Sidney, N.Y. — Amphenol Industrial Products Group has expanded its line of RADSOK high-current connectors with a compact power-to-board connector. The PowerBlok WTB (wire-to-board) latching connector provides a high current single-point of connection to a printed circuit board (PCB) of up to 70 A.
The PowerBlok WTB can be used to deliver high-current internal connections between cables and PCBs in a variety of applications including servers, data storage systems, cellular infrastructure equipment, and battery systems.
The PowerBlok WTB’s stamped and formed receptacle provides multiple points of contact for even current transfer to the PCB, said Amphenol. Users can crimp a wire directly onto the contact to bring power to the board. The low-profile, right-angle exit has a less than 1/2-inch mated height. No special crimp tools are required with this connector.
- Compact 15.7- x 15.7-mm footprint
- Up to 70 A delivered to the PCB
- High current single-point connection
- Patented RADSOK technology
The RoHS compliant PowerBlok WTB uses Amphenol’s RADSOK technology that delivers higher current ratings and lower contact resistance in comparison to other contact methods on the market, according to the company.
