The busway definition.
According to NEMA, busway is defined as a prefabricated electrical distribution system consisting of busbars, bus plugs, terminal boxes and tap boxes in a protective enclosure, including straight lengths, fittings and accessories. The terms busway and bus duct can be interchangeable, although busway refers to the entire system, while bus duct refers to the large sheets of metal used to conduct high current electricity.
The biggest advantage of busway is its ease of use and installation, as it provides a much simpler way to distribute power by replacing the need for cable and conduit, making your electrical system more efficient. Busway is a cost-effective solution used throughout commercial and industrial applications, particularly in manufacturing facilities, hospitals, large commercial and residential structures, and IT facilities.
Say goodbye to cable and conduit. Say hello to busway.
Busway is extremely beneficial in electrical systems that require a lot of flexibility, but that is not the only advantage when compared to cable bus. Bus duct typically takes up less space and when used across a multi-floor, multi-tenant building, bus duct only requires a single circuit for all floors. It is also much simpler to reconfigure busway if you need to expand, alter or move parts of your busway system.
