Description

Hybrid Power and Signal Connectors – Positronic

  • Positronic power connectors are widely known to offer the highest degree of linear current density in the marketplace. That is achieved by 1 selecting copper alloys low in resistance; 2 by the precision machining process; and 3 by the female contact geometry that provides excellent normal force against the male contact.
  • Although the machining process is fundamental to the Eclipse’s power density, machining may not be required for the signal contact cluster. In some applications, this results in unnecessary cost escalation without the added value to the application. The Eclipse is the solution. It offers machined power contacts for world-class current density paired with a cost-effective signal contact cluster. Retain the performance without the cost implications.
