Abstract : This report describes quick disconnect intercell busbar for providing an easily removable, individually insulated bussing system for deep submergence batteries. A bussing conductor having silver plated copper pin terminations carries battery currents with a minimal voltage drop. The busbar is insulated to provide sealing of the battery electrical circuits thereby eliminating shorts caused by electrolyte contamination or seawater intrusion. A low current conductor connected to the bussing conductor with suitable insulation provides for monitoring of intercell voltages. This is a division of application Serial No. 830,241 filed 2 September 1977. (Author)
