Power connectors for CompactPCI Express

14 May 2008 Interconnection

Erni Electronics has upgraded its hard metric Universal Power Module (UPM) range to include new 5-, 6- and 7-pin versions. These UPMs augment the existing 3-pin power modules and match their current carrying capacity of 18 A per contact.

These new connectors are designed to supply power in applications in line with industry standard PICMG EXP.0 CompactPCI Express (5-pin and 7-pin versions). This completes the family of connectors supplied by Erni in accordance with the CompactPCI Express standard, and meets requirements for both signals (ERmet ZD, ERmet type B8) and power.

The angled male multipoint connectors featuring press-fit technology are designed to supply power to daughter cards in conjunction with 2 mm ERmet connectors conforming to IEC 61076-4-101. Pre-mating contacts also make it possible to enable hot-swap applications. The corresponding straight female multipoint connectors are used on the backplanes. The UPMs are compatible with other 2 mm and DIN 41612 connectors, and also meet the requirements for performance grade 1 and comply with RoHS.
