Mersen MHi-T High Temperature Bus Bars

October 27, 2020

Using a combination of polyaramid dielectric insulation and high temperature adhesive, MHi-T High Temperature Bus Bars are designed to respond to increased temperature rises in Wide Band Gap technology systems. While traditional laminated bus bars are limited to a working temperature of 105°C, Mersen’s MHi-T bus bars allow for increased working temperatures up to 180°C.

Today’s customers turn to Wide Band Gap (WBG) technologies such as SiC and GaN based power modules to increase power densities in their drives and inverters designs. Due to their inherent nature, WBG modules introduce an increased level of heat into their laminated bus bars connectors. Increased temperature rises on standard laminated bus bars may cause partial or complete breakdown of the bonding agent (glue) of the insulation, causing the insulation to lift and separate from the conductor surface, creating potential unsafe shock or short circuit faults. Mersen MHi-T laminated bus bars address this increased temperature rise in WBG power modules with higher temperature tolerances.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
