PowerStrip interconnects from Samtec

Samtec Inc. has expanded its PowerStrip high power-to-board interconnect system with high current carrying capacity and signal routing options. The PowerStrip interconnects are rated for applications up to 28A at 80C and offer up to eight blade style contacts.

The PowerStrip interconnect system includes the PES/PET series power sockets/terminals together with the PESC/PETC high-power/signal combo series of power socket and terminal strips. Forty signal pins are standard and can handle up to 3A at 80C.

PowerStrips are available for parallel board spacings of 19mm, and for perpendicular and co-planar board interface applications. These polarized through-hole connectors can be used for rugged applications, and right-angle versions have screw-down features. The power connectors are RoHS-compliant and suitable for Pb-free processing. Samtec has a broad line of power and combination power/signal interfaces for board-to-board and wire-to-board applications.

Pricing is approximately 35 cents per contact in production quantities.
