AirMax® Power Connectors

Hard Metric High Power connectors are a perfect complement to AFCI‘s ExaMAX®, AirMax®, ZipLine® and Millipacs® signal connectors. These power connectors mount alongside their signal counterparts and are used in applications where bulk current is delivered by backplane or midplane to power consuming components on a mating daughter card (blades, controller boards, etc).

The power contacts incorporate multiple points of contact and are made using a high conductivity copper alloy. In addition, the unique housing design includes openings that allow air to flow through the mated connectors thus enhancing heat dissipation properties. These design features enable the connector system‘s high current-carrying capability.

Contacts in the 1x2 version carry 40 amps per contact for a total of 80 amps per module. Contacts in the 2x2 and 2x3 modules carry 20 amps per contact. The protected backplane receptacles are UL 60950 Compliant (Finger Probe).
