FCI, Singapore, released BarGuide Power Connectors to meet the ever evolving demands for high power distribution in high density packaging. They are used to provide high amperage connections between busbars and circuit boards.
BarGuide connectors provide a current carrying capability from 60-250 A, based on specific pins’ size. They are available with press fit PCB tails for mounting on both circuit boards and busbars and come in vertical and right angle designs that can provide parallel or perpendicular interconnections.
These connectors provide a high current, low power loss interconnection with a quick connect/disconnect function for space constrained board to board, board to busbar, and busbar to busbar power distribution applications. They use a high-performance spring that provides a large surface contact area, thus ensuring small voltage loss, minimum heat generation, and low insertion and extraction forces. FCI’s proprietary AGT plating technology adds an additional benefit to customers by providing maximum conductivity and long-term reliability.
