Tuesday, 01 July, 2008


Erni has upgraded its hard metric universal power module connectors to include 5-, 6- and 7-pin versions that augment the existing 3-pin power modules and match their current carrying capacity of 18 A per contact (at 20°C).

The connectors are designed to supply power in applications in line with PICMG EXP.0 CompactPCI Express (5- and 7-pin versions).

This completes the family of connectors supplied by the company in accordance with the CompactPCI Express standard and meets requirements on both the signal side (ERmet ZD, ERmet type B8) and the power side.

The angled male multipoint devices are pressfit and designed to supply power to daughtercards in conjunction with 2 mm ERmet connectors conforming to IEC 61076-4-101.

Pre-mating contacts also allow hot-swap. The corresponding straight female multipoint connectors are used on the backplanes.

The modules are compatible with other 2 mm and DIN 41612 connectors, and also meet the requirements for performance grade 1 and comply with RoHS.
