Offering many sizes and configurations of shunts tailored to our customers needs, Flex-Cable has recognized the importance of engineering new concepts and improving technology in the shunt market. Flex-Cable’s resistance welded shunts improve electrical and mechanical properties in comparison to conventionally welded or riveted shunts. The individual copper strips of the shunts are fused, assuring minimal resistance and operation temperature which increases product life and reduces downtime.
Flex-Cable's new molecular fused process, along with a tin plated process, offers the following advantages to the resistance welding market overall:
▶ Extra lubricity between the leaves.
▶ Long term corrosion protection of the leaves.
▶ Low temperature joining process. No
fired molecular annealing of the leaves.
▶ Near perfect joint resistance. Combined joint resistance typically less than 1/2 micro ohm.
▶ Long shelf life resulting from low temperature jointing process, which seals out corrosion. Low resistance is maintained throughout the life of the shunt.
▶ Improved appearance.
▶ Eliminates the toxic hazard of lead in a soldered joint.
▶ Computer controlled process gives optimum blousing.
Flex-Cable's shunts are fused with high conductivity and offer an optional silver plating on contact surfaces and Teflon jacket available for improved wear and tear, insulation and protection.
Shunt materials available:
▶ Dead soft
▶ Any of the above with “Hi-Life” TFE coating
