Power connector system

Molex Inc. has introduced the Super Sabre Power Connector System for all high-current applications where flexible wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations are required. Delivering 34.0 A per blade in a 7.50-mm pitch connector and withstanding up to 125°C (257°F) operating temperatures (USCAR-2, level 3), Super Sabre power connectors are well-suited to automotive and commercial vehicle applications as well as the datacom and industrial control industries. Based on proven Sabre Connector multi-beam technology and optimized for 10 to 12 AWG wires, the power connector system is compatible with lead-free wave soldering and reflow soldering processes. Silver-plated, high-conductivity alloy terminals are used to minimize fretting corrosion concerns. The flat-blade terminal design with four independent points of electrical contact offers redundant, secondary current paths for long-term performance and reliability. The company claims that the design provides a more reliable electrical connection than other terminal styles. The terminals are fully isolated on both mating sides to provide maximum protection against damage or shorting. Positive latch and Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) features prevent terminal backout.
