Busbars

Braided Busbars

Braided Busbars are generally more agricultural in nature, but do not give quite the same performance as other flexible Bars. However, they can be more cost effective and allow for design variances. They are also used where vibration and movement occur between the terminals. These Busbars are manufactured with Copper wire which is weaved to form a braid. A tube is then attached to each end and compressed to create a connection point.

Braided Busbars

Flexible Busbars

Flexible Busbars are made by a unique endless loop system, they have many technical advantages over other styles of flexible Busbars in their capability and performance. They are made from thin usually soft copper laminates which are then wound and compressed to thickness to give the relevant cross-sectional area required to carry the desired current.
