Pentair introduces 60mm busbar system for power distribution
By Stephanie Lai
June 27, 2013 – Pentair Equipment Protection has introduced the Hoffman Wöhner 60 mm busbar system, delivering a direct mounting solution for power distribution. Components are mounted onto pre-wired adapters that snap onto sliding DIN rails, reducing raceway and bending radius space to enable close proximity placement with fewer wiring errors, less assembly labor and more connection flexibility, says the company. The 60mm busbar system distributes three-phase power over 1600A at 690V, along with supplying single phase or DC power. The system can be cut into lengths fitting most electrical enclosures, with vertical and horizontal positioning for space optimization. The busbar system’s input and output terminals accommodate wire sizes up to 600MCM.
