Positronic Eclipse Series – Innovative Hybrid Power and Signal Connectors
The Eclipse hybrid power and signal series is an innovative line of connectors that combine machined power contacts with stamped signals. The machined power contacts offer world-class current density paired with a cost-effective formed signal contact cluster. This design provides reliable performance without the cost implications. Positronic is a global manufacturer of highly reliable electronic connectors known for distinctive core capabilities, including solid machined contacts with low resistance/high conductivity for use in standard and quick-turn custom connectors. Positronic is known globally for the unique ability to quickly modify existing designs or create new products to meet application-specific needs.
Positronic power connectors, such as the Eclipse, are widely known to offer the highest degree of linear current density in the marketplace. This 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 machined contacts are fundamental to the Eclipse’s power density, machining is not required for the signal contact cluster. In some applications, machining the signal contacts results in unnecessary cost escalation without the added value to the application. The Eclipse solves this challenge!
Eclipse characteristics include:
- Machined power contacts combined with formed signal contacts
- 250 mating cycles minimum
- Halogen-free insulator
- Low-profile, 11mm height
The strong and versatile Eclipse is ideal for use in power supplies, server equipment and related applications. Pricing and availability are available by contacting any Positronic office around the world.
