As the depletion of fossil fuels drives our attention toward alternative energy sources to power our daily lives, Eldre’s
can be found in new, but familiar territory.
Whether it is in Solar, Wind Power, or Fuel Cells, the creation of DC energy feeds directly through Eldre’s low inductance laminated bus bars into an IGBT and Capacitor circuit, delivering the safe and efficient power our customers demand.
Designed with automotive reliability in mind, this two-layer, laminated bus bar joins parallel rows of batteries together in a hybrid vehicle application.
Size: 3” x 4” | Voltage: 60VDC | Thickness: .093” | Current: 40A
Multilayer, laminated bus bar used in a Photovoltaic Inverter application. Diodes, IGBYs, and Electrolytic Capacitors are all easily interconnected in one compact power distribution structure.
Size: 16” x 28” | Voltage: 48VDC | Current: 240A | Conductors: .050”
This rugged two-layer, four conductor laminated bus bar is production built for a Hybrid Transit Inverter application. The perimeter is a laminated, sealed-edge construction, and the design shows the simplicity of combining electrolytic capacitors, resistor networks, and IGBT’s into a single, compact bus bar system.
Size: 10” x 11” | Thickness: .125” | Voltage: 1015VDC | Current: 280A
This laminated bus bar design demonstrates excellent packaging efficiency. By designing all electrical connection points for the IGBT’s, Capacitors, I/O, and monitoring devices in one clean bus bar, overall system reliability is improved and optimal electrical performance is assured.
Size: 16” x 28” | Thickness: .093” & .25” | Voltage: 480V | Current: 240A
One of the hallmarks for Alternate Energy applications is packaging components in tight confines. This laminated bus bar packs nine electrolytic capacitors in a tight package in between two rows of IGBTs. This arrangement is a natural fit for laminated bus bar technology.
Size: 4” x 8” x 24” | Conductors: .040” each | Voltage: 400 VDC | Current: 350A
Fuel cells and hybrid electric vehicles require rugged, reliable power distribution. Heavy duty construction with epoxy powder coating as a dielectric allows this laminated busbar design to perform to specifications in harsh environments.
