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.
ToughRail Technology™ refers to the robust, highly customizable and multi- purposed housing assembly used in our new PowerWave Structured Busway System. Features include:
1Integral Signage Channel - designed for custom labeling of run or area indication markers.
2Optional Color Coded Busrail - to match your facility needs – flat black and clear anodized plus custom colors.
3Integrated Communication Channel - designed for load management at Tap Off Distribution Boxes.
4Isolated Ground Channel - a built-in option on all bus rail sizes.
The video below which shows a 10 foot (304.8 cm) busrail span with 580 lbs being suspended directly over top the busrail at the Splice Connector.
The PowerWave Bus System™ busrail can be mounted in both vertical and horizontal axes providing a wide range of flexible power distribution.
