The benefits of busbar power distribution systems for U.S. and global applications

Download Now


Busbar power distribution systems are common throughout the world and are rapidly gaining broader acceptance in the United States due to their flexibility, safety and ability to reduce overall design and integration costs. In addition to these factors, increasing globalization has led many designers of industrial control systems to move toward design techniques, electrical components and integration methods that are readily accepted worldwide — making busbar systems more attractive than ever before. This paper examines the benefits that a busbar system can provide to designers, integrators and end users of industrial control panels, especially when compared to "traditional" block-and-cable power distribution solutions found primarily in the United States.
