PowerPlane Bus Bar Power Connectors

Molex's PowerPlane Bus Bar Power Connectors deliver high-current performance along with various configurations and feature options, making them applicable for a wide range of power-distribution. The PowerPlane Bus Bar Power Connector family includes a 320.0A Vertical Bus Bar Connector (Series 45711), 180.0A Bus Bar Receptacle (Series Molex PowerPlane Bus Bar Power Connectors172201) and 60.0A Low-Profile Bus Bar Connector (Series 173708).

OEMs across many industries require higher current from power sources and usually, high-power connectors can be bulky and create thermal management problems. Molex's PowerPlane Bus Bar Power Connectors provide compact, high-current PCB-to-bus-bar connectivity. In its small design, Molex's connectors support airflow, which aids in thermal management. With a variety of interfaces, the Bus Bar Power Connectors offer flexibility across a number of industries. The PowerPlane Bus Bar Connectors also eliminate the need to wire connectors, which prevents end-product failure and reduces material and labor costs.

Features & Benefits:

320.0A - Series 45711

  • Float-mount design available allows up to 6° of misalignment, facilitating blind mating in deep racks
  • Mating with a standard 25.40 by 3.18mm thick bus bar tab allows mating with de facto output blades for typical power supply applications
  • Isolated left and right contacts meet true hot-plugging requirements
  • Low voltage drop for minimal heat generation
  • Dimensionally compatible with competitive connectors
  • Mounts to a bus bar via two holes using customer supplied machine screws
  • Press-fit and through-hole versions are available to meet different applications needs

180.0A - Series 172201

  • Right-angle entry of the connector mates with a standard 25.40 by 3.18mm thick bus bar tab facilitates mating with de facto output blades for typical power supply applications
  • Screw-mount versions available to securely fasten connector to PCB

60.0A - Series 173708

  • Press-fit and through-hole versions available to meet different application needs
  • Versions for 3.00, 3.18 and 6.00mm bus bar thicknesses offers design flexibility
  • Endures 200 mating cycles and provides durability for high-mating cycle applications
  • Low-profile design (13.61mm) delivers a high-current rating in a small package
  • Gold-plating on mating surfaces ensures electrical performance enables high mating cycles
