Lightweight copper busbars help reduce costs

19 March 2013

Rittal believes that its Cuponal copper-coated aluminium busbar can offer advantages over traditional busbar systems.

Suitable for installation in standard Rittal tested busbar supporting systems, the busbar is available in sizes and current ratings including 20 x 5mm 235A; 20 x 10mm 363A; 30 x 5mm 328A and 30 x 10mm 493A.

Busbars are usually made from copper. However, savings through lower costs, lighter weight and simplified handling are possible through the use of lighter weight materials such as such as aluminium and Cuponal.

A core of aluminum is pressed with a coat of copper, so that both form an inseparable unit. This allows the positive characteristics of highly conductive copper with the lighter weight of aluminum combined optimally.
