SAN JOSE, Calif.–(Business Wire)–
Methode Power Solutions Group announces an innovative new class of patent
pending power connectors named “PowerBud”TM that successfully overcomes key

size, a feat that counters conventional wisdom. The resulting connectors exhibit
lower insertion force, lower temperature rise, lower power loss and higher cycle
life than conventional high current connectors.
The PowerBud connector is initially available in a single-contact form called
the EBC (Embedded PowerBud Connector), with knurled outer side walls allowing
direct press-fit insertion into busbars, printed …
