A bus duct is one of the effective, modern and popular methods of distributing power to various loads without any damage. It is used as an alternate means of conducting electricity to power cables in both indoor and outdoor industrial and commercial settings. Its demand increases day by day because of its current carrying capacity.
These are made of copper and aluminum, which provide complete protection against mechanical damage and dust buildup. There are so many types available in the market, for example, Plug-in, isolated phase, segregated, cable, sandwich, 11KV, 33KV and so on.
All these types are mostly used for lighting purpose in high-rise buildings, manufacturing units, and power company switchyards. Here are some types.
Cable bus duct: These are mostly used for conducting the high amount of current between different devices. These are available with all the necessary equipment like flanges, wall entrance, termination kits, supporting structure, equipment connection et cetera.
These are widely used to generate a high amount of current between generators to transformers, generators to switchgears, switchgears to switchgears and MCCs, transformer to switchgears and MCCs to large motors.
Plug-in bus duct: These are used to distribute current down the length of the building with extreme safety. One of its biggest advantages is that it has the ability to remove or add a circuit without even touching the whole duct.
These are mostly used in industrial power plug & sockets, building wiring, multiphase power plugs & sockets and many other electrical applications.
Sandwich bus duct: These are helping in co-planning electric supply to other instrumentations in a productive way and mostly used to bear the power from the transformer to electric panels. These are made with high-quality raw material and require less maintenance.
These are used in different sectors such as commercial, domestic, manufacturing and infrastructure sectors.
Isolated phase bus duct: These are mostly used to produce a large amount of current for producing stations or substations, where circuit protection is very difficult to provide.
These are widely used in electric power transmission, building wiring, mechanical and multiphase power fitting and several other electrical applications.
11Kv bus duct: These are widely used to obtain main power into the high-rise building and for connecting large switchgears. It is very well-known for its stability to handle different climate pressure.
As they are durable and having a long working life, they are mostly used to supply electricity in the industrial sector.
