FCI, a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems announced an expansion of their power connector family which now includes the PwrMAX Ortho power connectors.
PwrMAX Ortho power connectors are designed to support a new datacenter equipment trend known as Orthogonal system packaging architectures. This architecture can offer improved data transfer and improved system cooling by eliminating mid-plane circuit boards. The connectors can be used with either busbars or circuit boards to distribute power in systems with orthogonal architectures.
The connectors also feature FCI’s revolutionary new GCS plating, supports current loads of up to 100 amps per contact, is extremely energy efficient, with a maximum contact resistance of just 0.3mOhms, and is rated to operate at up to 125°C.
