Ideal for use in server and data storage systems, cellular infrastructure equipment as well as battery systems, the PowerBlok WTB is a flexible and economical solution for reliably delivering high current internal connections between cables and PCBs.

The RoHS compliant PowerBlok WTB uses Amphenol's patented and reliable RADSOK technology that attains higher current ratings and lower contact resistance in comparison to other contact methods on the market.

Technical Specifications:

  • Compact 15.7 mm x 15.7 mm footprint
  • Up to 70 A delivered to the PCB
  • High current single-point connection
  • Patented RADSOK technology
