Busbars for Switchgear
Switchgear systems require all essential components to be fully operational during their service life and busbars, a key module within the switchgear system, are something we have perfected over years in the industry. Precision measurement, design and equipment that utilises EHRT technology allows us to manufacture the highest quality Busbars for switchgear for clients in any industry where this system is a necessity.
There are several enclosure designs for medium voltage switchgear, but the most favoured style is metal enclosed with isolated and insulated apparatus compartments. Switchgear busbars deliver power from the external feeders to all the branch overcurrent protection circuits that are contained within the installation. Switchgear busbar are used in splitters, panel boards, switchgear, switchboards, and numerous electrical enclosures and cabinets.
Busbars are fast becoming irreplaceable due to their high safety factor and convenience as traditional cabling and trunking is more expensive and time consuming to install. Automation, including switchgear, is becoming the segment of the UK electrical and electronics industry that is growing the fastest. Switchgear must therefore adapt to demands of higher current ratings in smaller unit sizes and the need for custom made busbars to rush to meet this demand has pushed us here at ILF to innovate in our design and delivery of this product, so that clients can be ahead of curve as industry standards and technologies change.
There will be situations where customisation is needed. If your installation is in a high temperature environment for example, such as refineries and chemical processing plants, higher rated busbar or dielectric finishing combined with electroplating to help reduce surface corrosion may be a consideration.
We can accurately guide you to the right choice of finish that will maintain the reliability and safety of your system and address any other specifications that you may have. Our design team will make sure that any switchgear system overcomes the challenges presented to it and we will provide you with a product that will do its job, every time.
