It also provides a maximum current-to-space ratio packaged in a low profile, 10.00mm (.394”) tall housing design that enhances system airflow. The EXTreme Ten60Power family’s high-current contact blades in DC (5.50mm) and AC (7.50mm) spacing options provide design flexibility. Power blades are rated up to 60.0A per blade, providing up to 260.0A per linear inch of board real estate.
