Wire-Cable System

The PowerStrip/15 Cable Assembly (MPSS Series) is a discrete wire-cable system designed for space-limited applications. The Series is available with two, three, four, six, or eight dual leaf-blade contacts on a narrow 5.00 mm (0.197-in.) centerline. When mated with PowerStrip/25 High Power Terminals (MPT Series), the system has a current-carrying capacity of 14.4 A/contact at 30°C (with eight positions powered and 14-awg cable).

The system comes in double or single-ended assemblies with 14 or 16-awg discrete-wire coax cable, a choice of assembled lengths, a positive latching system for increased unmating force, and polarized guide posts for blind mating.
