Areas of application of earth braids

In modern switchboards with e.g., programmable logic controllers or fieldbus connections, high-frequency grounding is extremely important.

Not only the ohmic direct current resistance but also the impedance, which increases with frequency, play a major role. Here, the shape of the conductor, the total length and the connection technology are decisive. MBS earth braids have a lower impedance than comparable round ground cables and, for this reason alone, are much better suited for establishing high-frequency grounding.

In addition, there is the ideally low contact resistance, which can only be achieved by welding. The MBS earth braids are also extremely well suited for establishing the electromagnetic compatibility of different system parts and devices.

Conductor material MBS earth braids

  • Highly flexible flat braids made of tinned Cu-ETP1
  • Electrical conductance 58 MS/m
  • Single wire thickness 0.15 mm for a maximum of flexibility
  • Cu-ETP1 tinned (corrosion-resistant)
  • Cross-sections from 6 to 50 mm²
  • Length is defined as the hole center distance
  • Lengths from 100 to 500 mm, in 50 mm steps

By welding the connections, minimal contact resistance is achieved. This eliminates the need for additional contact sleeves with increased resistances.

  • The welding guarantees constant resistances. There is no aging due to corrosion, as is the case with the use of contact sleeves.
  • The welded connections can withstand exceptionally high short-circuit currents with high limit temperatures.
  • In contrast to soldered connections, the connections cannot be softened.
