Channel and Busbar Systems
Channel and busbar systems are two different methods used for electrical power distribution.
Duct systems distribute power by running the power cable through a duct. Duct systems are typically made of metal or plastic and are mounted on walls, ceilings or floors. Duct systems ensure the safe and efficient transmission of energy and facilitate cable management.
Busbar systems consist of short power cables connected to the protrusions, connection terminals on a bar made of conductive materials such as aluminum or copper. This method enables energy to be transmitted with high efficiency and is a cost effective solution. In addition, busbar systems are more compact and require less maintenance.
Both systems have different advantages and the choice varies depending on the features of the application. For example, duct systems are generally more flexible and easier to install, but cost more. Busbar systems, on the other hand, are a more efficient and cost-effective solution, but their installation is a bit more complicated.
Generally, large-scale industrial facilities use busbar systems for energy distribution, while duct systems are preferred in smaller facilities.
