Singapore — FCI expanded its power connector family with the introduction of the PwrMAX Ortho power connectors. Designed to support data center equipment, this new Orthogonal system packaging architecture can offer improved data transfer and system cooling by eliminating mid-plane circuit boards, said FCI.
The PwrMAX Ortho power connectors can be used with either busbars or circuit boards to distribute power in systems with orthogonal architectures. The connectors feature FCI’s new GCS plating, and support current loads of up to 100 amps per contact. The energy-efficient connectors offer a maximum contact resistance of 0.3 mOhms, and is rated to operate at up to 125°C.
