New Capacitor-Busbar Power Management Technology

ROLINX® CapEasy and ROLINX® CapPerformance are capacitor-busbar assemblies that combine a unique Power Ring Film Capacitor™ technology from SBE Inc. and the well-known ROLINX Laminated Busbars from Rogers Corporation. The new assembly provides extreme low inductance and high power density. This enables smaller, lighter electronic designs with higher current handling capabilities for a wide range of applications, from automotive electronics to solar-power and wind-power systems.

New Method for Welding Capacitors to Busbars

Dirk Maeyens, Global Director of Sales, Power Electronics Solutions, discusses a new method for connecting capacitors to busbars for use in high-power inverters. Spot welding is used to make a sturdy connection that also reduces the amount of inductance in the connection. The new connection method is particularly appropriate for puck capacitors and is expected to find use in vehicles and solar power conversion.

Rogers zeigt seine neueste Bus-Bar-Power-Lösung

In dieser Episode von PSDtv, erklärt Rogers die Kombination fortschrittlicher Kondensator-Technologie von SBE mit seinen ROLINX Stromschienen auf der APEC 2016. ROLINX nutzt die SBE Power Ring-Film-Kondensator-Technologie, für Kondensator-Busbar-Baugruppen mit extrem geringer Induktivität und hoher Leistungsdichte.

Rogers has introduced an innovative new solution for emerging power electronics applications: RO-LINX PowerCircuit busbars.

Developed to meet the growing power distribution demands in:

  • Electric vehicle (EV) drives
  • Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) drives  and related charging systems
  • Solar power inverters
  • Uninterruptable power supplies (UPS)
  • Industrial motor drives.

RO-LINX PowerCircuit busbars fill the gap between printed circuit board (PCB) power distribution solutions and higher power laminated busbar systems, such as Rogers’ highly regarded RO-LINX laminated busbar products.

Key benefits:

  • Designed for multilayer power distribution for optimal thermal management
  • Can be made in three dimensions (3D) to reduce weight and footprint
  • Conforms to specific engineering designs to maximize efficiency.
  • Eliminates assembly steps at the end user reducing complexity and sources of error

Product Features:

  • Operates in higher power applications, generally at current levels from 500 A to more than 1000 A.
  • Fills the gap in designs for low to medium voltages and current levels
  • Ideal for applications at current levels from 100 to 500 A
  • Can be combined with industrial mounting of functional components such as capacitors, sensors, and IGBTs

Our very own Tom Sleasman from the newly formed Power Electronics Solutions Group was interviewed by Cliff Keys, Editorial Director at Power Systems Design while out at the PCIM Europe 2011 last week.  Tom explains some of the exciting developments happening at Rogers lately, starting with his new division which now combines three key areas of power electronics in Rogers:

Tom explained that the core of all Roger’s Power Electronics products are designed “to get rid of the heat” in power components.  He went on to discuss Roger’s plans in the Hybrid and Electronic Vehicle (EV) markets.  Rogers is already working on an advanced power generation product for release in 2015 – with a goal to reduce weight, size and increase power density so that Hybrids and EVs can be affordable and an option for anyone who wants one.
