High current dc jacks in novel vertical format
21 February 2016
Global Connector Technology has released a range of high current dc power jacks with 2.50mm centre pin diameters suitable for 5.5mm OD plugs. The high power parts are through-hole and shielded in both horizontal and vertical orientations.
In dc jack products horizontal is standard, mounted on the edge of a PCB and through a panel cut out. However, GCT's customer sought an alternative configuration - a vertical type - which solved a particular design problem.
Customers use high current products to allow fast battery charging in handheld or portable equipment. This may be in a standalone application, or distributing power to a docking device where multiple handheld units are plugged in to charge.
The high current jacks are tested and rated at 7A in vertical orientation and 8A in horizontal, within a strict temperature rise of 30°C over ambient.
All of GCT’s dc power jacks are tested to 5,000 mating cycles and offer an operating temperature range of -20°C to +70°C.
