Hello, SI Experts

I,m concerning how much power pin have to be assigned to meet the power
requirement of a card. "Contact current rating" of the catalog of a
connector is the only clue for me to decide the number of power pin in
the connector.

Assume the power requirement of the card is 50 watts, supply voltage 5
volts and the contact current rating 1 A. Then 10 power pin pairs (VCC,
GND) are enough?

Could anyone tell me the meaning of "Contact Current Rating" and how to
meet power requirement of the card?

Thanks in advance
