Richmond, Va. – Targeting industrial and heavy-equipment providers, ERNI has expanded its high-current power element series to include combined flexible/massive press-fit and purely massive press-fit technologies. The high power wire-to-board connectors with press-fit terminations provide a gas-tight interface to the PCB via, eliminating the need for high temperature soldering and its negative effects on the PCB substrate. Applications include vehicle electrical systems, power distribution assemblies, buss-bars, and hybrid applications that require high power solutions and reliability requirements.
Part of the BLUEcontact Solutions portfolio, the expanded PowerElements product series is said to deliver superior torque support and optimal power transmission. The combined flexible and massive press-fit zone BLUEcontact PowerElements are available in M5, M6, M8 and M10 versions. They are rated up to 290A per power element at 20°C, with an operating temperature range from -40°C to +135°C.
The BLUEcontact PowerElements with a purely massive press-fit terminal are available in M3, M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10 versions. With a current carrying capacity of 10A per pin (6 to 36), these power elements operate in a temperature range from -40°C to +135°C. Several versions are available with a massive press-fit zone including: with male thread and full pin population, with female thread and full pin population, with female thread and two rows pin population, with female thread and circular pin population; angled with thread and full pin population, angled without thread and full pin population, angled with thread and two rows pin population, in addition to angled without thread and two rows pin population.
