"Commercial UAV/UAS manufacturers are transitioning from hobbyist-style wired battery connections to more elegant, compact, robust and higher-reliability board-to-board, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connectors," said Jeff Torres, global product manager, Molex. "We have a complete product set to offer this rapidly growing industry. For example, the compact size and high current density of EXTreme Power™ products make them a proven, reliable solution for battery-cartridge applications, and the Fit Families of Molex connectors offer a great fit for rotor applications. Also, Molex is developing new products designed specifically for the UAV/UAS industry."

Molex EXTreme Power connectors, which will be displayed at booth 926, are ideal for next-gen commercial UAV battery applications. The line includes:

EXTreme LPHPower™ System, which offers 30.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and a 7.50mm connector-profile height while facilitating optimum airflow in the battery cartridge. Its hybrid power and signal circuit layout, with integrated alignment guides, conforms to a variety of electrical requirements.
EXTreme Ten60Power™ System, which provides 30.0A and 60.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and enhances design flexibility with both low- and high-power contacts in a configurable design.
EXTreme EnergetiC™ System, which provides 50.0A and 100.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and enhances design flexibility with both low- and high-power contacts in a configurable design.
EXTreme PowerMass™ System, which offers 40.0A, 80.0A, and 150.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and maximizes power delivery from the battery via extremely high-current blades.
Other Molex products to be featured in booth 926 include Ultra-Fit™ and Mega-Fit® Power Connectors, which deliver cutting-edge current density at 14.0A and 23.0A per circuit respectively; the PicoBlade™ Connector System for high-density harness applications; and Micro-USB, a USB Shielded I/O Cable Assembly.
