Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now shipping ELCON Micro power connectors from TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity and sensors. These wire-to-board connectors deliver high current density of 12.5 A per pin in an industry-standard 3 mm contact pitch, making them ideal for datacenter equipment such as servers, switches, storage devices, and battery testing machines.
TE’s ELCON Micro power connectors, available from Mouser Electronics, support 2- to 24-pin configurations and different currents with multiple combinations of different wire sizes. The connectors feature a standard 600 max voltage rating plus a low maximum contact resistance of 5 milliohms, which provides lower temperature rise and lower power loss on the connector.
With a temperature range of minus 40 to 105 degrees C and halogen-free construction, TE’s ELCON Micro connectors provide reliable performance in harsh environments. The connectors’ headers are designed to prevent mis-mating and are PCB footprint-compatible with products from other suppliers, enabling easy upgrades to existing designs.
