New Power-to-Board Connector from Amphenol Provides High Current Single-Point of Connection

PowerBlok WTB provides current up to 70 A to a PCB

Sidney, N.Y. February 2014 – Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, has expanded its line of RADSOK high current connectors with a new power-to-board connector.  PowerBlok WTB (wire-to-board), a simple and cost effective latching connector, provides a high current single-point of connection to a PCB of up to 70 A.

Ideal for use in server and data storage systems, cellular infrastructure equipment as well as battery systems, the PowerBlok WTB is a flexible and economical solution for reliably delivering high current internal connections between cables and PCBs.

The compact PowerBlok WTB’s stamped and formed receptacle provides multiple points of contact for even current transfer to the PCB.

Amphenol’s PowerBlok WTB allows users to crimp a wire directly onto the contact and bring power to the board. Its low profile, right angle exit has a less than 1/2" mated height.  No special crimp tools are required with this connector, which offers a small footprint of 15.7 mm squared.

The RoHS compliant PowerBlok WTB uses Amphenol’s patented and reliable RADSOK technology that attains higher current ratings and lower contact resistance in comparison to other contact methods on the market.

Technical Specifications:

·         Compact 15.7 mm x 15.7 mm footprint

·         Up to 70 A delivered to the PCB

·         High current single-point connection

·         Patented RADSOK technology
