ERICO FLEXIBAR Flexible Insulated Busbar

Characteristics

  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR is UL® Recognized and CSA certified. The black insulation is moisture resistant, flame (VW-1) and UV retardant, and self-extinguishing (UL 94 V0).
  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR connections are made by punching directly through the laminates. Since there are no lugs to purchase, fewer parts are required. Installation is simpler and faster.
  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR is formed with multiple layers of thin electrolytic copper.
  • Easily formed, ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR holds its shape, increasing the efficiency of your designs. When bending the conductor into place, its laminates slide freely within the insulation, conforming to your design configurations.

Advantages of Using ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR

  • Requires less installation space when compared to cable
  • Reduces assembly time
  • Eliminates the cost and installation of lugs
  • Reduces the length and number of conductors
  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR is terminated like a busbar, so connections operate at a lower temperature
  • Improves design flexibility
  • Easily formed and holds its shape
  • Insulation allows for closer spacing than traditional busbar designs
  • Improves aesthetics
  • Reduces inventory costs
  • Lower installed cost

Comparison to Cable

  • When compared to conventional cable, ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR requires less copper to achieve comparable ampacity
  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR offers space savings
  • No lugs or intermediate connection devices are used, improving reliability
  • ERIFLEX FLEXIBAR eliminates the multiple cables and lugs which offers the most efficient and cost-effective connection available
