The Power Distribution Systems Division of Rodgers Corporation (Chandler, AZ) has announced its RO-LINX PowerCircuit busbars, which were developed to meet the growing power distribution demands in electric vehicle (EV) drives, hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) drives and related charging systems. According to the company, the busbars combine the performance features of power PCBs and laminated busbars. Additional features include:
- The ability to handle current levels from 500 A to more than 1,000 A.
- A closed mold design that uses carefully-selected materials for additional reliability in applications subject to high vibration and temperature cycling, such as those found in EV drives.
- Compatibility with a number of interconnect systems, including press fit, bolted-on, riveted, and common soldering methods.
- Excellent thermal management properties, according to the company, which reduces dangerous partial discharge and transients.
