Product Release:

New High Current vertical DC Jack – unique in market

Global Connector Technology (GCT) has released a new high current vertical DC power jacks with 2.50mm centre pin diameter suitable for 5.5mm OD plugs.   The high power parts are shielded and through hole.

High current vertical DC jack DCJ250-15 is unique in the market place in high power format. In DC jack products horizontal is standard, mounted on the edge of a PCB and thru a panel cut out. However, GCT's customers were looking for alternative design configurations, we worked with them to develop a vertical type to solve their design problems.

Customers use high current products to allow fast battery charging in handheld or portable equipment. This may be in a standalone application, or distributing power to a docking device where multiple handheld units are plugged in to charge. The high current jacks are tested and rated at 7A in vertical orientation and 8A in horizontal, within a strict temperature rise of 30°C over ambient.   Full product specifications are available at the GCT website, something you may not find using a competitor product.

All of GCT’s DC power jacks are tested to 5,000 mating cycles and offer an operating temperature range of -20°C to 70°C.

Find drawings, product specifications and 3D models for all parts at gct.co/dc-power-jack. Samples are available next day from GCT's locations worldwide.
