Introduction to PowerWave Bus System Components

Busrail

1 The PowerWave Bus System Busrail utilizes Tough Rail Technology which ensures your structured overhead busway is not only flexible, but rugged and offers an almost continuous open channel to distribute power. The extruded aluminum housing is of a one-piece design and has integrated channels for both an isolated ground and communications cable for our integrated branch circuit monitoring solution. The busrail also comes in Elbows, Tees and Crosses enabling you to create an almost unlimited number of overhead power distribution layouts.

Tap Off Box

2 The PowerWave Bus System Tap Off Box is inserted into the busrail and mechanically fastened, then energized. This two-step process is safer as it allows for a more controlled environment than a twist-in receptacle. Six breaker poles, modular construction and up to 100A of available power enable you to create an almost unlimited number of tap off box configurations. Combine this with our patented branch circuit monitoring solutions and you have the most flexible and powerful overhead power distribution solution on the market.

Splice Connector

3 The PowerWave Bus System Splice Connector allows the Busway sections to be joined both electrically and mechanically with a single component. Cam-action ensures a stable and complete connection of the bus, while at the same time allowing for visual inspection from below to ensure all junctions are properly connected.

End Feed

4 The PowerWave Bus System End Feed receives and then supplies the structured busrail with power. Power is supplied to the End Feed via cable or cable/conduit. The End Feed also houses multiple circuit boards which collect data for our branch circuit monitoring solutions. Click here to learn more about the PowerWave Bus System End Feed.

Integrated Monitoring

5 The PowerWave Bus System offers multiple hardware and software monitoring options. Our monitoring solutions have the ability to monitor both the entire bus rail and each individual branch circuit. Power data is transmitted to local monitors, integrated into existing building management systems or stored in the cloud through PDI PowerMap.

Mounting Hardware

6 The PowerWave Bus System can be mounted from the ceiling and wall in both vertical and horizontal planes. No other busway offers this much flexibility. Click here to learn more about PowerWave Bus System Mounting Hardware.
