Cable Bus vs Bus Duct vs Cable Tray

Cable Bus is most often compared to non-segregated phase bus duct and cable tray. In both indoor and outdoor installations of low to medium voltage (600V.69kV), high amperage (1000A - 8000A) power distribution systems, cable bus provides a more reliable, cost-effective, flexible, and maintenance free power distribution system than either cable tray or Bus Duct.

Cable Bus systems include the following components:

Fully enclosed & ventilated aluminum, stainless steel of hot dipped galvanized cable bus housing

Fully rated factory insulated power cables

Non-magnetic cable support blocks to maintain individual cable spacing and provide short circuit bracing of a minimum 100KA RMS Symmetrical Amps.

Equipment connections

Flanges

Wall entrance seals

Fire stops

Elbows

Offsets

Terminal lugs

Termination kits

Supporting structures

Miscellaneous parts

Insulated neutral phase conductors and ground conductors (bare, tin plated, or insulated) are also provided as an option.
