MULTI-BEAM HD Power Connectors

Powerful and Customizable Connector Selections

With a variety of available power and signal contacts, mating sequences, and a modular design, you can design in the MULTI-BEAM XLE, MULTI-BEAM XL, or new MULTI-BEAM High Density (HD) power connectors that best fit your application needs.

Our MULTI-BEAM family of solutions are blind-mateable, highly versatile power connectors. These products offer high reliability and high current densities (up to 135A per contact) with options for hot-swappable applications, too. These connectors are ideal for blind-mating in modular and rack mounted systems. The high performance design meets requirements across many applications, including power distribution for compact (1U) computer servers to high-end servers, fault-tolerant computers, networking equipment, telecommunication switches, medical instrumentation, and industrial control equipment.

New MULTI-BEAM HD Connectors

Up to 135A per contact

TE’s new MULTI-BEAM high density (HD) connectors offer a more compact design with up to 135A per power contact and feature high density power and signal which saves space and reduces overall power consumption.

Modular tooling makes the connector highly configurable.


Slim guide sockets reduce the overall PCB footprint.


Vented housing allows for better heat dissipation.

Key Benefits and Features

MULTI-BEAM HD Power Connectors
  • High current density: each power contact carries up to135 A
  • High signal density: signal contact is integrated with end module, each end module can support up to 15 signals
  • Common signal module and power contact module
  • Flexible configurations with different contact quantity and positions
  • High  power and low power contact types
  • Tooling platform is common for all configurations to decrease the new  tooling investment
  • Much higher current per contact to decrease the cost of total current capacity
  • Flexible offset variable in receptacle side
  • Low resistance and voltage drop
  • Superior and long term reliability
  • TE consistent quality control

MULTI-BEAM XLE Power Connectors for Hot-Swappable Power Supplies

Things to Consider

When Choosing a Power Connector

When choosing a power connector, consider the type of connector the application needs, its current and voltage requirements, and whether or not it will require hot-pluggability: 


Does the application require a board-to-board, wire-to-board, wire-to-wire, bus bar, or a combination of these types of connectors? Our portfolio of power connectors can help.


Does the connector require power only, or a combination of power and signal, and how much current is required in the application?


Will the application be mated while under electrical load? If so, a hot-pluggable MULTI-BEAM connector is required.
