Modular power/signal connector maximizes SWaP reduction

LSP_2Positronic Industries is proud to announce the addition of an 8.20mm low-profile version to the popular Scorpion power/signal connector series. The Scorpion product is unique for three key reasons: 1) Its modular tool design allows for a nearly limitless variety of customer-defined contact arrangements; 2) The molding process yields a one-piece insulator; and 3) The customer can define the connector width as long as the maximum envelope of 101.00mm is not exceeded.

Due to the modular tooling, customers can achieve optimum size, weight and power by configuring a power/signal connector from a wide selection of modules. In the low-profile version, the module options include size 12 contacts, size 20 contacts, size 22 contacts and blanks/spacers. Contacts are rated up to 55 amps for size 12, 12 amps for size 20 and 3 amps for size 22 contacts. Contact resistance values are as low as 1 milliohm for standard conductivity contacts and 0.7 milliohms for high conductivity contacts. The blanks/spacers allow the user to space power and signal contacts to tailor creepage and clearance values to meet design criteria. Contact terminations include board-to-board, board-to-cable, cable-to-cable, and panel mount options. Additional features/accessories include ventilation slots in the connector housing, integral blind mate system, integral locking system, float mounts, panel mount clips, and board locks. The Scorpion Series is the solution to maximize power throughput and minimize space claim.
