The Power Card-Edge series from FCI is a cost-effective connector system that can be used for dc power output from embedded ac-dc power supplies or for power distribution between boards within an enclosure. The connector range includes options for right-angle, vertical, or straddle-mount solder termination.
Right-angle, vertical and straddle-mount connectors are available in various circuit counts with a full complement of power contacts. Right-angle connector options also include versions that combine power and power control signal contacts or power contacts and an integrated ac-pass-through port in a single connector.
Adjacent power contacts are positioned on 2.54-mm pitch along the card edge. Power contacts are manufactured using a high-conductivity copper alloy. Each power contact is rated for up to 7 A measured at 30°C temperature rise in still air. Signal contacts are positioned on 1.27-mm pitch.
Pricing ranges from $1.50 to $3.50 per connector. Samples of the Power Card-Edge connector are available for order.
