Busbar trunking systems consist of insulated copper or aluminium busbars enclosed in a trunking. IBAR utilise a specialist epoxy resin coating to insulate each conductor, the coating is applied to the busbars using an in-house developed and industry leading process. Modern busbar trunking is modular in design and is supplied in pre-fabricated lengths and available in a range of conductor configurations. The product range typically includes elbows, T-connectors, feeder units, panel flanges and various other standard or custom components that make it simple to configure for almost any application.
Traditional power cabling methods require long lengths of cabling to be installed in pre-fitted cable trays, then stripped and glanded to terminate.
IBAR busbar trunking systems have significant advantages over cable such as improved electrical performance, smaller form factor, speedier modular installation and flexibility / transformability of the overall system.
Another key benefit derives from the way that tap-off connections can be made to Distribution Busbar lengths; Tap-offs can be added, removed and repositioned as necessary. Busbar installations can be reconfigured easily, quickly and inexpensively if the user’s requirements change, as they frequently do in today’s business world.
Busbar trunking is also an environmentally friendly option. During installation, there is no waste or scrap (as there always is with cable) and furthermore busbar trunking can easily be removed and re-used where required.
