Bus Bar Duct System (Bus Bar) vs. MP Husky Cable Bus System

Compared to Bus Bar Duct Systems (Bus Bar) the MP Husky Cable Bus System is more cost effective, flexible, and maintenance free. Over 45 years of cable bus installation experience has proven that MP Husky Cable Bus is the most reliable, cost-effective, flexible and maintenance free, low to medium voltage (600V.69kV), high amperage (1000A - 8000A) power distribution system available for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Bus Bar Duct has Higher Installation Cost

Bus Bar Duct systems (Bus Bar) utilize heavy pre-manufactured sections that are bolted in place and require heavy lift equipment for installation adding to project cost. Unlike Bus Bar Duct systems MP Husky Cable Bus Systems are engineered to fit specific locations, relatively light, cable support blocks are factory installed, and sections can installed by two men without booms, lifts or cranes.In addition Bus Bar Duct systems must be precisely aligned with the switchgear or transformer bus bars. Precise alignment is not required during MP Husky Cable Bus installation.

Bus Bar Duct System has Higher Enclosure Cost

Outdoor Bus Bar Duct systems (Bus Bar) are completely enclosed. Since the bus bar duct enclosure has insufficient cooling larger bus bars must be used due to de-rating. Bus Bar Duct systems also require the use of anti-condensation devices like space heaters. Space heaters and larger enclosure increase the cost of Bus Bar Duct Systems. MP Husky Ventilated Cable Bus System can be installed both indoors and outdoors. Ventilation allows the use of the free air rating single conductor cables.

Bus Bar Duct System has Higher Maintenance Cost

Bus Bar Duct requires heater strips to keep moisture out of the system. MP Husky Cable Bus systems are ventilated for both outdoor and indoor conditions and unlike Bus Bar Duct Systems do not require heater strips to keep moisture out of the system.
