Electronics/Electrical

Electronics are everywhere in our daily life. Thanks to their ideal properties and reasonable prices, alloys are found in many of the components that make up our electronic devices.

Busway Bimetallic Clips/Copper Contact Busway
  • Copper/aluminium silver plated bimetal plate with copper cladding on an aluminium conductor is the typical combination used at busway connection contacts with high current/high pressure. The outer contact surface of the connection plate is silver-plated copper and the inside surface is aluminium. All of the busway connection zone is silver-to-silver contact. Copper is placed only where it is required (i.e., at contacts). Fretting corrosion does not happen as the hardness of copper is much higher than aluminium.

Relays / ELCC
  • Thanks to their magnetic properties (high flux density for power applications), alloys are used for electromagnetic relays where it is necessary to control the opening and closing of an electrical circuit and the breaking function must be dissociated from the control function. 
  • MCB/MCCB/RCCB: Electrical Grade clad has long been used as the incoming and outgoing terminal in residential and industrial circuit breakers.

Safety Control
  • Bimetals are used in Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB) and Moulded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCB) to protect the electric supply network against over intensity - thanks to the principle of two or more different components that are bonded together and that are often heated directly in the device by the electric current passing through them. Sometimes, bimetal bends and interrupts the circuit after being indirectly heated by a wrapping resistance wire.

Shielding

The high permeability of magnetic alloys make them an ideal material for shielding against low and middle frequency electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Cable shielding: These shielding materials consists of a core material made from stainless or carbon steel or high-strength/low-alloy steel cladded with copper on both sides. The copper reduces crosstalk and electrically protects the cable from lightning strikes or ground faults, while the steel increases resistance to gnawing by rodents and reduces cost by allowing for the use of thinner gauge material.Cladded shielding material is ideally suited for telephone wires and cables and is a cost-effective replacement for copper, bronze or coated aluminium shields. Typical ICS clad products include Copper/Alloy Steel/Copper 15/70/15.
