Abstract

See full text

An electrical assembly for a motor controller is disclosed that includes an electrical lead. The electrical lead has a conductive trace within an insulating material and that extends a length between first and second ends. An electrical pad is in electrical continuity with and extends from the conductive trace through the insulating material at the first end. The pad includes an aperture providing a securing feature. An electrical component is supported by and integral with the second end, in one example. The electrical component is in electrical continuity with the conductive trace at the second end. A bus bar provides a joint having a first cross-sectional area. The electrical lead is flexible and is removably secured to the joint by the securing feature to provide electrical continuity from a capacitor to the bus bar. The flexible electrical lead has a second cross-sectional area substantially less than the first cross-sectional area.
