Molex introduces Coeur CST high-current interconnect system

Molex is making available the Coeur CST High-Current Interconnect System, which features a new float design that accommodates pin to socket misalignment allowing for ease of mating PCB to PCB, PCB to bus bar, or bus bar to bus bar without the risk of overstress damage to the socket contact system.

In addition to its float design providing 1.00mm of axial float, the Coeur CST system is also compact in size allowing for a mated board-to-board profile as low as 5.00mm that doesn’t require a large protrusion above or below the mated boards. The system also offers sockets with or without the float feature.

Flexible and scalable, the Coeur CST High-Current Interconnect System is able to deliver between 30.0 and 200.0A of current and offers a wide range of configurations to accommodate PCB, bus bar, and wire solutions. Multiple contact beams optimize electrical performance. The same common contact design is used on all CST form factor sockets (3.40, 6.00, and 8.00mm).

The wire-to-board and wire-to-wire Coeur CST solutions will include male and female crimp contacts, single and multi-row housings with features such as touch safe, mate-first-last-break option, positive latching, panel-mount options, vertical and right-angle configurations, and PCB and bus bar mounting header options.
