contacts, the shunt blade module provides faster response times, lower overall resistance, and greater capacitance advantages. If customers do not need standard Ten60 power contacts to achieve full coverage in all domains The 60.0A rated current also increases the power contact granularity. The modular design allows the shunt blade module to be easily integrated into standard EXTreme Ten60Power components with standard power modules and high-density signal (HDS) modules to meet specific customer needs."
The Extreme Ten60Power connector provides split-blade power modules with 1 to 9 circuits, standard power blade modules for 1 to 10 circuits, and signal modules for 6 to 60 circuits. All modules can be configured to accommodate almost any design application without the need for mold costs or additional lead times. The DC (5.50mm) and AC (7.50mm) high current contact blade spacing options offer greater design flexibility, and the power blade is available in both right and vertical orientations for coplanar or vertical applications. Both plugs and sockets feature Molex's proven, reliable power and signal contact design with post-connect/break-off (LMFB) or pre-/post-break (FMLB) capabilities. The original 3-row signal module has a 2.54 X 2.54mm signal interval, while the high-density 5-row signal module (HDS) has a 2.00 X 1.65mm pitch for space-constrained areas.
