Connector Increases Density And AC Power Options

Samtec offers a higher density signal count and an ac power option in the EXTreme Ten60Power system. The EXTreme Ten60Power header and socket system (ET60T/ET60S Series) is available in both power/signal combinations and power only for increased design flexibility. The latest five-row signal option allows for up to 40 positions in the same form factor as the 3-row option. For higher density without the need for additional space, the five-row design features a 2-mm pitch, versus the three-row on a 2.54-mm pitch.


The ac power option provides greater system flexibility, which is configurable to meet most application specifications. The ac power blades feature a 7.5-mm pitch to accommodate higher voltage levels, while dc power blades are on a 5.5-mm pitch to carry a lower, more constant voltage level. Additionally, the power blades can be selectively loaded to achieve any specific creepage and clearance requirements.
