Switchcraft High Amperage Jacks and Plugs

SWI img 1 3-9-21     Up to 11 A!

Switchcraft has the highest current carrying DC Input Power Jacks on the market, with over twice the current capacity of the competition. The industry has been limited to 5A for these products because no higher options were available. Now Switchcraft has opened the doors to creative new applications. These small diameter switching jacks and plugs are a great alternative to larger connectors.

So, what can you do with this?

If your AC plug-in product uses between 5 and 11 Amps, you would be able to remove the power supply from the enclosure or case, downsizing the case. You could likely remove the fan since the power supply won’t be warming things up in there. The UL would come on the wall plug-in power supply already, so you wouldn’t have to deal with those folks much. The time to market would be faster too, plus you would likely have a lower cost overall.

Is that revolutionary or what?
