Foothill Ranch, CA, United States, 2009/07/07 - Bal Seal Engineering will team up with ETIC to bring its Bal Contact electrical contact spring to industry professionals at the International Exhibition on Electrical Power and Equipment (EP Shanghai), held July 8-10, 2009 in Shanghai, P.R. China.
Bal Seal, a Foothill Ranch, Calif.-based provider of connecting, conducting and shielding solutions for energy OEMs, said it will share exhibit space at the EP event with ETIC, an exclusive distributor of the Bal Contact line for power transmission and distribution applications in China. Using product samples and a series of photorealistic animation sequences displayed on a large-screen TV, the two companies will show EP attendees how the simple electrical contact – fashioned from a precision-engineered canted-coil spring – can help increase the reliability and performance of power transmission and distribution equipment.
The Bal Contact, a proven solution for high, mid and low current applications, is available in a wide variety of coil heights and materials. It is designed to maintain a nearly constant force over a broad compression range, compensating for large mating tolerances and temperature changes without significant deviation from its initial force. Each coil in the Bal Contact works independently, maintaining contact with the mating surface and ensuring maximum conductivity.
Typical applications for the Bal Contact include busbar connections, gas-insulated switchgear contacts, circuit breakers and industrial fuse boxes. The versatile component also functions as an EMI shielding/grounding element.
EP 2009 attendees can learn more about the Bal Contact and other conducting, connecting, and shielding solutions by visiting representatives from Bal Seal and ETIC at booth #1L09.
