Rogers Corporation to Exhibit Solutions for Advanced Battery Technologies at The Battery Show 2018

by donpedro

Rogers Corporation’s Power Electronics Solutions (PES) and Elastomeric Material Solutions (EMS) groups will exhibit at one of the leading global events for advanced battery technologies and related products. The Battery Show 2018 conference and exhibition is September 11-13, 2018 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 2018 is co-located with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo.

Rogers at Booth 1845
Representatives from Rogers’ PES and EMS will be at Booth 1845 to display and explain the optimum use of its wide range of materials-based solutions. Rogers’ EMS produces a variety of high performance engineered materials including PORON®  polyurethane foams, BISCO® performance silicones, ARLON® custom silicones, DSP commercial silicones, DeWAL PTFE and UHMW films and tapes, and XRD® extreme impact protection materials. These solutions, along with a variety of other offerings, are designed into products and applications in segments where high reliability and mission-critical performance are essential: automobiles, aerospace, electronics, protective gear, footwear, medical products and much more.

Visitors to Rogers´ booth will also have the chance to discover Rogers´ Power Electronics Solutions, such as curamik® ceramic substrates and the wide range of ROLINX® customized busbar solutions and capacitor-busbar assemblies renowned for their reliability, safety, and durability in the most demanding applications including mass transit and electric propulsion, industrial drives, renewable energy, and automotive systems. ROLINX busbar solutions are ideal for a wide range of power distribution applications in electric vehicles/hybrid-electric vehicles (EV/HEVs), wind/solar power and variable frequency drives (VFD).  ROLINX busbar solutions offer low inductance, compact and highly customizable designs and in combination with capacitors, extremely low inductance and high power density capabilities.

EV Battery Cell Interconnect System Session
The right batteries and design can make or break how an electric vehicle (EV) functions on the road, in terms of range, reliability, and performance under varying conditions. An important part of the design is battery cell interconnects that must provide suitable electrical interconnections and electrical contacts in the manufacturing and operational environment. Rogers will give an overview of battery cells and battery packs interconnections during the education session on Wednesday, September 12th in the Opal/Garnet Ballroom meeting room at 4:00 PM.

ROLINX CapLink Solutions are custom assemblies consisting of a number of capacitors integrated to a laminated busbar and are ideal for any power-management application requiring high-power handling capabilities, low equivalent series inductance (ESL), low equivalent series resistance (ESR) in small, light-weight assemblies such as DC link systems in EV/HEV as well as in industrial, solar-power and wind-power systems. ROLINX CapLink Solutions are an essential solution to support IGBT/SiC technology devices at very high switching frequencies with increased voltages and higher temperatures.

ROLINX PowerCircuit Solutions are the ideal alternative when the current and power requirements of the application exceed the capabilities of a standard PCB solution. Their compact 3D design and superior thermal management result in space and weight savings. ROLINX PowerCircuit Solutions are highly integrated structures that are solder-process compatible. These products help engineers design power circuitry with the smallest possible footprint.

ROLINX Hybrid busbars are especially designed to reduce installation time of a battery module by combining power and signal lines for voltage and temperature measurement, in a one piece solution. Integrated surface mount components, such as connectors, enhance the functionality of the assembly.

ROLINX Housing Solutions are designed to simplify the design and assembly of electronic equipment housings. These injection-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 are rated up to 100 kW at continuous operating temperatures from -40 to +125ºC.
