Alternately known as bus bar or buss bar or bussbar in the electronic power supply system, busbar refers to a metallic strip or bar, which is placed inside switchgear, busway enclosures and panel. They are installed for delivering high current power distribution locally. Besides, they are also used for connecting high voltage equipment at the electrical switchyards and low voltage equipment in battery banks. One of their key features is that they are uninsulated and backed by sufficient stiffness so that they can be supported in air by the insulated pillars.
Provided below are a few facts about busbar distribution that you can acquaint yourself with. Read on to explore.
What exactly should you find out about busbar distribution?
The earliest history of the busbar trunking method can be traced back in the 1930s in the United States. The entire system was introduced in the country to cater to the power demands of the high rise buildings and the evolving production technologies in large factories. In the 1970’s the busbar trunking system was introduced in Turkey by EAE Elektrik A.S. At present, these (EAE) products are exported to 41 countries across the world. Needless to say, the “scale” of success as you can gauge is actually steered by EAE’s ability to meet the high quality standards. Backed by ISO 9001 quality standard and ISO 14001 environmental standard, the products thus coming out from their stable have drawn huge acclaim from all quarters.
The E-line KX Compact Busbar, the E-line KB (800A … 6300A), E-line KX (400A …6300A) are just a few of the busbar products that have been introduced in the market and have already started gaining traction owing to the following qualities:
- High endurance to short circuit owing to compact construction
- Ability to deliver energy even from joints or the tap-off points
- Very high resistance to fire (IEC 60331)
- Single-bolt joint construction
- Better heat dissipation
- Seismic resistance
- Requires much less space compared to cable systems
- Low voltage drop in comparison to cable systems
- Single bolt joint construction
