First of all, what is a Busway and what we use it for. Well, a Busway is a prefab electrical distribution system that consists of pre-tested bus bars, that are held in a protective enclosure, and this includes the fittings, and necessary accessories. Some businesses still use the old cable system, but Busway offers much better options with regard to safety, ease of installation, flexibility, performance and sustainability. Deciding to use Busway could be one of the best decisions that you could ever make, with regards to your business and here are some reasons why.
If you use Busway for your data centre, then you get to enjoy the many advantages and benefits that it offers. The following are just some of those, and there are just too many to be able to list them all here today.
- Compact size – All Busway systems use up much less space than that of cables, and this is especially true for high ampere rates. The Busway is made up of a metal body, and so the dissipation of heat is much better than that of cables. Another great thing about Busway, is that it can be removed or changed, and then reinstalled somewhere else within your business.
- Much safer – The problem with cable type systems, is that they can go on fire, and that same fire can easily spread throughout the whole business floor. The Busway, on the other hand, doesn’t burn, and it also doesn’t create any poisonous gases, that would be very dangerous for you and your employees.
- Shorter installation time – When you’re installing Busway, the time that it takes to do it, is a lot shorter than it would be for a cable system, and this, in turn, reduces the costs of getting someone to do the job. Frequently, cables get damaged by rats and mice chewing through them, but you don’t have this issue with Busway due to its compact and sturdy structure.
The most impressive thing about Busway, is that it greatly reduces the installation time, and they are also plug and play. Human error is also reduced because the electric circuits are very clearly identified, and this means that the wrong circuit won’t be shut off. The Busway is much smaller and lighter than traditional cable, which means that it takes up less space in any business property.
