Zone 1 power connectors suit AdvancedTCA systems



ept offers an ATCA Zone 1 Power Connector with 8 power contacts and 22 or 26 signal contacts. Utilizing a novel selective-plating process, ept maximizes contact reliability with heavy gold over nickel at the contact area and RoHS-compliant tin at the press-fit section. All ept connectors are manufactured with "Tcom press®" -fit technology for a highly-reliable gas-tight interconnect. ept's power connector is designed with a guide pin for ease of mating with a daughter card connector and the insulator bodies are manufactured with UL 94 V-0 rated material. Pre and post mating contacts are provided to allow for a controlled power ramp up and hot-swap capability of the ATCA carrier boards. Our power connectors are fully intermatable with alternative connectors designed to the same standard. Flat-rock insertion tools for the assembling process are also available direct through ept. ept
