EXTreme Guardian header and cable assemblies, previously named EXTreme Power Interconnect (EPIC), features small package sizes with a centerline pitch of 11.00mm. The system supports up to 80.0A per contact, provides good shielding characteristics in EMI-sensitive environments, features hot-plugging capabilities and UL safety features.
Headers are available in 2-circuit, single-flanged and 3-circuit, dual-flanged versions. Cable assemblies are available in 3-circuit, straight, shielded and unshielded versions for high-voltage applications and are UL touch-safe. Additionally, the 2-circuit cabled solutions include a straight, unshielded cable assembly; a right-angled, right-entry and left-entry unshielded version, as well as a left-entry shielded variant for space-saving connections to servers installed in confined spaces.
High-current density per inch supports up to 80.0A per blade (180.0A per inch)
Redundant contact design handles up to 600V and supports AC or DC high-voltage applications with the lowest feasible voltage drop and I2R losses
Small centerline spacing of 11.00mm reduces PCB footprint compared to legacy power products
Recessed terminals, First-Mate-Last-Break allow hot-swapping of power unites and reduce network downtime
Gold or tin contact plating provides flexibility to suit customer applications; gold plating provides low interface resistance
UL and CSA certification meet all accredited agency safety requirement and approvals
