Molex's EXTreme Guardian header and cable assemblies, previously named EXTreme Power Interconnect (EPIC), feature small package sizes with a centerline pitch of 11 mm. The system supports up to 80 A per contact, provides good shielding characteristics in EMI-sensitive environments, and features hot-plugging capabilities and UL safety features.
Headers are available in 2-circuit, single-flanged and 3-circuit, dual-flanged versions. Cable assemblies are available in 3-circuit, straight, shielded and unshielded versions for high-voltage applications and are UL touch-safe. Additionally, the 2-circuit cabled solutions include a straight, unshielded cable assembly; a right- angled, right-entry and left-entry unshielded version, as well as a left-entry shielded variant for space-saving connections to servers installed in confined spaces.
