Abstract

A bus bar formed from circular wire in a grid pattern provides an economical, simplified construction and affords ease of multiple connections. A first layer of a plurality of substantially parallel circular electrical conductors 1 is overlaid by a second layer of a plurality of substantially parallel circular electrical conductors 2 disposed normally to conductors 1. Welded connection is made between conductors 1 and conductors 2 where they are in contact, resulting in a unitary planar wire screen type electrical bus bar.

Welded Wire Screen Bus Bar

A bus bar formed from circular wire in a grid pattern provides an economical, simplified construction and affords ease of multiple connections. A first layer of a plurality of substantially parallel circular electrical conductors 1 is overlaid by a second layer of a plurality of substantially parallel circular electrical conductors 2 disposed normally to conductors 1. Welded connection is made between conductors 1 and conductors 2 where they are in contact, resulting in a unitary planar wire screen type electrical bus bar.

This unitary construction is then coated with a suitable liquid insulating material. One unit may be used, or several such units may be used in stacked form as a need for more than one unit arises. Terminal connections may be made along an edge of the unit or at a central or intermediate point between edges.
