MULTI-BEAM XL Cable Receptacles, TE Connectivity

Posted by rangelina


December 14th 2012

Multi-Beam XL™ from TE Connectivity has become a de-facto standard for modular hot-swappable power distribution connection systems. The heart of the MULTI-BEAM XL connector is the unique power contact which offers a current rating up to 43 Amps per contact, (at 30 degree C temp-rise), lower contact resistance (only 0.7 milli-ohms at end-of- life conditions) and lower mating forces than alternative designs.

The product is available in both board-to-board and cable-to-board designs. Board-to-board versions are available in solder or press-fit pcb terminations and cable-to-board versions terminate up to 8 AWG, 600V wire. Both versions are complimented by the highly modular production platform. Many custom variations in number of power and/or signal contacts can now be produced with little or no tooling investment required from the customer. Multi-Beam XL™ provides eXpandable Length and eXtra Long wipe with a minimum of 0.100 inches wipe on the shortest signal contacts and 0.200 inches of wipe on the long (make-first-break-last) power contacts.
