PowerWave Bus System Busrail

PowerWave Bus System Busrail Elements
The PowerWave Bus System™ Busrail is Comprised of Five Major Elements

1The Housing – Aluminum Anodized protects the assembly, improves thermal properties, and incorporates the ToughRail Technology™ allowing various support methods, site specific labeling and system communication links, all in the same rail housing.

2The Insulators - Capturing the bus bars, made of Class B 148°C material gives proper surface to phase clearance, an enhanced short circuit capability and an insulating capacity of up to 1000 V.

3The Bus Bars - Vary in thickness depending on ampacity, all bus bars are nickel-plated to resist corrosion and minimize contact resistance and are made of 99% pure electrical grade copper.

4An Integrated Communication Channel - Monitor and manage power at the branch circuit for effective power utilization.

5Isolated Ground Channel - Isolated ground is a built-in option on all bus rail sizes.
