Up to 40 Amps in or out of your PCB board using a D-sub?

Mixed layout combination d-sub connectors offer the ability to integrate signal contacts, 50 and 75 Ohm coax, high power, and high voltage contacts in a standard d-sub shell.
Within the standard range are combinations enabling 2, 3, 5 or 8 x 10A, 20A, 30A or 40A contacts or HV contacts to be used on their own, without signal contacts.These combination connectors all feature the polarised shielding D shell to prevent mis-mating; high density space saving packaging, and diverse mounting options. For example the 8 x 40Amp contacts sit in a shell size 4 which is the normal 37 way dsub footprint.
D-sub socket and plug connectors are available with solder cup, straight or right angled PCB contacts.

What's more, in line with most of our offerings, IP67 waterproof  power versions are available, both front and rear panel mounting. With this water resistant d-sub system, the back-potted and 'O' ring mounted panel connectors always ensure full IP67 conformity whether mated or unmated and can be further protected by an end cap when unmated. The mating d-sub cable end connector can have a waterproof hood This has a compression ring to stop the ingress of water via the cable entry point at the rear and a sealing skirt at the connector interface. The cable-end connection will not itself meet IP67 when unmated unless a waterproof cap is fitted. Once mated, then the total d-sub connexion interface, not just the panel mount dsub connector will conform to IP67.
Now you didn't think In2Connect would be doing that with a d-sub connector today ~ did you?

Calling all single board computer builders!

ept's Colibri® connector is a shielded, 2-row, SMT interconnect system in 0.5 mm pitch. Both Plug and Receptacle are available with 8 mm stacking height and 220 or 440 pins. Designed to meet requirements of PICMG COM Express®, SFF-SIG Core Express® and nanoETXexpress. Intermatable with available connectors in the market from Tyco and Foxconn. The Colibri can also replace PC104 or Q7 connectors in single board computer builds.

COM Express: A Computer On Module (COM) form factor, is a highly integrated and compact PC that can be used in a design application much like an integrated circuit component. Each COM Express Module integrates core CPU and memory functionality, the common I/O of a PC/AT, USB, audio, graphics (PEG) and Ethernet. All I/O signals are mapped to two high density, low profile connectors on the bottom side of the module.
CoreExpress: CoreExpress, an advanced Computer On Module(COM) specification, was developed to accommodate modern processors like theIntel® Atom™. However, it isnot bound to Intel processors. Its tiny size and low power requirements make itthe ideal base for small, battery-powered, and wearable embedded PC devices.

Additional Colibri versions with flexible pin count as well as multiple stack heights are currently being developed.

Key Features:
Intermatable with connectors in the market
Robust connector design
Receptacle connector with ground pins
Plug connector with ground shield
Multiple stack heights
PICMG COM Express®
SFF-SIG Core Express®
Single board computers PC104
