MERSEN FISCHERLINK : LOW INDUCTANCE BUS BAR AND CAPACITOR ASSEMBLY FOR SIC DC-LINK

 -- Optimally designed and assembled capacitor and bus bar sub assembly


NEWBURYPORT, MA USA (March 2020) – Mersen is pleased to introduce Fischerlink 2.0, an optimally designed and assembled capacitor and bus bar sub assembly. Traditionally capacitors are connected to bus bars by screw or solder connections which may cause increased inductance in the sub-assembly. Mersen Fischerlink 2.0 uses laser welding to connect capacitor terminals to bus bars, thus improving the overall performance of the assembly and reducing the footprint.


Laser welding the connections to bus bars has several advantages compared to traditional screw or solder mounting methods:

  •     Laser welding reduces the inductance and increases capacitance. The capacitance per volume can be increased up to 20%.

  •     The assembly is done entirely by Mersen: all parts are 100% tested before delivery, providing customers additional peace of mind.

  •     The sub-assembly of capacitor and bus bar are rolled into one single part number, offering additional savings in administrative costs.
