TE Connectivity's Elcon mini power connectors and cable assemblies deliver up to 400V rating and up to 40A per contact in a two-position, 8mm high form factor, which is roughly the size of a popular HDMI connector.

The Elcon mini power connectors and cable assemblies are engineered to address many power and space requirements with 2-, 3-, 4- and 6- (2x3)- position configurations, while providing a positive metal latch connection, low resistance, and highly reliable interface, according to the company. Cable assembly solutions from TE also offer high-flex and customisable break-out options for easy routing and installation.

In addition to power input/output (I/O) and distribution applications, Elcon mini connectors and cable assemblies are an internal wire-to-board power solution for the Open Compute Project (OCP) “Wedge” (top-of-rack) switches. The OCP is developing standard data centre hardware designs that manufacturers can use to build highly compatible and scalable products with minimal development costs.
