Lane Electronics adds Positronic Goldfish power connectors 

High-reliability power and signal connectors in the Positronic Goldfish range are now available from Lane Electronics. 

The GFSH range offers designers hot-swap capability (mating and un-mating while powered up) with secure blind mating and allow for up to 2mm mis-alignment. The compact connectors have a combination of layouts for the connectors which are designed for high reliability power delivery and control systems.

Users may specify combinations of 20, 30, 35 and 50A solid machined contacts in a mixed density package. Multiple contact sizes allow the mixing of AC/DC input, signal, and DC distributed output in a single compact connector. Goldfish connectors offer six contact options with touch-safe recessed female contacts and large surface area (LSA) contacts combining energy saving with low contact resistance. The precision copper alloy gold plated contacts are rated at 500 mating cycles.

The larger GG series of connectors provides a similar modular approach of multiple contact sizes in one connector and are available in larger contact sizes up to 200A and 1000 mating cycles. 

Options across both GFSH and GG ranges include sequential mating, solder PCB mount, crimp, press-fit and busbar terminations and a choice of panel mount, float mount or jackscrew fixing and a wide variety of cable clamp hood accessories.

Lane Electronics supplies key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub-miniature, back shells and adapters, D connectors, aerospace, test and measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications. 

Lane Electronics can supply a wide range of high power, D-Sub, rectangular, modular and circular Positronic connectors suitable for industrial, medical, aerospace and military applications.
