The Benefits of Busbar Power Distribution Systems for North American & Global Applications

May 18, 2015

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. Busbar power distribution systems are common throughout the world and are rapidly gaining broader acceptance in North America due to their flexibility, safety and ability to reduce overall design and integration costs. This paper from Rittal 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 North America.
