They also have versatile mounting and termination styles, used for drawer and module applications. Amphenol CoolPower Slim Drawer connectors are available with combinations of up to 8 power and 40 signal contacts in various standard configurations. The CoolBand socket contact provides up to 60A current handling with low T-Rise. With a low-profile 10.8mm dimension off the PCB, Slim Drawer connectors ensure optimal air flow and high performance in restricted height applications such as 1U drawer modules. The offset integrated guide pins provide self-alignment gatherability of up to 1.5mm in all directions, and ensure correct mating orientation is maintained.
Slim Drawer connectors are available in vertical and right angle configurations, PCB mount or wire termination, with float mount capability, allowing many applications including board to board (mezzanine, card extender and right angle), panel to panel or board to panel, and wire to board or wire to panel. Additional optional features such as metal guide posts for enhanced gatherability, Make-First, Break-Last contacts for hot plug capability, choice of contact plating (gold, silver) and modular tooling for easy creation of new configurations, make this one of the most versatile mixed power and signal interconnects available for demanding, high reliability applications.
