nVent ERIFLEX provides low-voltage connection and distribution products for several applications, including, but not limited to energy storage systems, fast DC chargers, battery packs, inverters, transformers, combiner boxes, recombiners, and the interconnection between electrical systems. This product offering provides a solution to add more inside an enclosure while minimizing the potential heat rise.
As electrical power conductors have evolved, so has the need for better insulation methods to provide safe, reliable performance in various applications. nVent ERIFLEX Advanced Technology (Advanced Technology) provides the most unique, safe and flexible solution for electrical power conductors. Advanced Technology is formulated with the latest safety technology to be low smoke, halogen-free and flame retardant.
nVent ERIFLEX products hold a wide range of certifications across the industry, meeting even the most stringent global compliance requirements. These requirements include IEC and ANSI/UL, as well as DNV GL and ABS, allowing for the installation of nVent ERIFLEX solutions in a vast range of applications. nVent ERIFLEX solutions are typically used in electrical systems rated up to 1000VAC IEC/UL and 1500VDC IEC/UL and for ampacities ranging from 80A to 7400A.
Application: Inside a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Container
nVent manufacturers low-voltage power distribution, connection and grounding products used in BESS containers. These products are engineered with safety and reliability in mind, and the nVent team will collaborate with design engineers to provide tailored solutions that meet your needs. Most nVent ERIFLEX products are intended for power distribution in higher-ampacity installation in the low-voltage industry.
Essential nVent ERIFLEX products for inside the BESS container are:
- nVent ERIFLEX Flexibar Advanced
- nVent ERIFLEX Power and Distribution Blocks
- nVent ERIFLEX Busbar support systems, including Low Voltage Insulators and compact adjustable busbar supports
- nVent ERIFLEX Power Braids and Shunts
- nVent ERIFLEX Grounding and Bonding Straps
Application: Interconnection Between BESS Container and the Power Grid
The power connection from the BESS container and the power grid is essential and needs reliable products to maintain a secure connection.
The all-new nVent ERIFLEX FleXbus System provides a patented connection solution between two pieces of electrical equipment. This unique concept reduces total installation cost without a specialized workforce or expensive tools.
Additional benefits include:
- Copper-clad aluminum technology allows for reduced weight.
- Higher current efficiency using the flat braided technology.
- Increased flexibility due to the flat braid technology and durable insulation characteristics.
- Minimize the rapid spread of fire due to our proprietary low-smoke, halogen-free, flame-retardant insulation.
- Minimize the risk of hot spots due to a direct connection without the need for crimping a lug.
