TE Connectivity today launched the new FORGE power drawer connector for high-current and high-voltage power supplies and power distribution systems. This blind mateable connector, produced from a scalable mold platform, allows users to specify the connector configuration that best meets their design requirements.
With a voltage rating of up to 1000V AC or DC, coupled with a robust design, the product is well suited for high-efficiency power conversion applications and high-reliability power systems used in rugged environments. Target applications include power inverters, servers, switches and routers used in data centers, alternative energy power conversion, and military and aerospace products.
An added benefit of the FORGE power drawer connector is its use of POWER ARCH contacts – highly conductive contacts, also manufactured by TE, which allow for a much lower mating force than drawer contacts currently offered in the market. This low mating force enables easy mating for a secure connection and helps to reduce potential damage during mating/unmating cycles.
Contacts are touch-safe and available in five different sizes with current ratings from 3 Amps to 250 Amps per contact. Additionally, the product offers three mating sequences for use in hot-plug applications. The contact sequencing helps to control power arcing during mating and unmating.TE Connectivity,forge power draw,connectors,electrical industry,HV connectors,panel building,www.thepanelbuilder.co.uk
