PowerStrip/10 interconnects

Samtec debuts PowerStrip/10 line of power interconnect solutions featuring an ultrasmall, space saving design and dual leaf blade contacts capable of carrying from 14A to 23A per contact at a 30C temperature rise (depending on the number of contacts powered).

PowerStrip/10 Socket and Terminal Strips (UPS/UPT Series) are available in vertical or right angle orientations for co-planar and perpendicular applications with a choice of 7mm or 10mm standard stack heights. The 3.81mm pitch system may be configured with 2, 4, 6, or 8 power pins and offers a typical current carrying capacity of 21A per contact (rated at 80C with four gold plated contacts powered). An optional locking clip for additional stability in rugged applications is also available.

Samtec's PowerStrip product line also includes systems with typical current carrying capacities of 25A and 35A per contact (dependant on temperature and number of contacts powered). PowerStrip/25 connectors on 5mm pitch include power and power/signal combos, a hinged design for 90 mating, and a discrete wire cable system. PowerStrip/35 connectors on 6.35mm pitch are available in power or power/signal combos.
