EnerBee Power Connectors Target High-Current Demanding Apps

10 August 2015

Industrial power supply, servers, medical devices and home electronics are the applications that will benefit from the Hirose EnerBee family of connectors. Combining a compact space-saving design with high-end performance and current ratings from 5A to 50A, the connectors range from 3.3mm to 10.16mm in pitch. They are available in board-to-board and wire-to-board versions, and a plastic relay-type connector ideal for replacing terminal blocks.

Features include a multiple contact point design with a positive mechanical lock mechanism to ensure reliable and secure connectivity in harsh environments. Many of the PCB connectors are designed to prevent potting material from wicking into the terminal contact area.

EnerBee connectors include:
