New Solution designed for Open Compute Project Open Rack Standard V2.0
48V solutions reduce cost through lower power consumption and simple design
March 20, 2018
HARRISBURG, Pa. – March 20, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, today announced its new 48V bus bar connectors and cable assemblies, designed to meet next-generation 48V application requirements including the Open Compute Project (OCP) Open Rack Standard V2.0 designs. These products will be showcased for the first time at TE’s booth during the OCP Summit in San Jose, CA on March 20 and 21, 2018.
These bus bar connectors and cable assemblies allow for a single vertical bus bar to be used in the rack, simplifying the overall system design and lowering product costs. 48V solutions enable lower power consumption than 12V solutions, and the same connectors and cable assemblies can be used in a variety of data center applications including power, battery backup units and cubby shelves. This versatility allows customers to purchase fewer types of products, simplifying inventory control.
“By moving to 48-volt power distribution, the OCP spec reduces the amount of power consumed to make compliant designs more efficient,” said Phil Gilchrist, CTO TE Data & Devices. “We believe 48-volt power is the way forward for next-generation data center designs and are excited to be supporting these designs with our new bus bar connector and cable assembly products.”
Visit TE at the OCP Summit at booth B23 to see these 48V bus bar connectors and cable assemblies and many other existing products.
