Mettex has been supplying copper braided solutions for over 30 years. We have an extensive client base spanning across the general electrical, automotive, aerospace, communications and defence sectors amongst others, where our products meet and exceed the strictest of requirements.
Power shunts are large cross-sectional area copper braided connectors designed to meet the current carrying capacity of power distribution applications - designed with multi-layers of flat or round earth braids to achieve sizes up to 1000sqmm and carry currents in excess of 400 amps.
Power shunts are used as an alternative to solid bus bars and power cable assemblies capable of carrying very high currents yet are flexible, robust and easy to install.
Typical power shunt applications : power stations, transformers, motors, generators, switchgear, substations - low and high voltage.
Power Shunts - Large Earth Braid Connectors
T&D UK are established distributors of an extensive range of large braid connectors, also known as "Power Shunt" connectors with cross-sectional areas of up to 1000sqmm and current carrying capacities in excess of 1800amps - larger style earth braid power connectors are designed for heavy-duty power applications as flexible current carrying connectors requiring resistance to vibration. Robust, durable and flexible power shunt braided connectors are specified for power distribution in turbines, HV substations, power stations, distribution grids, electrified trains and rail systems as alternatives to solid bus bars.
Manufactured from bare copper, tin-plated copper or stainless steel, shunt style braid connectors can be supplied with or without polymeric insulation for mechanical protection and electrical insulation.
