Delivering on medical distribution

FCI has developed a power distribution connector for medical equipment such as automated medication dispensers. PwrBlade connectors handle both power and high-speed data signals enabling advanced medication inventory management, patient monitoring and medical record management. These systems help eliminate human error in the distribution of medicine to patients.

By satisfying both power and data requirements in one device, PwrBlade can simplify equipment design. It also offers various mating options, making it ideal for medical equipment manufacturers that need vertical and/or coplanar mating options in a single design.

PwrBlade connectors feature a contact system designed to handle the high force required for plugging and unplugging into a chassis. They also boast molded guideposts on the header for alignment during blind mating.

Available in a variety of configurations with either solder or press-fit board termination, the connectors feature up to 20 power contacts with zero to 148 signal contacts and three levels of sequencing of power and signals.
