High-Current Contacting of Blade-Connectors
You are looking to use a flat blade connector in a high current application? But it is difficult to apply a front face with sufficient contact surface. For this reason many applications use clamps. This solution is not very durable and it has the risk of damaging the surface of the blade connector.
No scratching of the surface
FEINMETALL has developed a special contact probe for high current contacting flat blade connectors. A slotted and twist proof contact head is moved over the contact blade. The compression of the plunger leads to a twist movement. So the contact head is getting a good and smooth contact to the test item without damaging or scratching the surface.
With a single probe of the new family F762...C currents up to 40 A can be realized, depending on the ambient temperature. By using several probes in parallel, even higher currents are possible.
