ERNI Electronics has upgraded its hard metric Universal Power Module (UPM) to include new 5-, 6- and 7-pin versions which are available from Erntec .
These Universal Power Modules augment the existing 3-pin power modules and match their current carrying capacity of 18 A per contact (at 20°C).
These new high-performance connectors are designed to supply power in applications in line with industry standard PICMG EXP.0 CompactPCI Express (5-pin and 7-pin versions).
This completes the family of connectors supplied by ERNI in accordance with the CompactPCI Express standard and meets requirements on both the signal side (ERmet ZD, ERmet type B8) and the power side.
The angled male multipoint connectors featuring pressfit technology are designed to supply power to daughter cards in conjunction with 2mm ERmet connectors conforming to IEC 61076-4-101.
Pre-mating contacts also make it possible to enable hot-swap applications. The corresponding straight female multipoint connectors are used on the backplanes. The Universal Power Modules are compatible with other 2mm and DIN 41612 connectors and also meet the requirements for performance grade 1 and comply with RoHS.
