SINGAPORE: FCI announced the release of the BarKlip I/O power connector.
The BarKlip I/O connector, rated for up to 200Amps/contact per UL & CSA criteria, offers improved electrical performance and long-term reliability compared with alternative designs.
Designed to meet the Open Compute (OCP) Power Distribution Architecture Standard, the connector is designed to connect with a system rack bar to achieve a direct pluggable connection to an uninsulated busbar. The connection generates low energy loss with a maximum resistance of only 0.2mOhms per contact.
The BarKlip I/O Connector features 14 fully independent cantilevered beams, which provide a true compliant spring to adjust for variations in busbar alignment and surface finish. In addition, the BarKlip™ I/O connector is a floating panel mount design.
