Sterling, Mass. Anderson Power Products offers two new 35-amp power drawer connectors that are used for "N + 1" power supply and rectifier systems for server, telecommunications and networking applications. The connectors are UL verified for cross mating with competitive products, which offers additional sourcing alternatives for designers.
The power connectors can be configured with up to eight #16 AWG contacts and 21 #20 AWG contacts, or a combination of four #16 AWG contacts, four #12 AWG contacts and 21 #20 AWG contacts. Pin and socket contacts, which can be specified for first-mate or last-mate connections, are available for both connectors with crimp, solder cup or PC-board terminations.
Key features include integral guide pins, which correct misalignment during blind mating, and an optional floating mount to reduce fatigue stress on the connector during blind mating.
In addition to the launch of the new connectors, Anderson Power Products introduces its "true hot plug" contacts for the 35-amp and 75-amp power drawer connector families. The #12 AWG contacts are rated for disconnect interruption up to 25 amps.
Pricing for the 35-amp power drawer connectors is $24.20 for 1,000-mated pairs with four #12, four #16 and nine #20 contacts.
