FCI has recently announced its BarGuide power connectors geared to offer high amperage connections between busbars and circuit boards. The solutions support currents from 60-250A, based on specific pins' size, indicated the company.

According to FCI, the connectors use a high performance spring that provides a large surface contact area, thus limiting small voltage loss, minimum heat generation, and low insertion and extraction forces.

The units 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.

FCI also added its proprietary AGT plating technology to the connectors to ensure maximum conductivity and long-term reliability.
