Rogers Corporation’s (NYSE:ROG) Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group will be a major exhibitor at one of the leading global events for advanced battery technologies and related products. The Battery Show 2017 conference and exhibition is scheduled for September 12-14, 2017 in the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. Exhibitors will be showcasing advanced battery technology for electric (EV) & hybrid vehicles (HEV), utility & renewable energy support, portable electronics, medical technology, military and telecommunications. The Battery Show 2017 is co-located with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo.
Rogers at Booth 1845
For its part in supporting mobile and portable power applications, representatives from Rogers Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group will be on hand at The Battery Show, at Booth 1845, to display and explain the optimum use of its wide range of materials-based solutions . These include curamik® Power, curamik Power Plus, curamik Performance, ROLINX® Hybrid laminated busbars, ROLINX POWERCIRCUIT® Solutions, ROLINX Compact, ROLINX Flex, and ROLINX Housing Solutions.
curamik Power are cost-effective metallized ceramic substrates with excellent thermal conductivity (24 W/mK). They are suitable for general-purpose use where the dissipation of heat is a concern, including for photovoltaic (PV) inverters and electric power-steering modules. When a longer lifetime and better mechanical durability are required, curamik Power Plus substrates provide the ampacity and ruggedness needed for traction drive inverters in EVs and HEVs. curamik Performance substrates provide even further enhancements to mechanical robustness with the best trade-off between mechanical properties and thermal conductivity (90 W/mK), providing a good match for circuits in EV and HEV traction drive inverters.
Rogers ROLINX Hybrid laminated busbar is specifically design for battery cells connections in EVs and HEVs. This laminated busbar integrates flex circuits and is ideal for compact designs that use surface-mount components. These rugged busbars can handle voltages to 0.8 kV DC and power levels to 100 kW. Made with copper and aluminum conductors, their straightforward design eliminates wiring errors in power supply circuits, making these laminated busbars a good fit for battery cell connections.
Rogers’ economical ROLINX PowerCircuit Solutions are designed to replace thicker PCBs at higher power levels. These thick copper circuits include polyimide insulation and are compatible with wave soldering methods. They are rated for voltages as high as 0.8 kV and power levels to 200 kW, and feature a continuous operating temperature range of -50 to +125ºC.
ROLINX Compact are epoxy-powder-coated busbars for power applications, especially where space is limited. With a voltage rating to 2.5 kV AC and several megawatts power-handling capability, these miniature busbars are well suited for battery connections in EVs and HEVs as well as in space-constrained UPS designs.
ROLINX Flex are flexible busbars, formed of pure copper laminates with protective PVC insulation. Available in standard and custom lengths, these flexible busbars are ideal for applications which must endure vibration or thermal expansion. They are versatile as well as flexible, and can be used in battery connections for e-mobility applications, in battery connections in EVs and HEVs, and in drive systems and power supplies.
ROLINX Housing Solutions are designed to simplify the design and assembly of electronic equipment housings. These injected-molded structures combine connectors with busbars for reduced weight and low-inductance power connections in electronic equipment housings. Ideal for high-volume applications in automotive and aerospace products, they can handle power levels to 100 kW at continuous operating temperatures from -40 to +125ºC.
