Types of Power Cables at Amphenol
OCP ORv3 AC Input Connector and Cable Assemblies
Created in accordance with the OCP's (Open Compute Project) V3 Universal Input power distribution architecture standards, Amphenol’s AC input cable assemblies are a convenient solution to channel power from the grid to the power shelf inside of a V3 rack.
PwrBlade® Mini Cable-to-Board aids in supplying high current in a low-profile. This I/O (Input/Output) cable solution is a versatile option for a wide variety of applications including data storage, industrial power distribution, robotics, and more. PwrBlade® Mini I/O comes equipped with several board retention options.
PwrBlade+™ supports a wide variety of high-power, low-power, and signal options in a single housing. There are three contacts to choose from in this model: High Power (60A), Low Power (25A), and Signal (3A).
The PwrBlade® cable connectors were originally created to be compatible with PwrBlade® board-mounted headers that can be either vertical or right-angled. With this expansion, the PwrBlade® connectors can now be used in a more extensive range of applications that involve connecting power distribution subassemblies and power supplies beyond board-to-board scenarios.
Pwr TwinBlade® cable system is specifically intended for applications that require the supply of high current. These connectors incorporate a reliable contact system with touch-proof design, enabling them to support currents up to 100A per contact. Additionally, the newly added sensing contacts can help prevent damage caused by hot-plug conditions.
The PwrMAX® I/O connector is known for its high-density power and signal capabilities. It has the ability to carry up to 50A per contact, and up to 100A per column. Additionally, the connector offers a range of wire options, including 6AWG to 8AWG for power contacts and 22AWG for signal contacts.
Pwr Profile Range
Pwr Profile+® I/O features a maximum current rating of 34A per contact. It can be used for applications that require a compact arrangement with a high current density. Its low-profile design allows for more airflow and aids in system cooling in compact applications.
The Pwr Profile® range is ideal for applications that demand higher power density in limited spaces, such as chassis-based equipment platforms. Its inventive power contact design is optimized for cable-to-board connections and boasts a reduced profile. The maximum current rating for two power contacts is 20A per contact. It is also equipped with polarization features that ensure proper mating, making it a reliable and convenient option for power applications.
HPCE® Cable Assembly
HPCE® cable assembly (High Power Card Edge) is a power cable assembly designed for demanding applications that require high linear current density and low power loss. It is available in both one-piece (cable to card edge) and two-piece (cable to header) configurations.
Perma-Tap® Power Cable Assembly
Perma-Tap® Power Cable Assemblies provide a compact and secure power delivery solution. Perma-Tap® is press-fit directly into a PCB and allows for wire options ranging from 12AWG to 8AWG.
