Heavy-duty PCB connector will carry 60A, says Harting

Kevin Canham describes how a heavy-duty industrial connector can be interfaced to a PCB and being capable of carrying currents up to 60A with no need for any additional components Device connectors are shaped by the environment in which they are used. In simple terms, any industrial electronic device can be considered as a PCB packed into a housing, and based on this approach the connector will always be an integral part of the PCB. The level of integration implicit in this approach defines what is technically possible and economically practical in the overall application. Based on these considerations, the logical development path is to consider the connector from the PCB’s perspective. This manner of integrating the connector into the overall system is logical, but is new in the industrial arena, and is leading to new ways of linking connectors and PCBs. Power electronic...
