These connectors find special application in the Datacom industry regarding server power distribution. A busbar acts as the power source from which the power is transmitted to the server rack. Each server rack has a Power Supply Unit (PSU) that acts as the powerhouse within. The energy from the PSU is distributed to all components through a Power Distribution Unit (PDU). Micro and Mini Power connectors interconnect PSUs and PDUs ensuring proper power transmission and high performance.
