Copper-coated aluminium busbar saves cost over pure copper

Rittal : 18 March, 2013  (New Product)
Rittal’s Cuponal busbar is a copper-coated aluminium busbar available in lengths of 2400m which can offer several advantages over traditional busbar systems.
Copper-coated aluminium busbar saves cost over pure copper

Busbars are usually made from copper, however, savings through lower costs, lighter weight and simplified handling can be made by the use of other materials, such as aluminium and Cuponal, a bi-metal composite material used for electrical connections in switch cabinets, switchboards and distribution boards. A core of aluminum is pressed with a coat of copper, so that both form an inseparable unit. This combines the electrically highly conductivity of copper with the light weight of aluminum.

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