Circuit-board connection provides simple interface between PCBs and high-current connectors
The Han-Fast Lock circuit-board connector interface can handle currents up to 60A and requires only one contact point to make the connection. Conductor lines are through-plated, and are each provided with a drill hole and supporting point.
Han-Fast Lock is supported by a range of pre-assembled system solutions. For example, a Han Q 4/2 connector with pre-connected litz multi-stranded wires and circuit board contact can be supplied as a pre-tested system for direct connection to the circuit board. Litz wire is a type of cable that is designed to reduce the skin-effect and proximity-effect losses in conductors at frequencies up to about 1 MHz. It consists of many thin wire strands, individually insulated and twisted or woven together, following one of several carefully prescribed patterns that equalise the proportion of the overall length over which each strand is at the outside of the conductor. Litz wires measuring up to 10mm² can be used with the Han-Fast Lock contact.
