High Power Card Edge (HPCE™)

FCI's High Power Card Edge (HPCE™) connector is a next generation power card edge connector for demanding applications requiring high linear current density and low power loss. HPCE™ offers a low profile height (2.8mm for straddle mount and 7.5mm for right angle) and is based on very cost effective and highly reliable stamped-and-formed power contact technology similar to other power solutions from FCI.

The HPCE™connector incorporates an innovative power contact and housing design that permits a more compact and lower profile package for demanding AC and DC power supply and/or add-in card applications. HPCE's low profile height (for maximized airflow), significantly increased linear current density and low contact resistance characteristics are ideal for next generation 1U/2U servers, storage enclosures, telecommunications equipment and datacom/networking equipment.

The HPCE™connector is available with power and signal contacts integrated into a single molded housing for power distribution and power control. Similar to other FCI power solutions, HPCE™ is modularly tooled making the product highly configurable in terms of the number and placement of the power and signal contacts for custom power needs.
