Bus Bar

SVM - Bus Bar

Various Types:

Laminated Bus bars

Powder coated Bus bars

Molded Bus bars

Description:

Power Electronics often requires very low inductive interconnections, especially in the medium-high power range. The most common solution to reach stray inductance values around some tens of Nano-henries and even below is to use a bus-bar structure. This "simple" assembly of copper sheets is intended to link several points of the structure, and to stay as Equi-potential as possible.

The role of a bus-bar is to link several points of a power electronics converter: capacitors, semiconductors and often to achieve series or parallel association of these devices.

Standards:

IEC 60601-1, ASTM D 1062, ANSI C37.20, BS159

Specialization:

Laminated Bus bars:
