Power connectors are engineered to reliably connect power, providing efficient supply and distribution in communications equipment using between 5 and 1,000 amps. Manufactured for DC- and AC-powered applications, these power connectors types offer many configurations: our RAPID LOCK connector is a single-pole, quick connect/disconnect replacement for lug connection; our MULTI-BEAM XL is a blind-mateable, highly versatile connector with high reliability and high current density.
We manufacture a broad portfolio of power connectors including busbar connectors for power distribution as well as power supply interconnects, wire-to-board connectors and backplane power connectors. Our power connectors are available for both low-power and high-power applications, with some power connectors capable of carrying up to 500A.
Our solid contacts are integrated into most of our DEUTSCH connectors for aerospace, defense, and marine applications. These contacts are engineered for standard applications up to 200°C and can help withstand higher temperatures and higher vibration constraints up to 260°C for engine applications. Our contacts can be qualified to the EN3155 standard or to specific customer standards such as ESC or ABS qualifications.
Power Connection Flexibility
In consumer electronics, a power connector connects a battery within a hand held device, while the 5mm Power Key connector connects line voltage to an appliance’s control board. With TE's power connectors, you gain the flexibility to deliver superior designs with reliable, high-density signal integrity at higher data rates.
Circular Power Connectors
Our circular power connectors are available in a wide range of positions, from 1 position to 63 positions. These power connector types are available with pin contacts and socket contacts. These connectors are used in power, signal, and data circuit applications. Our circular power connectors are manufactured through our AMP, DEUTSCH, Intercontect, LGH, and MATE-N-LOK product families.
Card Edge Power Connectors
Our comprehensive card edge power connector portfolio can offer safer, customizable, Common Redundant Power Supply (CRPS) compliant, high-current and high-density power connection to address varied power supply unit (PSU) and riser cards request from different end applications.
