An in-depth review of the busbar plating thickness requirements to show the possible benefit of using lubricants and to also confirm if the plating thickness can be reduced.  There will be multiple test methods used in this review which include insertion force test, insertion wear test, transportation test and fretting test.  Conclusions and results from each test will be shared with the community in this joint presentation.

We have lubricants that have helped server OEMs resolve power failures due to the contact wear and corrosion at the power clip - bus bar interface. We are investigating how this applies to the OCP rack and power silver plated bus bar standard.
