Methode’s power connectors are engineered for high current and high efficiency, addressing the demanding requirements of industries such as defense & aerospace, data center & communications, automotive, industrial, & renewable energy. The patented PowerBud® contact technology brings superior electrical performance with low resistance and voltage drop, and mechanical advantages such as low insertion/extraction force and high cycle life. PowerBud® power contact technology is found in the EBC (Embedded Bud Connector), the MQUAD, and the J1772 Electric Vehicle Charge Coupler. Methode also offers Louver & Clip contact systems such as the Open Compute Project (OCP) Connector, MCC Bus Bar Clip Connector, and in Custom Louver Power Connectors.
Our Power Connection & Contact Solutions
Our power connectors overcome limitations of conventional power connectors with low insertion forces, low resistance and a long life cycle.
The Open Compute Project Connector (OCP Connector) is a blind-mate bus bar clip compatible with the Open Rack platform. The Open Rack is designed to maximize efficiency of large scale data center rack deployments taking into consideration the interdependencies in the data center. CONNECTOR SELECTION GUIDE
The MCC Bus Bar Clip Connector is a bus bar to bus bar connector having isolated opposing interconnects for two pole connections or combined single pole 400 Amp capacity. CONNECTOR SELECTION GUIDE
Methode’s electric vehicle charge coupler connector for SAE J1772 charging is UL & CSA recognized and utilizes patented PowerBud® contact technology for superior electrical and mechanical performance. CONNECTOR SELECTION GUIDE
Utilizing the efficient high-current design of the PowerBud contact technology, the EBC (Embedded Bud Connector) carries high power in a small package and is specifically designed for a press-fit connection on bus bars, printed circuit boards, and FusionLug terminations.
The MQuad Power Connector is a blind mate wire-to-wire, bus-to-bus connector. Contacts can be routed for individual 4-pole connections or combined for single pole higher amperage capacity.
Louver contacts provide a robust interface for high-power blade-type interfaces and can be configured for use in bus bars, power PCBs, connectors and cabling terminations. CONNECTOR SELECTION GUIDE
