Methode laminated bus bars are engineered to provide our customers with both electrical and mechanical performance benefits. Minimizing inductance and electrical noise, our multi conductor bus bars are critical in power-conversion applications and meet stringent partial-discharge requirements for inverter and traction-drive applications. Mechanically, our bus bars are designed to make precise connections to capacitor banks, IGBT power semiconductors, diodes, fuses, inductors and other components. Our bus bars can be designed and manufactured in any of our three global facilities.
- Low inductance, minimal voltage drop and fast installation
- Insulation and plating options available for demanding environments including defense and aerospace
- Choice of aluminum or copper-alloy material to meet weight, conductivity and cost goals
- Utilize laminated bus bar as mounting structure for electrical components such as capacitors and fuses
- Mount other complimentary Methode PSG products to the bus bar such as power connectors and power cabling
Custom EngineeringExpert applications and design engineers are available to assist with our customers' designs worldwide.
High reliabilityWith fewer components and interconnects than traditional cable assemblies, Methode's laminated bus bars drastically limit opportunities for error.
High power densityOur laminated bus bars handle more power in less space, efficiently routing the power to meet our customers' requirements.
