MULTI-BEAM XLE Power Connector System, TE Connectivity

Posted by rangelina


December 21st 2012

TE Connectivity is pleased to introduce a new product family of connectors called The MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors, the latest addition to the MULTI-BEAM XL power connector product family. MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors feature a new 3-beam contact, made from a thicker / higher conductivity material than the original single beam or 4-beam designs.

The new 3-beam design allows for greater angular mis-alignment between mating connectors and offers a lower mating force. In addition, MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors offer a slimmer housing design that reduces the overall pcb footprint and has the option of using a low power contact - the industry proven Universal Power Module (UPM) contact.

The new contacts and housing design allows more power in the same footprint - over 35% more current in the same space. MULTI-BEAM XLE connectors are as modular as the original MULTI-BEAM XL connectors in that they can be designed to fit specific customer needs.
